ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) cheap Andrew Heaney jersey had to make a pit stop in the dugout after throwing his first pitch of the second inning because his nose was bleeding.
The Los Angeles Angels jerseys’ left hander got back on the mound and seemed fine, once some gauze was placed in his left nostril by trainer Adam Nevala.
But then cheap Matt Szczur jersey homered on the first pitch of the third. And by the time Heaney could stop the bleeding against a tough Chicago Cubs jerseys lineup, they had put four runs across and were on their way to a 6 1 victory Tuesday night.
“I just got a little bit of a bloody nose, threw a pitch and it spewed down my shirt,” Heaney said. “Then I got it on my other sleeve and down my arm, so I figured I should probably say something.”
“It’s frustrating,” said Healey, who gave up seven hits over six innings with seven strikeouts and no walks. “I think I just tried to nibble a little too much. I just kind of got myself into some bad counts. And whenever I was in good counts, I didn’t make good pitches to put guys away. So, I tried to rectify the situation but at that point, it was a little too late. I had already given up four runs.”
The Angels jerseys were outscored 15 1 during this two game set, which began with cheap Garrett Richards jersey’ 9 0 loss to cheap mlb jerseys NL Cy Young Award winner cheap Jake Arrieta jersey. It’s the first time the Cubs jerseys have started a season 2 0 since 1995.
“It’s two losses. That’s it. It doesn’t count as three losses if we lost by a bunch of runs,” Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said. “We just didn’t do anything in the batter’s box these last two games.
“If you look up the definition of a small sample in the dictionary, you’re going to find these two games are a small sample,” Scioscia added. “We didn’t give ourselves much of a chance on the offensive side, and we didn’t get as much done on the mound as we needed to.”
Cubs jerseys leadoff batter cheap Dexter Fowler jersey made it 6 1 in the seventh, hitting a 3 0 pitch from cheap Mike Morin jersey for a two run shot to right, his first homer in 40 career at bats at Angel Stadium.
cheap Jon Lester jersey (1 0) pitched seven strong innings for the Cubs jerseys in his season debut, allowing a run and four hits.
The three time All Star, who broke Ken Holtzman’s 1970 Cubs jerseys record for strikeouts by a left hander with 207 last season, fanned four and walked none in his 12th career start against the Angels jerseys.
Lester is in the second season of a $155 million, six year contract. Last year, his first in the National League, he was 11 12 with a 3.34 ERA in 32 starts.
“Villanova won the national championship, so I thought he was a good bet today,” Cubs jerseys manager Joe Maddon said. “I just thought it was like absolutely poetic justice, wasn’t it? They won, then he comes up and gets that hit pretty good night for the ‘Cats.”Angels jerseys: RHP cheap Jered Weaver jersey, whose streak of six consecutive opening day starts ended on Monday night because of nerve problems in his neck and shoulder, threw about 60 pitches during a four inning simulated game. “I thought he made progress, for sure,” Scioscia said. “As he got into his second inning, we saw his velocity start to pick up and I think he threw the ball well. So that’s a good sign. The next step for Jered if he comes out of this OK is a major league game.”
