A night after the Dodgers’ prospect outdueled the Angels’ big league pitcher, this time the Angels prospect outdueled the Dodgers prospect. The 66ers improved to 2-0 with a 3-0 win over the Quakes at the Epicenter on Friday.
Angels No. 23 prospect Donn Roach, a right-hander for the Sixers, pitched seven shutout innings, allowing only four hits, one walk while striking out three.
Dodgers No. 5 prospect Chris Reed, a left-hander for the Quakes, struggled a little early, allowing three runs in the first two innings. He finished with six strikeouts and the three runs allowed in five innings, retiring the final 10 batters he faced.
Angels reliever Bobby Cassevah, out with right shoulder inflammation and on a rehabilitation assignment, walked one and struck out one in the ninth to earn the save. Cassevah is an ex-Quake, pitching for them in 2008.
Travis Witherspoon, C.J. Cron and Randal Grichuk had two hits apiece for the Sixers, who had eight hits. The Quakes managed only five hits. Austin Gallagher, 1 for 3 with a walk, was the only Quake to reach base twice.
