Entering Saturday’s game, Jo Adell was struggling at the plate. Granted, he only had six at bats, but he had yet to collect a hit yet. Well, he finally got in the hit column and did so in dramatic fashion.

He crushed a two-run home run for his first hit of the spring.

That was the lone offense all day for the Angels, as they fell to the Rockies, 8-2. In other news at the plate, Anthony Rendon made his second start of the spring, going 0-for-2 at the plate. Juan Lagares, who the Angels signed to a minor-league contract, continued his hot hitting at the plate as he collected two hits. Through the first week of spring, he’s 6-for-9 at the plate.

On the mound, Jose Quintana made his second start. He was great, as he threw two scoreless innings with four strikeouts. Jake Faria had a great outing in relief, as he retired the side in the sixth inning on three strikeouts.
