Angels edge Padres, 6-5

BASEBALL

Four-run sixth inning is the key.

March 10, 2010|By Mike DiGiovanna

Angels 6, San Diego 5 >>>
Tempe, Ariz.
AT THE PLATE:
Ryan Mount
hit a home run,
Reggie Willits
stroked a two-run single and
Michael Ryan
had an RBI single to key a four-run sixth inning. Ryan, who is trying to win a reserve outfield spot, also doubled in the fifth.
Bobby Wilson
hit a two-run triple in the seventh, and
Hideki Matsui
, making his exhibition debut for the Angels, struck out and singled in two at-bats.
ON THE MOUND:
It wasn't a clean inning — he gave up a two-out triple to
Kyle Banks
— but closer
Brian Fuentes
looked a lot sharper during a scoreless fourth than he did in his first outing Friday, when he gave up a run on two hits and a walk against Colorado. His fastball looked firmer, and his location was better.
EXTRA BASES:
Right fielder
Bobby Abreu
was scratched because of nasty weather conditions. It was 51 degrees and windy, and the game was delayed by rain. Abreu's replacement, Ryan, also made a superb diving catch of
Yorvit Torrealba's
liner in the third inning.
UP NEXT:
Top pitching prospect
Trevor Reckling
is scheduled to start Wednesday's noon (PST) game against Cincinnati in Tempe.
ON THE AIR:
TV: FS West; Radio: 830.
