OC Register: Brandon Drury homer caps comeback for Angels in victory over Padres

Recommended Posts

THE GAME: The Angels scored five runs in the sixth inning to overcome a four-run deficit, beating the Padres, 5-4, on Sunday in Tempe, Ariz.

PITCHING REPORT: Right-hander Chase Silseth gave up one run in four innings, making him the first Angels pitcher this spring to finish four innings. He allowed a run without a hit in the first inning, when he walked a batter and hit a batter. “Rough couple batters there in the first,” Silseth said. “I settled in, started throwing it through the zone. … Got that little feel and took it for the rest of the ballgame.” After that he retired nine out of 10 hitters, giving up one hit. Silseth, who had been scheduled for 55 pitches, was so efficient he had to throw another 15 in the bullpen after finishing in the game. Silseth, however, again saw his velocity drop slightly during his outing, from 96 mph in the first inning to 93 mph in the fourth. Silseth has allowed one run in 8-1/3 innings this spring. … Right-hander Victor Mederos, who hadn’t allowed a run in his first six innings this spring, gave up three runs in 2-2/3 innings. He worked a scoreless fifth. He gave up three in the sixth, getting pulled with two outs. He re-entered for the seventh and added a perfect inning. … Luis Garcia, who recorded the final out of the sixth inning, ended up getting credit for the victory. … Closer Carlos Estévez worked a perfect ninth to pick up the save. It was the first time this spring that Estévez had been used in a save situation.

HITTING REPORT: Brandon Drury hit his first homer of the spring, a two-run shot that capped a five-run sixth inning to give the Angels their first lead of the game. The Angels had a single, double, triple and homer in the inning. … Mike Trout started the inning with a bloop triple. The ball was a popup that dropped just beyond the reach of the diving right fielder. Trout, who struck out in his other two trips, is 6 for 29 (.207) this spring. … Aaron Hicks yanked a two-run double into right field. Livan Soto scored from first on the play, sliding just under the tag. … Earlier in the game, Luis Rengifo lined a single into center field and he doubled. They were his first two hits of the spring. Rengifo, who is now 2 for 11, got a late start because of a hamstring issue. … Anthony Rendon grounded out twice in his first game after missing a week because of groin tightness.

UP NEXT: Angels (LHP Patrick Sandoval) vs. Rangers (RHP Nathan Eovaldi) at Tempe Diablo Stadium, Monday, 1:10 p.m. PT, Bally Sports West, 830 AM.
