ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Andrew Heaney allowed only three hits over seven innings and the Los Angeles Angels defeated San Diego on Thursday, 2-0, spoiling Mike Clevinger’s debut with the Padres.
With most of the attention focused on Clevinger, who was acquired in a multiplayer deal with Cleveland before Monday’s trade deadline, it was Heaney who ended up pitching a gem.
The right-hander struck out six and walked two while throwing a career-high 117 pitches. Clevinger didn’t have a sharp outing against the Angels, who drafted him in 2011 before trading him to the Indians three years later.
He came in with a 4-0 career mark against the Angels, and allowed two runs on seven hits in six innings.
