SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Anthony Rendon scored five runs, Max Stacey returned with a stroke and hit an RBI double, as the Los Angeles Angels beat the San Francisco Giants 8-1 on Tuesday night.
With injured slugger Mike Trout sidelined for two months, Rendon’s hot bat matters even more.
He hit a two-run single in the third and ended a 0-for-10 funk and base-loaded double during the fourth of five. He sang the song again in the ninth.
“I never go too high on my highs or too low on my lows,” Rendon said. “I am not one to bang helmets, throw bats, break bats. I don’t want to be that type of person because in that sense more gray hair comes out and then you can’t be a happy hitter.
Lefty Andrew Heaney (3-3) allowed one run on five hits, scored seven and went one of 6 1/3 innings to secure back-to-back wins for the first time this year. He also recorded the third hit of his career.
Donovan Solano’s RBI single in seventh was for San Francisco, going 18–10 in May to take first place in the NL West, then flopping a day later. The Giants had scored several home runs in six straight games.
The Angels challenged starter Alex Wood (5-3), who conceded seven runs on four hits with four walks in 3 2/3 innings and lost his third straight start.
Los Angeles left the Bay Area 3-3, taking a second win against San Francisco to avoid a win in Oakland on Sunday.
“We started 0-2 against two good teams and finished 3-3 on a very rough road trip, you have to give a lot of credit to our guys and a lot of credit to our coaches,” said the manager. Joe Madon said. “It was quite impressive.”
Angels outfielder Justin Upton was out in fourth after a collision with second baseman Kean Wong as he chased down a popup in the shallow left.
Stacey came off the wounded list and made an immediate impact. He was assessed as a precaution by an expert during the recovery process because “it just got to the point where we weren’t sure,” said Madon, who is now working to preserve catcher Kurt Suzuki later in the year. looking forward to.
“He’s feeling really great about himself right now. He’s back, it’s normal Stas,” Madon said of Stacy.
On Saturday against the Cubs, the Giants will feature the Pride colors in the SF logo on their game caps as well as a Pride patch on the right sleeve of their home uniforms – the first major league team to do so.
“Very proud that the San Francisco Giants are taking this step. Very proud to be a part of it,” said manager Gabe Kapler. “We look forward to the impact and support we can provide to the LGBTQ+ community.”
Angels: CF Trout is out of his running boot as he recovers from a strained right calf he injured on May 18 and is expected to be on the sidelines for 6 to 8 weeks. “I think it’s the mental engagement in the fact that it’s off that he’s probably going to feel a little better about himself that he’s able to move around freely and that’s the first step,” Maddon said. “Trust me, he’s inspired to come back.” … RHP Chris Rodriguez threw a “really good” throw in his rehab with Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday, and Madon said he could be recovering from a swollen shoulder during the team’s upcoming homestand which takes place in Seattle on Thursday. will start against. “We are looking to bring him back relatively soon. He is on the verge of coming back here,” Maddon said.

Kapler was unwilling to anticipate how much time the outfielder might miss. … 3b An MRI examination for Evan Longoria showed a slight stretch in the right side and it is increasing day by day. .. C Kurt Casali walked back on the 10-day injured list on Monday with a strained left wrist, although Kapler is expected to resume baseball activities and be stronger soon. … 1b Brandon Belt (left oblique tension) plays catch out to 90 feet, took some dry swings and is running and was ready to start his hitting progress.
The Giants recalled C Chadwick Tromp from Triple-A Sacramento, selected RHP Dominic Lyon from Sacramento, and RHP Nick Tropano for Triple-A. RHP Sam Delaplain has been recalled and placed on a 60-day IL as he works back from Tommy John surgery.
Los Angeles returns home and will start RHP Griffin Canning (4-3, 5.40 ERA) against Seattle on Thursday, while two-way star Shohei Ohtani (1-1, 2.72) gets the ball again on Friday.
