Angels can’t hold 9th-inning lead, lose to the Yankees in 10

first_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Mike Trout, with bat and glove, helps Angels end losing streak Heaney had allowed 11 runs in his first two games, but this time he moved back to the first base side of the rubber, which he said is always more comfortable for him. He had been pitching from that side before he got hurt in spring training.He said moving back to the third base side for his first two starts was part of “a constant game of adjustments.” Clearly, the results favor him on the first base side.Calling this game “something for me personally to build on,” Heaney was one of several Angels whose performances were positive.They ended up losing because Middleton had a tough ninth and Parker’s rough season continued with a mistake in the 10th.“I’m just trying to get something to build off every outing, and then you go out and give up a go-ahead homer,” Parker said. “It kind of stinks. But we’ve been playing well as a team. We’ll bounce back and come get after it.” Clippers, Mavericks brace for the unknown in Game 4 Gregorius’ run was charged to Heaney, who had pitched the best of his three games this season. Heaney struck out nine and allowed only two runs (one earned).Related Articles The Ohtani injury, assuming it isn’t serious, was a blemish on what was shaping up to be a great night for the Angels.Ohtani had started things off with a laser of a homer, turning a 97 mph fastball from Luis Severino into a 112 mph line drive into the right-field seats. It was his fourth homer of the year. Besides that, Kole Calhoun, who had been in a 1-for-29 rut, made two spectacular defensive plays. Andrelton Simmons had a two-out, two-run triple to give the Angels the lead in the seventh. Heaney struck out nine in his best outing of the young season. Justin Anderson preserved the lead by going through the heart of the Yankees order in his third big league game.With all of those positives, perhaps none was bigger than the performance of Calhoun, who has endured a frustrating stretch at the plate.In the third inning, Gleyber Torres hit a line drive to right and Calhoun made a spectacular diving catch going toward the gap. He punctuated it with an emphatic fist pump as he popped up from the turf.Three innings later, the Yankees had runners at second and third with one out when Neil Walker hit a drive to deep right field. Calhoun leaped at the fence, snagging the ball with his glove above the yellow line, which was added this year to lower the height a ball needs to clear to be a home run.Calhoun said he wasn’t even sure he caught it until he saw the ball in his glove. He then fired it to second, unaware that Giancarlo Stanton might have left early while tagging up. An alert Simmons stepped on the bag, and the umpires ruled that Stanton had left early. Although the Angels recorded the third out on the double play, it was after Gregorius had scored from third, so his run counted to put the Yankees ahead 2-1.center_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Middleton issued a leadoff walk to Gary Sanchez. He then gave up a one-out double to Miguel Andujar and then a game-tying sacrifice fly to pinch-hitter Brett Gardner.In the 10th, Blake Parker gave up a homer to Didi Gregorius, who tied Mike Trout for the major-league lead with his 10th homer.As if that wasn’t bad enough, the Angels also had to pull Shohei Ohtani from the game after he suffered a mild left ankle sprain. He had awkwardly avoided a collision at first on a groundout.Ohtani was listed as day to day. He was expected to DH again on Saturday – against Masahiro Tanaka – and start on the mound on Tuesday.After the game, Manager Mike Scioscia didn’t have much more information, saying they would simply evaluate it every day. He said he was hoping Ohtani could still pitch on Tuesday.

It just kind of fell apart late, but that’s baseball.”Taking a one-run lead into the ninth, Keynan Middleton suffered his first blown save in seven tries since he became the closer.
