OC Register: Angels fall to Brewers, losing 6th straight Cactus League game

Recommended Posts

THE GAME: The Angels lost, 4-3, to the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday in Phoenix, dropping their sixth consecutive Cactus League game.

PITCHING REPORT: Right-hander Griffin Canning gave up two runs in 4⅓ innings. He worked around six hits, striking out two and walking one. One run scored when Christian Yelich hit a chopper over the head of first baseman Miguel Sanó, who was holding a runner at first. It went for a double. The other run came on a long homer by Yelich. … Right-hander Hunter Strickland allowed a two-run homer to Willie Adames, snapping a tie in the fifth. The homer came on an 0-and-2 pitch. Strickland, who is competing for a bullpen spot, has been among the Angels’ best pitchers this spring at throwing strikes, with 10 strikeouts and no walks in eight innings. … Right-hander Ben Joyce pitched a scoreless inning, hitting 102 mph with his fastball. He also walked two. Joyce has walked nine in 7⅓ innings. … Right-hander Carlos Estévez pitched a perfect inning, striking out two.

HITTING REPORT: Mickey Moniak lined a routine single into right field, but the ball skipped past outfielder Jackson Chourio and Moniak got to third. Moniak was at third with no outs, but the Angels couldn’t drive him in. Jo Adell struck out. Zach Neto hit a flyout, after fouling off a bunt. Matt Thaiss then hit a flyout. … Sanó drew two more walks. Although Sanó is 6 for 35 (.171) this spring, he’s drawn six walks and hit three home runs, so his OPS is .739. … Livan Soto pushed home a run with a suicide squeeze, tying the score in the fourth inning. Manager Ron Washington said he would begin using more of that kind of situational hitting for the final week of games in Arizona.

DEFENSE REPORT: Canning slipped and fell to his back when trying to field a bunt between third base and the mound. Canning smiled as he was getting up. … Moniak made a sliding catch on a line drive hit in front of him in center field. … Thaiss, the catcher, threw out a runner trying to steal. The Angels have thrown out 36.7% of would-be base stealers this spring, the third-best rate in the majors.

UP NEXT: Angels (LHP Reid Detmers) vs. Reds (RHP Hunter Greene) at Tempe Diablo Stadium, Tuesday, 1:10 p.m. PT, Bally Sports West, 830 AM

Six straight losses and Sandoval our opening day starter give me that familiar sinking feeling about the season.

At least Trout and Rendon are still healthy.

The weird thing about Sandoval is he tends to be laser focused on high profile/leverage games, for the most part.

It’s the games against the A’s, Royals and lower leverage games where he falls apart.  And often very early in the game.

I know he has stated he has been working on things in Spring Training, but he hasn’t exactly looked very good in whatever he’s “working on.”
