For three days in a row, the Angels have combined a stellar starting lineup with a strong offense for dominance the New York Yankees.
It was jug Chase SilsethNow it’s his turn to start for the Angels and will be called up again before then 7-3 win over the Yankees on Wednesday. The Angels improved to 49-48 after beating the Yankees.
Silseth hit 5 ⅔ innings and shut out the Yankees through five until Giancarlo Stanton hit the back with a solo home run and started the sixth inning. It was the only run he gave up in the four hits and two batters he completed in the game. Silseth followed suit by hitting his next two batsmen for a career-high 10 strikeouts in his outing.
He was picked for José Soriano to reach the final from sixth, having already thrown 85 shots. Silseth last threw in Triple A on July 5, so it’s been two weeks since he last threw. When he was last with the Angels, he also switched back to the back-up role.
Soriano gave up a run after hitting a hitter and giving up two singles. He went through bases with a full load but escaped the backlog by knocking out Oswaldo Peraza to get out of the inning. Matt Moore also conceded a solo home run against Franchy Cordero in the eighth.
The Angels’ offense scored their first four runs in the first two innings on two-run homers, the first hit by Taylor Ward and the second by Luis Rengifo. They added two more runs in the third through RBIs from Eduardo Escobar and Mickey Moniak. Ward also hit a ground rule double to add another run late in the eighth.
Jacob Webb and Aaron Loup were scoreless in the seventh and ninth innings.
