Hermosillo shines in Angels' loss to Cubs

MESA, Ari — Ottawa's Michael Hermosillo had perhaps his best all-around game of the spring for the Los Angeles Angels against the Chicago Cubs on Friday at Sloan Park, but that wasn't enough to get the visitors a win.

Hermosillo, starting in center field for the Angels, went 1-for-2 with two stolen bases, a run scored and was credited with an outfield assist, all in a 6-1 loss to the North Siders.
The Ottawa High School graduate singled in his only try against Cubs starter and winning pitcher Jon Lester. In the sixth inning, he was hit by a pitch by reliever Brandon Morrow, then stole second and third and crossed the plate on a sacrifice fly by teammate Luis Valbuena.
In the field, Hermosillo threw out Cubs pinch runner Jesse Hodges with a strike to catcher Francisco Arcia in the seventh inning.
Kyle Schwarber and David Bote both homered for the Cubs.
San Diego ace Clayton Richard allowed two hits in four innings and Corey Spangenberg had three hits. Chicago's Carson Fulmer gave up two runs and four hits in three innings.
Houston right-hander Justin Verlander struck out eight in five innings. He allowed one run on Paul DeJong's second-inning homer.
Miles Mikolas pitched four scoreless innings for St. Louis.
