Angels Dim Cubs Under the Lights at Diablo

Anthony Scull drilled a solo HR and a single, Luis Eduardo Rodriguez belted two triples, scored a run, and drove-in another, and SP Carson Fulmer and five relievers combined to spin a three-hitter, helping the Angels defeat the Cubs 7-3 in a Cactus League Extended Spring Training game played Monday evening at Tempe Diablo Stadium in Tempe, AZ.

Jefferson Rojas ripped a monster two-run HR high over the LF fence and onto Westcourt Way to account for two of the three Cub runs (the other run scored as the result of a bases loaded HBP). The Cubs also stole six bases. 

The games was called after eight innings of play. 

This was the first night game played by the EXST Cubs this season, as the youngsters prepare for the start of the ACL season next Monday (the vast majority of ACL games are played at night). 

With Monday night's blast, Jefferson Rojas is now tied for the EXST Cubs team lead in HR with Anderson Suriel (both have hit four), in addition to leading the team in hits, RBI, RUNS, and SB. He is also second on the team in doubles.

J. Rojas plays primarily shortstop (he has played 19 games at SS, four games at 2B, and four games at 3B, plus five games as a DH and one as a PH), and he has committed just two errors in the field (both throwing errors), none since April 25th. 

Rojas is projected to be one of the top three prospects in the ACL in 2023, along with C Ethan Salas (SD) and OF Josue de Paula (LAD).   

Here is the abridged box score from Monday night's game (Cubs players only):  

1a. Ismael Mena, CF: 0-2 (BB, K, 4-6 FC, R, SB) 
1b. Alexis Hernandez, PH-SS: 0-2 (K, L-8)
2a. Jefferson Rojas, SS: 1-3 (F-8, 6-3, HR, R, 2 RBI)
2b. Frank Hernandez, PH-LF: 0-1 (4-3, BB, SB)
3. Ed Howard, 3B: 0-4 (6-3, 4-3, K, BB, L-8)
4a. Adan Sanchez, C: 0-3 (E-6, L-8, K)
4b. Jairo Diaz, C: 0-1 (K) 
5a. Anderson Suriel, 1B: 0-1 (3-U, BB, SB)
5b. Dilan Granadillo, PH-DH: 0-1 (BB, K, R)
6a. Christopher Paciolla, 2B: 0-1 (BB, K, CS)
6b. Geuri Lubo, PH-2B: 1-1 (BB, 1B)
7. Wally Soto, DH-1B: 0-1 (BB, BB, HBP, F-8)
8. Brayan Altuve, LF-CF: 0-4 (F-9 DP, K, K, 1-3)
9a. Christian Olivo, RF: 1-1 (BB, 1B, SB) 
9b. Ke'Shun Collier, PH-RF: 0-0 (HBP, BB, RBI, 2 SB)

1. Mason McGwire: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R (0 ER), 3 BB, 2 K, 1 WP, 1 GIDP, 6/2 GO/AO, 45 pitches (23 strikes) 
2. Eligio Paredes: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 1 K, 1 PO, 4/1 GO/AO, 38 pitches (17 strikes) 
3. Mathew Peters: 0.0 IP, 2 H, 4 R (4 ER), 2 BB, 0 K, 1 HBP, 1 HR, 2 WP, 23 pitches (5 strikes) 
4. Luis A. Reyes: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 1/2 GO/AO, 17 pitches (9 strikes)
5. Gabriel Agrazal: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 0/2 GO/AO, 11 pitches (9 strikes) 

RF Christian Olivo: E-9 (fielding miscue after line drive single allowed batter and two runners to score -- the proverbial "Little League Home Run") 

1. Adan Sanchez: 0-2 CS, 1 PB 
2. Jairo Diaz: 1 PB 

WEATHER: Clear with temperatures in the 90's

Thanks Phil!

Do you see anyone being promoted from EXST by the time ACL starts (like Suriel), or do you see that potentially happening more sometime during the ACL season?

    Things I've been wrong about:

    -Tauchman is fine as a 4th OF. I knew that. I just want a better LH DH option and he was really the DH for us until Seiya got hurt. I'm glad Mervis is getting a chance at it. Caissie is coming for that job for sure. But Tauchman continues to be highly useful as a 4th OF with Seiya being hurt

    -I wanted Yency to go to get guys at Iowa a chance. Guys like Palencia and Sanders or RileyT. Maybe even Hodge! But Yency has been better the last two plus weeks. He did hit 96 the other day. He was 93 in Texas to open the season.

    -Leiter has his split working enough. It just needs to stay there

    -I was surprised Jed picked Wisdom over Cooper. I wonder if this happens if Seiya wasn't hurt. Wisdom has more power. Cooper is the better hitter. Jed picked Wisdom and Wisdom had an option left as well.

    -Palencia just doesn't miss enough bats. Similar to ManRod, just two yrs younger. ManRod is killing AAA for TB right now!

    Things I got right so far:

    -Hendricks. Sorry Kyle. You got paid though!

    Jed, you missed there.

    -Smyly. If Jed could've traded him before or during ST, then he should have and saved some cash.

    -Mastro.  Not a LH DH. Pinch runner. Defensive utility. Maybe he's better than Madrigal but didn't get a legit chance to prove it.

    -Luke Little is good. He's had one bad outing. That's it. Needs to get better entering with guys on base. But he needs to stay in MLB.

    -Oh yeah....Morel is doing fine at 3B! He'll get better as well!!

    bellinger "right rib contusion"

  • Childersb3 (view)

    South Bend just lost the lead in the bottom of the 9th on the weirdest scenario, ever.

    It's absolutely pouring on 1st and 2nd, 1out....JPatterson asks for a new ball, but no time out was called....he throws the old ball toward the dugout (not sure if it rolled out of play).....the ump declares the runners get two bases each so one run scores. Then a single up the middle ties the game.

    The rain was coming down in buckets at this point.

    Just weird

  • crunch (view)

    ...and bellinger is gone in the 7th because of that 2nd blown chance and the wall he bounced off of...

    hopefully his rib cage/shoulder feels better tomorrow, we just got happ back.

    Any thoughts on Y. Rojas' stuff and Y. Melendez's game (I believe I've asked about him before, sorry)?

  • crunch (view)

    wow, things are moving fast.  hopefully it continues.

  • crunch (view)

    morel with 4 clean plays in 4 innings...showed off his 100000000mph arm a couple times.

    cody bellinger not having a good 4th, though...5 run leads are handy when your CF is making your pitcher have a 5-out inning.  2nd blown chance was ruled a hit even though it went in/out of his glove...1st was lost in the lights, also ruled a hit.

    welcome back happ!  double off the wall 1st PA back.

    oh yeah, totally, i was just chiming about why i fan like i fan.

    i would like nothing more than hendricks to keep on hendricks'ing.  guys with his stuff can throw for a long, long time as long as it works.

    he velocity is actually up a minor amount this year.  it's really "damn" when a guy like him not only has gas in the tank, but it's looking like it was years ago.  he added a curve a few years ago and it helped a little bit, but he's throwing it less and less while the fb/change combo are less effective.

    CRUNCH—There is no one person in this community I’m talking about.  My remarks were not directed at you or anyone, but at a tone I’ve noticed lately. 

    You have a great, dry sense of humor and there is thought behind your comments.   You and I don’t always agree but I always understand your position.  

    Lastly, and I’ll be quiet, I agree with you on Hendricks.  We can dislike the recent performance but still love the guy.  Lots of questions about his future.
