José Soriano Shines with 6 Scoreless Innings as Mickey Moniak’s 3-Run Homer Propels Angels to 6-0 Victory over Guardians

On Friday night, the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Cleveland Guardians 6-0 thanks to three home runs from Mickey Moniak and six scoreless innings pitched by José Soriano, who earned his first career victory as a starter.

Soriano (1-4), who only made relief appearances the previous season, gave up just five hits. Just once was the right-hander under pressure, as he escaped a jam in the fifth inning by striking out Andrés Giménez with the bases loaded.

Soriano has defeated Cleveland twice in his career.

This season, Cleveland was shut out for the third time. Starting 19-9, the Guardians have lost four of their last five games.

In the first inning, Schanuel battled Bibee for 11 pitches before grounding out. Schanuel has hit safely in 12 of the last 13 games.

In the third inning, he lost patience and pounced on the right-hander’s first pitch to drive in his third. In 27 out of 32 games, the Angels have at least one home run.

Did the Guardians win against the Angels?

The Angels are optimistic that superstar Mike Trout, who underwent successful surgery on his left knee, will return to the field at some point this season.

After Trout underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus, manager Ron Washington quipped that he encouraged the three-time MVP to “enjoy his rehab.”
