His three-run home run in the sixth inning gave the Angels the lead.
LA put up four runs in the sixth, along with four runs in the eighth. They scored nine runs over the course of the final four innings.
Andrew Heaney made his second start of the spring. His first outing he threw two scoreless innings. Yesterday, he threw three innings, allowing two runs on three hits. Through five innings so far this spring, he’s struck out four and issued zero walks.
