Zack Cozart leads Angels’ offense in victory over A’s

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Cozart also went to the leadoff spot occupied by Kinsler. He started the game with a triple. He added a two-run double in the sixth. Cozart scored on two of the three hits from Mike Trout. Albert Pujols and René Rivera also had two hits apiece, helping the Angels dash to a 7-0 lead by the sixth.The game got tighter when the A’s finally got to Matt Shoemaker.Shoemaker dominated the A’s for the first five innings, zipping through the lineup twice while allowing just two hits. In the sixth, Shoemaker got two outs before he allowed a walk, a double, a walk and a single.“I get two outs on three pitches and then I four-pitch walk a guy with two outs,” Shoemaker said. “To be honest, that’s atrocious. I have to find a way to refocus and bear down. I thought I was doing that, but I just missed the zone.”The A’s tacked a third run onto Shoemaker’s line with a double against Cam Bedrosian. Relievers José Álvarez, Jim Johnson and Luke Bard combined for the final nine outs, sealing the victory.Johnson struck out Matt Olson with the bases loaded to escape the seventh, leaving the bases loaded.In the ninth, Bard got the ball for his major league debut. A Rule 5 pick, he responded with a scoreless inning.“It was kind of just a blur,” he said. “It was so much fun. A dream come true. It really was.” PreviousLos Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia, left, looks over the shoulder of Zack Cozart, center, as he has his hand examined by a trainer during the ninth inning of a baseball game Oakland Athletics on Saturday, March 31, 2018 in Oakland, Calif.

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)ExpandOAKLAND — As if coming to a new team and a new league aren’t enough of an adjustment for Zack Cozart, he’s done so while adjusting to two new positions.“It’s a little different,” Cozart said. “Usually I just show up to the park and know I’m playing shortstop.”Since the start of his first spring training with the Angels, Cozart has gone to third, then second, then third. Now he’s back to second for at least 10 days because of Ian Kinsler’s injury.Throughout all that, he’s shown no ill effects with his bat, including two more hits in the Angels’ 8-3 victory over the Oakland A’s on Saturday.center_img While it’s a common story for players to have an initial slump with a new team, perhaps feeling the pressure of making a good first impression, Cozart has had no such issues.“You definitely want your teammates to think you are a good player,” Cozart said. “If you just relax and do your thing, I’ve had some experience, hopefully my play will take care of itself.”In his first three games with his new team, Cozart is 5 for 14 with four extra-base hits. By his 11th at-bat, he already had a single, double, triple and homer.Defensively, Cozart has had seemingly little trouble at either of his new positions.“It says a lot about Zack, for his ability and talent,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “He made a great transition to third, and to second he’s making a seamless transition too.”last_img read more
