Spring Training Game Recap - 3/10/04


Posted Mar 10, 2004


In today's game there is little good to talk about. However, we will try to look for the positive. It is good that is it is only spring training when the Angels lose and stinks that it is spring training when they win.

On the offense side the Angels managed to only get four hits and score one run. The hits were produced by the major league hitters expected to be in the starting line-up this season. The biggest hit was Guerrero's RBI triple in the thirs that scored Eckstein. The other 3 hits were produced from a trio of hitters Erstad,Salmon and Guillen each got one hit in today's game other than that there was nothing happening on offense.

On the pitching side this game was lost by the major league pitching staff of the Angels. They managed to allow 7 runs into today's game. The stats as follows were Lackey allowing 4 runs on 6 hits in 3 innings with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts. His worst pitch when he allowed a solo homerun to left by former non-hitting Angel Eric Owens. Troy Percival followed Lackey and promptly gave up 2 more runs on 3 hits in just the 4th inning alone. Shields followed Percival and allowed a run on two hits in one inning with one strikeout.

Now the good pitching started in the 6th inning when the Angel minor leaguers took over. Starting with Zamora who allowed no runs on no hits with one walk in one inning of play. He was followed by Steve Green who allowed no runs on one hit and one walk in 2 innings of play. Looks like Steve Green may have finally recovered from his shoulder surgery. He was followed by another outstanding performance from Scott Dunn he allowed 1 hit and got 2 stikeouts in one inning to finish the game for the Angels.

Hitter of the Game: Seattle Mariners DH Edgar Martinez. He had 3 hits in 3 AB's with 3 RBI's and scored a run.

Pitcher of the Game: Seattle Mariners Starting Pitcher Terry Mulholland who allowed one run on 4 hits in three innings of pitching he also had 1 strikeout and 1 walk in the game.
