Chase Silseth pitched six scoreless innings on his major league debut to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 2-0 win over hosts Oakland A on Friday night.
Silseth, 21, was called up by Double-A Rocket City with the Angels who needed an extra starter ahead of a doubleheader on Saturday. Silseth (1-0), an 11th-round draft pick at the University of Arizona last year, conceded just one hit — a third-inning single from Elvis Andrus.
He walked two and batted four while making 81 pitches before handing the ball over the Angels’ bullpen, completing the shutout. Aaron Loup (seventh inning), Ryan Tepera (eighth), and Raisel Iglesias (ninth inning, eighth save) each pitched a scoreless inning to finish a two-hitter.
A’s starter Daulton Jefferies (1-6) also went six strong innings, but he allowed Brandon Marsh an RBI single and Andrew Velazquez a solo homer, and that was enough for Los Angeles.
Royals 14, Rockies 10
Hunter Dozier had five hits, Andrew Benintendi and Ryan O’Hearn homed, and Kansas City beat Colorado in Denver.
Michael A. Taylor and Benintendi had three hits each, Salvador Perez and Whit Merrifield had two hits each and Dylan Coleman (1-1) threw up an inning of relief to earn the win for the Royals.
Brendan Rodgers homed on his three hits, Sam Hilliard had two hits and also went deep, CJ Cron finished with three hits and Ryan McMahon had two hits for the Rockies.
Brewer 2, Marlin 1
Jace Peterson pulled a full bases walk in the ninth inning – the only free pass of the game – that hit Christian Yelich as Milwaukee defeated hosts Miami.
Peterson drew the four-pitch walk of Anthony Bender, who inherited a bases-loaded no-out jam from fellow assist Tanner Scott (0-1). Josh Hader scored a scoreless ninth place on his 13th save. He’s the first pitcher in major league history to go 13-on-13 for sure shots to start the season.
The Marlins have lost 10 of their last 12 games. Eight of those 10 losses came from just one run. Pablo Lopez posted a career high with 11 strikeouts, including nine on his transfer. He allowed three hits, no walks and one run in seven innings, and his leading major league ERA increased slightly from 1.00 to 1.05.
Seafarers 2, Mets 1
Ty France scored Seattle’s first run and delivered the tie RBI singles in the eighth inning in a win over host New York.
The Mariners, playing at Citi Field for the first time since the park opened in 2009, won for the fourth time in 12 games this month. The Mets, who are yet to lose a series this season, have lost two out of three.
Former Mets pitcher Paul Sewald (2-1), who beat Starling Marte to beach two in the seventh before retiring all three batsmen he faced in the eighth, clinched the win for Seattle. Sewald went 1-14 for New York from 2017-2020 but is 12-4 for Seattle.
