Giant pitchers silence Angels-in-waiting
Jonathan Sanchez had another solid spring outing and the Giants posted another win, shutting out the Los Angeles Angels 4-0 on Thursday.
With the win, the Giants improved to 17-5 in the spring.
Sanchez gave up just one hit and one walk in six innings. He struck out five.
Four pitchers combined on a two-hit shutout. So while the effort added to the Giants’ impressive spring pitching, it must be taken with a grain of salt.
The lineup the Angels ran out against the Giants was devoid of regular starters. Center fielder Peter Bourjos was the only Angels regular in the lineup.
Pablo Sandoval was 2 for 4 with a double, run and RBI. Pat Burrell had a double in three at-bats.
The Giants scored three runs in the fourth inning off Angels starter Dan Haren.
After Andres Torres was hit by a pitch, Torres scored on Sandoval’s double. Miguel Tejada singled Sandoval home, and Tejada scored on Burrell’s double.
