Spring Training Game Recap - 3/7/04

Posted Mar 7, 2004

The Angels took the lead early in this game. In fact the first batter David Eckstein crushed a solo homerun to get the Angels on the board. The Angels made this game look easy compared to the thrashing they suffered in the previous game.

Eric Aybar, one of the Angels minor league shortstop prospects finished up the game at shortstop for David Eckstein by going 1 for 2 at the plate. Barry Wesson had a 2 for 2 game while scoring two runs. Jarred Abruzo another Angels catching prospect had a 2 for 3 game with 2 RBI's. Also, Gary Johnson went 1 for 1 at the plate with a RBI. On the mound for the Angels it was a quiet game compared to the day before. First off Aaron Sele allowed one run on three hits with a strikeout in 2 innings pitched. He was followed by Troy Percival who contributed with a perfect inning including one strikeout. Brendan Donnelly allowed a run in one inning but did manage to get a strikeout on all three outs he recorded. The rest of the pitching was done by two of the Angels better pitching prospects. First was Bobby Jenks who got the win with three scoreless innings while allowing a hit and a walk. Then Steve Green finished the game and recorded his first save of the spring with two scoreless innings while allowing a hit and a walk. He also had 2 strikeouts. Overall it was a good game for the Angels and their pitchers. Especially after Saturday's crazy game.
