first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisTo say thank you to donors for ‘Giving Tuesday,’ kids at the Boys and Girls Club of Alpena served up some silly string.For the first time ever, Executive Director, Brad Somers allowed over 60 kids to participate after reaching their donation goals.“Our goal was $1,000 and we were able to raise $8,400 this year.

We’ve struggled against left-handed pitching for sure.”Gonzales retired the first 10 hitters of the game before Andrelton Simmons hit a line drive that deflected off the pitcher, for the Angels’ first hit. Mike Trout followed with a bloop single.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.With two on and one out, the Angels had a threat. But Justin Upton was called out on strikes and Albert Pujols grounded out.The Angels hit four balls with exit velocities over 100 mph against Gonzales, and they were all outs. In the seventh, Upton hit a ball 109.8 mph right at shortstop Jean Segura, and then Pujols hit one 102.1 mph to right field. Angels starter Jaime Barría wasn’t at his best, but still gave up just three runs in five-plus innings.All the damage came in a short stretch in the third and fourth innings.Barría had retired the first eight hitters before left a fastball over the middle that David Freitas belted just over the fence in right center. Trout leaped at the fence and nearly robbed the homer, but the ball ticked off the end of his glove. An inning later, Barría gave up a two-run single to Nelson Cruz.Barría got out of that inning with a double play and then he worked a scoreless fifth, with three strikeouts, before getting chased after allowing the first two hitters to reach base in the sixth.Related Articles PreviousThe Los Angeles Angels Mike Trout jogs to the dugout after lining out to center fir the last out of the game against the Seattle Mariners in Anaheim on Wednesday, July 11, 2018.
