OC Register: Taylor Ward homers in Angels’ Cactus League loss to Cubs

Recommended Posts

THE GAME: The Angels returned to action following the previous day’s rainout, losing 4-3 to the Chicago Cubs in a Cactus League game Saturday in Tempe, Ariz.

PITCHING REPORT: Right-hander José Soriano gave up three runs in 3 1/3 innings, two on a long homer from Christopher Morel. Soriano has been getting work as a starter this spring, but it’s still possible the Angels drop back into the bullpen if reliever Robert Stephenson starts on the injured list, which is increasingly likely. … Right-hander Guillo Zuñiga worked a scoreless inning. … Right-hander Ben Joyce pitched a scoreless inning, allowing one hit but then inducing a double play. … Right-hander Hunter Strickland struck out the side in one inning of work. Strickland has nine strikeouts and no walks in 7 1/3 innings this spring, allowing one run.

HITTING REPORT: Taylor Ward hit a two-run homer, his first of the spring. … Mike Trout doubled down the left-field line. He also reached on an error. Trout has 7 hits in his last 22 at-bats after starting the spring with an 0 for 10. Trout also stole his first base of the spring. …  The Angels scored a run in the bottom of the ninth and had the tying run at third when the game ended.

DEFENSE REPORT: First baseman Brandon Drury hung with a ground ball that took a wicked hop in the first inning. It was the second time this spring that Drury has started a game at first, with the others at second. … Second baseman Luis Rengifo made a bad throw after fielding a routine grounder. The ball went into the dugout, so it was a two-base error. Rengifo also couldn’t knock down a hard-hit ball to his backhand side up the middle. It was scored a hit. … Trout tracked down a fly ball deep into the gap in left-center… A fly ball dropped between Trout and right fielder Aaron Hicks.

UP NEXT: Angels (LHP Patrick Sandoval) at Diamondbacks (RHP Zac Gallen) at Salt River Fields, 1:10 p.m. PT Sunday, Bally Sports West, 830 AM.
