Patrick Sandoval ‘Battled,’ But Felt He Got ‘Lucky’ Against Mariners

Patrick Sandoval has been one of the more solid starters for the Los Angeles Angels this season. He showed it against the Seattle Mariners on Friday. It wasn’t a perfect outing for the 25-year-old lefty, but his 5.1 scoreless innings provided the Angels with a bridge to the ninth until Jesse Chavez gave up three runs and erased Sandoval from the decision.

Angels' Patrick Sandoval: Fires 5.1 scoreless frames

Sandoval registered a no-decision during Friday's 4-3 win against Seattle, allowing three hits and four walks with five strikeouts in 5.1 scoreless innings. Sandoval put multiple runners on in four of his six innings but prevented any Mariner from passing second base and ultimately finished without allowing an earned run for the first time since his first three starts of the season. Control remains an issue for the 25-year-old as the four free passes tie a season high and he's now walked multiple batters in 11 straight starts. Sandoval carries a 3.41 ERA and 1.47 WHIP into his next start, scheduled for midweek against Minnesota.

Angels' Patrick Sandoval: Decent in loss

Sandoval (3-7) took the loss Friday versus the Rangers. He allowed two runs on four hits, two walks and a hit batter with six strikeouts in 5.2 innings. Sandoval will be glad to put July behind him, as he went 0-5 with 17 runs allowed in 24.2 innings on the month, though he did add 32 strikeouts. Both runs against him Friday came in the sixth inning. The southpaw's slump has left him with a 3.61 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 97:41 K:BB in 89.2 innings through 17 starts overall. Sandoval will look to get back on track in August, beginning with a projected road start versus the Mariners.

Angels' Patrick Sandoval: Strikes out ten batters in loss

Sandoval (3-4) took the loss against the Orioles on Saturday, allowing one run on five hits while striking out ten and walking two over 6.1 innings. Sandoval did everything he could to keep the Angels in the game, but his offense gave him no support and he took the loss Saturday. He did earn a quality start, his seventh of the year. The lefty threw 61 of 95 pitches for strikes in the game. This comes one game after allowing five runs in five innings, so it appears that Sandoval is back on track. He will take a 2.95 ERA into his next outing.

Angels' Patrick Sandoval: Fans nine but takes loss

Sandoval (3-3) took the loss against Houston on Saturday, allowing five runs on eight hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out nine batters. Sandoval had his swing-and-miss stuff working in the contest, as he racked up 18 whiffs and tied a season high with nine strikeouts. However, Houston got to him for five runs in the first two innings, creating a deficit that the Los Angeles offense couldn't overcome. To Sandoval's credit, he hung around for five frames and allowed only two hits over his final three innings, but the early damage resulted in his third loss of the campaign. This was the second time that the left-hander has allowed five earned runs in a game this season, but he's been good overall with a 3.09 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 74 strikeouts over 70 innings. His biggest issue has been walks -- his 4.1 BB/9 ranks in the bottom 10 percent among pitchers who have tossed at least 50 innings.

Angels' Patrick Sandoval: Limits damage in no-decision

Sandoval allowed a run on eight hits and two walks with six strikeouts in five innings, taking a no-decision versus the Mariners on Saturday. Sandoval let the second batter of the game, Julio Rodriguez, hit a solo home run, and that accounted for all of the damage on the southpaw's line. The 25-year-old was able to pitch around the other nine baserunners, throwing 62 of 95 pitches for strikes in a solid outing. Sandoval's submitted four straight starts where he's allowed two or fewer runs, lowering his season ERA to 2.63. He's added a 1.37 WHIP and 65:30 K:BB across 65 innings in 12 starts. He's projected for a tougher road start versus the Astros next weekend.
