Angels pitchers blank Dodgers in spring training win

The Angels pitchers allowed just three hits in a 6-0 shutout of the Dodgers in game two of the Spring Training Freeway Series.

LOS ANGELES — Reid Detmers, Matt Moore and Jose Suarez shutout the Dodgers in a 6-0 win Monday in game two of the Spring Training Freeway Series at Dodger Stadium.

The trio allowed just three hits and struck out five for the Angels in the win. The Spring Training finale for both teams is set for Tuesday at Angel Stadium.

Detmers threw five shutout innings with three hits, three walks and four strikeouts. The lefty threw 86 pitches and is likely to be the No. 3 starter and pitch Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles.

He had a game-high 12 swings and misses, 9 of them coming off his slider. Detmers had a 2.45 ERA in five Spring Training starts.

Moore threw a shutout inning of relief and Suarez allowed just one baserunner in three innings of clean work. Suarez is out of minor league options and is fighting for one of the final bullpen spots on Thursday’s opening day roster.

If the Angels do not put Suarez on the active roster, he will be designated for assignment and have to clear waivers in order to remain with the club.

The Angels offense had some bright spots Monday as well, notable a 3-run blast from Logan O’Hoppe in the second inning to give the Angels a 3-0 lead.

O’Hoppe’s homer traveled 429 feet and had an exit velocity of 107.8 miles per hour. It was the second home run of the spring for O’Hoppe.

The offense continued in the third inning with a leadoff double from Anthony Rendon which left the bat at 100 miles per hour. He was later driven in on a groundout by Mike Trout to extend the lead to four.

Nolan Schanuel hit a 2-run single for the Angels in the sixth off Daniel Hudson to make the score 6-0.

Chase Silseth will start for the Angels Tuesday against James Paxton for the Dodgers. Silseth has a 1.08 ERA in Spring Training and is expected to land in the Angels rotation.
