st the Green Bay Packers, but things shifted
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Cam Bedrosian has the arm and confidence to be a future closer. The bloodlines, too.Just over 34 years after 1987 NL Cy Young Award winner Steve Bedrosian earned his first career save, his son closed out his first game Tuesday night in the Los Angeles Angels 5-4 victory over the Oakland Athletics.With Huston Street placed on the disabled list earlier in the day with a sore right knee, the Angels called on their young right-hander in the ninth. The 24-year-old struck out the side in order.Ive been looking forward to this for a while now, Bedrosian said. Its awesome to get the first one out of the way.In a game where all the runs came via five home runs, the Angels made their two homers matter the most.After Khris Davis and Coco Crisp hit solo home runs off Matt Shoemaker (6-11), the Angels tied it on Jett Bandys two-run homer against Sean Manaea (3-6) in the fifth and then took the lead for good on a three-run homer from Jefry Marte in the sixth.Manaea had posted a 2.65 ERA in six games since coming off the disabled list with a strained left forearm. He pitched 5 2/3 innings and allowed five runs (four earned), six hits and three walks.Early in the game he looked really good, like weve seen him when hes at his best, As manager Bob Melvin said. Other than a couple of pitches, I thought he was pretty consistent.Shoemaker went seven innings for the Angels. He wasnt dominant (six hits, three walks, four strikeouts), but only allowed the two solo home runs. In his last seven starts at home, hes posted a 1.03 ERA.Its home, he said. Fans are on your side. You pitch here more so youre more comfortable here for the most part. You dont know how to explain those things.Davis has 27 homers this season -- already matching his career high set last year with Milwaukee -- and eight since the All-Star break.It seems like hes more and more confident up there as the season goes on, Melvin said. Anytime you switch leagues, theres a little bit of an adjustment period. He struggled a bit early, but since then hes been as good as any power-hitter in the league.Davis was hitting just .214 with eight home runs after the seasons first 35 games, but has hit .275 with 19 home runs since.The As were able to pull within a run in the eighth when Yonder Alonso hit a two-run home run off JC Ramirez, but in the ninth the Angels turned to Bedrosian. He struck out Max Muncy, Crisp and Jed Lowrie to earn the save.Bedrosian has been on an impressive roll prior to Tuesday. He has struck out eight consecutive batters overall and has not allowed a run in his last 25 appearances.Cams been awesome, Street said. Ive been impressed with him all year long. He has a great head on his shoulders and his stuff is obviously there. He has the right mindset and makeup. It was really cool to see him get his first one tonight.The Angels have now won nine of their last 11 games at home. They are 11-6 since the All-Star break.The win pushed the Angels one game ahead of the As in the AL West cellar.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: Melvin said catcher Josh Phegley, on the disabled list since July 2 with a strained right knee, is participating in all baseball drills but still not comfortable going in and out of a crouch. Its the second time this season hes been on the DL with strained right knee.Angels: RHP Mike Morin was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake. Manager Mike Scioscia said he will go with a committee at closer with Street out. Street had an MRI Tuesday that showed no structural damage. He had a cortisone injection.UP NEXTAthletics: RHP Kendall Graveman (7-7) had a career-high winning streak snapped at six games in his last outing against Cleveland. He is 6-1 with a 3.34 ERA over his last 11 starts.Angels: RHP Jered Weaver (8-8) began to salvage an erratic season in July (2-1, 3.57 ERA). He will face the As for the third time this year and is 14-11 with a 2.73 ERA against the As for his career. Kendell Beckwith Buccaneers Jersey.
