OC Register: Angels shut out by Royals, fall to Reds in split-squad games

Recommended Posts

THE GAMES: The Angels lost a pair of games on Sunday, falling 1-0 to the Kansas City Royals at Tempe Diablo Stadium and losing, 9-4, to the Cincinnati Reds at Goodyear Ballpark.

PITCHING REPORT: In Tempe, right-hander Andrew Wantz got the start and pitched two scoreless innings, although he gave up three hits in the second. Wantz is a candidate for the Angels bullpen. “Out of the chute, Wantzy setting the tone was big,” said Angels bench coach Ray Montgomery, who led the team in Tempe while manager Ron Washington went to Goodyear. “He came in and attacked the zone.  I liked his presence. I liked how he finished some hitters. I liked how he mixed and matched.” … Left-hander Drew Pomeranz and right-hander Hunter Strickland each worked one perfect inning. … Right-hander Jimmy Herget gave up a leadoff single, but he struck out the next two and got a fly ball to escape with a scoreless inning. … The only run the Royals scored was an unearned run against right-hander Kelvin Caceres in the fifth inning. … In Goodyear, left-hander Kenny Rosenberg gave up one run in two innings. … Right-hander Luis Rangel gave up five runs, including a three-run homer by Luke Maile.

HITTING REPORT: In Tempe, Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon were both hitless in two at-bats. They each had a chance to drive in a run in the third inning, after Aaron Hicks doubled. … In Goodyear, outfield prospect Nelson Rada led off the game with a walk and then he stole second and third. … Jason Martin drove in a run with a sacrifice fly and he also doubled. Martin has driven in three runs in his first two games. … Miguel Sanó struck out twice and was hit by a pitch. Sanó played even though he just arrived in camp on Sunday after being delayed by visa issues.

DEFENSE REPORT: In Tempe, Hicks threw out a runner at the plate from right field, ending the second inning. … Second baseman Brandon Drury made a leaping attempt to catch a line drive, but it hit off his glove. It was ruled a hit. … Third baseman Arol Vera made a diving play. The ball initially hit off his glove, but he recovered quickly enough to still get the out at first. … First baseman Eric Wagaman made a lunging grab of a ground ball that was headed down the line, but later in the inning he failed to catch a throw, for an error. That extended the inning, allowing the Royals to score the only run of the game on a Caceres wild pitch.

UP NEXT: Angels (RHP Griffin Canning) at Giants (RHP Mason Black) at Scottsdale Stadium, Monday, 12:05 p.m. PT, Bally Sports West, 830 AM.
