Angels belt three homers, take finale vs. Cardinals

Angels, Cardinals

Zach Neto, Nolan Schanuel and Taylor Ward hit solo home runs as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 7-2 on Wednesday in Anaheim, Calif.

Willie Calhoun went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs and an RBI for the Angels, who snapped a three-game losing streak by salvaging the finale of a three-game series.

Los Angeles starting pitcher Griffin Canning (2-4) allowed one run on five hits and three walks in six innings. He struck out five.

Paul Goldschmidt homered for the Cardinals, whose three-game winning ended.

St. Louis starter Lance Lynn (1-2) gave up four runs on eight hits in five innings. He fanned five and walked two.

The Angels broke out to a 4-0 first-inning lead. Schanuel jumped on Lynn’s third pitch of the game for a homer down the right field line.

Luis Guillorme hit a single and scored on Calhoun’s one-out double. Calhoun took third base on a throwing error and scored on Kevin Pillar’s infield single.

Pillar stole second base, moved to third on a flyout and scored on a wild pitch.

Guillorme and Ward singled to open the third inning. After they moved up on a groundout, Lynn hit Pillar with a pitch to load the bases before retiring the next two batters to escape.

Lynn capped his evening by dodging danger again in the fifth inning. Guillorme walked and went to third on Calhoun’s one-out single, but Lynn struck out Pillar and Logan O’Hoppe to end the threat.

Goldschmidt’s leadoff homer in the sixth inning cut the Cardinals’ deficit to 4-1. However, Neto got that run back in the bottom of the inning with his homer off reliever Nick Robertson.

Los Angeles upped its lead to 7-1 in the seventh inning. Ward homered, Calhoun smacked a double, Pillar singled and Mickey Moniak delivered an RBI single.

St. Louis cut the deficit to 7-2 in the eighth when Alec Burleson doubled and scored on Brendan Donovan’s single.
