(AP Photo/Stephen Brashear)ExpandSEATTLE — José Suarez dispatched the Seattle Mariners first three hitters on 16 pitches, sailing with ease through his first major league inning.Then he had to wait a while to pitch his second.The Angels rallied for seven runs in the second, giving Suarez plenty of cushion to pick up his first big league win in the Angels’ 13-3 blowout of the Mariners on Sunday.Albert Pujols hit a three-run homer as part of the second-inning outburst, and the Angels batted around again in the fifth, on their way to a 13-hit day. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “Not always the best conversation when a guy just got his first major league win,” said Manager Brad Ausmus.While Suarez is again a minor leaguer, he certainly demonstrated he has the stuff and the poise to be a part of the Angels’ long-term plan in the majors.Suarez showed a 91-93 mph fastball and a good changeup, which he used frequently.  He threw 32 of them and the Mariners swung and missed at 11 of them.“The swing and misses kind of tell the whole story,” said catcher Dustin Garneau, who had worked with Suarez at Triple-A. “He’s continually going to it and it’s his pitch, but they’re continuously not hitting it, or swinging over it. There’s some action to it and he’s got some deception.”He gave up two runs in the second, on a bloop single, a double, and then two run-scoring groundouts. Kyle Seager then homered in the sixth, ending Suarez’s outing.“After Seager took him deep I said ‘Now you’re officially in the big leagues,’” Pujols said with a smile.Suarez also showed a comfort level that belied the lack of experience in his face, which he said he only needs to shave a couple times a week. Before the game he was lounging in the clubhouse and joking with his teammates.“Yeah, he’s pretty mature,” Garneau said. “There were a couple rough spots where he was wondering what to throw, but that’s going to come with every game. Other than that, he was calm, cool and collected.”Of course, a comfortable lead will make any pitcher more at ease.Related Articles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros center_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter The Angels’ offensive explosion came at the expense of Seattle lefty Marco Gonzales, who has often given the Angels trouble. In fact, the Angels have been one of the worst teams in the majors against lefties this season, but they’ve now won four straight games started by lefties, after losing 14 of the first 18. They’ll face another on Monday, Chicago’s Jon Lester.Besides Pujols’ homer, which was his second in as many days, he also had a two-run double in the fifth, when Mallex Smith lost his fly ball in the sun.Mike Trout and David Fletcher also had three hits apiece. Everyone in the Angels lineup had a hit except for Shohei Ohtani, who reached three times on errors, at least two of which could have been ruled hits.The Angels have won seven of their last nine games to pull to 29-30. Since April 25, the Angels are 1-7 against the Houston Astros and Minnesota Twins and 19-7 against everyone else.“It’s good to be able to turn things around but it’s still a long season,” Pujols said. “You just need to continue to pile up winning series. That’s it.” Luís Rengifo, a 22-year-old rookie, hit his first major league homer, a ball that clanked off the upper deck in right field.All of that provided plenty of support for Suarez, a 21-year-old left-hander. He gave up three runs in 5-2/3 innings in his debut, throwing 88 pitches.“I felt really good,” Suarez said through an interpreter. “I’m really happy with my work. We stuck with the game plan. I didn’t feel as nervous in the bullpen, but once I got out there and saw some of the hitters, it made it more real for me.”One of the Angels’ top pitching prospects, Suarez got the call because the team wanted to give an extra day of rest to the other starters during this stretch of 20 games without a day off.After the game, the Angels sent Suarez back to Triple-A, because they already have five other starters and they will need an extra position player for a National League game on Monday in Chicago.last_img read more

Messi disappears without Cristiano

first_imgIn fact, Messi came from scoring in his last Classics in which he faced Cristiano. He scored two in the league visit to the Bernabéu on 16-17 (2-3, with the final goal of the Argentine in the 92 ‘). In the 2017 Super Cup, he scored in the first leg at Camp Nou (1-3), but not in the lap at the Bernabéu, which curiously, the Portuguese was lost by sanction. In the two league matches he did score a goal in each one: the 0-3 of the Bernabéu (also gave an assist to Aleix Vidal) and the 2-2 of the Camp Nou.Last season, Messi missed the first Classic without a Christian by injury: the 5-1 at the Camp Nou that sentenced Lopetegui. The Argentine did not mark then neither in the semifinals of the Cup nor in the league visit to the Bernabéu. This season the international albiceleste, and Barça, have dismissed the season of Classics garters (they could still be in Champions) without beating Courtois.The nine years in which Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi agreed in the Spain League served to germinate a rivalry that transcended the borders of the championship and reached a global dimension. They took the fight for the League pichichi to levels never seen since the time of Zarra, whose record of 38 goals in one season, dating from 1951, was beaten successively by one and the other (Luis Suarez also got it in 2015 -2016). Now, Messi keeps him in 50 goals (2011-2012 season). And they exercised a tyranny in all the individual awards (Golden Ball, FIFA World Player, The Best) until, with Cristiano in Turin, Modric broke that duopolistic hegemony in 2018. The march of Cristiano Ronaldo has dissipated the presence of Messi in the Classics. The Argentinian He has not scored or assisted in any of the five games against Real Madrid he has played since the Portuguese crack left the white club. 425 minutes without marking or attending the targets. Tampocó scored in the last duel that, even with CR7 in the white ranks, a fact that contrasts with the 21 goals that The flea He made the whites in the 33 games in which he faced Cristiano (who made 18 Barça in the matches in which both coincided).last_img read more
