Anaheim Angels Team Report - April 23
(Sports Network) - The defending World Champion Anaheim Angels attempt to beat
Roger Clemens and snap the Yankees' six-game winning streak tonight at Edison
Despite out-hitting New York 10-9 yesterday, Anaheim suffered an 8-3 loss.
David Eckstein went 2-for-5 with two RBI for the Angels, who have lost four of
five. Brad Fullmer also had two hits and scored twice in the losing effort.
John Lackey (1-2) got roughed up in his three-plus innings of work to absorb
the loss. He gave up seven runs -- six earned -- on just five hits. He also
walked four and surrendered a home run.
The Angels will send 27-year-old righty Mickey Callaway to the mound this
evening to oppose Clemens. Callaway had his worst outing of the year last week
against Texas, giving up seven hits and six runs over 4 1/3 frames of action.
The hurler struck out five and walked two in the losing effort.
Callaway will be facing the Yankees for the first time in his career.
Anaheim, which has lost six of its last eight games, may have to do without
the services of centerfielder Darin Erstad tonight. Erstad missed his second
straight game on Tuesday with a hamstring injury.
Garret Anderson continues to shine for the Angels, as he is hitting .395 thus
far with a team-high 17 RBI.
