Shoemaker (3-2) allowed four runs in the first two frames, including a two-run homer by Jose Abreu in the first, but nothing after that as he went 6 1/3 innings and struck out a season-high nine.

“Really, no big adjustments,” Shoemaker said. “Just staying aggressive, attacking the zone. You’ve just got to go out there and keep pitching, keep trying to get outs and put up zeros, and then your team picks you up, which is great.”

Said Angels manager Mike Scioscia: “He had to earn every out. He made some pitches when he had to, got some big strikeouts when he had to. That lineup over there, they’ve got some guys that are swinging the bat as well as anyone in the league. He got into the seventh inning, which is a good sign.”

The night didn’t go as smoothly on the mound for the White Sox. Starter Miguel

“Guys are not swinging at my pitches,” Gonzalez said. “They’re being a little more patient, and I’m falling behind. If we can fix that, then we’ll be OK. Things will change.”

Chicago starters are now 0-8 with a 6.36 ERA over the last 11 games, with opponents hitting .294 over that span. But it didn’t get any easier for the bullpen.

Anthony Swarzak relieved Gonzalez and took a streak of 19 2/3 scoreless innings to the mound, but consecutive singles by Maldonado and Cameron Maybin

“I don’t care what kind of year you’re having, what streak is going on or whatever,” Swarzak said. “If you’re giving up three consecutive hits to three consecutive batters, that’s an issue.”

Maldonado picked up his third RBI of the game with a single in the seventh in yet another four-run outburst for the Angels, who held off a late charge by the White Sox to climb above .500 for the first time since May 3.

“The character of this club is unbelievable,” Shoemaker said. “Great clubhouse,

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED

SWARZAK’S RUN ENDS
Swarzak’s run of excellence, bordering on mind-boggling, came to a temporary end in the sixth inning when the right-hander allowed three runs on three hits. Entering the night, Swarzak had allowed two hits and one walk in his last 50 batters faced and had a scoreless streak of 19 2/3 innings come to an end. He was the only pitcher remaining the Majors to work 19-plus innings without allowing a run in 2017.

QUOTABLE
“He got a little tight on the ball he hit to the wall in right-center [in the fifth inning]. Running, he felt OK. In the [sixth], he was a little tight so we took him out as a precaution. Right now, it’s day to day.” — Scioscia, on pinch-running for Pujols after he walked in the sixth inning

“We’ve lost 14 of the last 15 here? I wasn’t aware of that. OK. I don’t know. I’ll have to think about that a little.” — White Sox manager Rick Renteria, on Chicago’s struggles in Anaheim

Custom Reds Jersey Feldman honored to start Opening Day

Scott Feldman has started on Opening Day for the Rangers (2010) and Astros (’14). Especially in Cincinnati, the veteran right-hander is aware of what it means.

“Opening Day is just a special day,” said Feldman, who will face the Phillies and Jeremy Hellickson on April 3 at Great American Ball Park. “It’s something when Custom Reds Jersey you’re a little kid, I know I spent the whole offseason looking forward to watching that first game. I’m sure there are plenty of fans in Cincinnati doing the same thing. For players, it’s a very exciting time. It’s something I’m really looking forward to.”

In those two previous openers, Feldman was 1-0 with a 1.98 ERA. His team won
Men’s Cincinnati Reds Authentic Personalized Name and Number Home White Baseball Jersey both games.

The Reds signed Feldman on Jan. 26 to a one-year, $2.3 million contract, with an additional $2.2 million in incentives. At the time, it was uncertain whether he would wind up in the rotation or bullpen. Once Homer Bailey was injured before camp, Feldman was viewed as a No. 3 or 4 starter. After Anthony DeSclafani hurt
Personalized Cincinnati Reds Jersey his elbow, and only Feldman and Brandon Finnegan were locked into the rotation starters, the options for Opening Day became pretty clear. The Reds went with Feldman’s experience.

Feldman was 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA in five spring starts.

Last season for Houston, Feldman made five starts before he was moved into the bullpen. His main numbers were respectable — a 1-2 record and 3.65 ERA — but a deeper dive showed some struggles. In those 24 2/3 innings, he walked 11 and
Replica Shirts struck out 15 and his WHIP was 1.62. Opposing hitters batted .290 with a .310 average on balls in play.

Overall for the Astros, Feldman had a 2.90 ERA in 26 games. He was moved at the Trade Deadline to the Blue Jays and struggled in their bullpen, recording an 8.40 ERA in 14 appearances.

This spring, Feldman made it a point to improve his changeup. Last season, it was a pitch he used only 15 times — according to Statcast™.

“I think, as far as projects go over the years with my changeup, I would say this is the best that it’s gone,” Feldman said. “I feel like I can throw it and bring it into a Major League game and not be embarrassed to throw it. Hopefully I can get some outs, because I got some outs with it down here in Arizona.”

In his final spring tune-up, Feldman used the changeup 10 times, he estimated.

“I just think it will hopefully help me and keep my pitch count down,” he said.
Authentic MLB Gears “Any time you can add a pitch, it should be a benefit. Something you can control and throw for strikes.”

After pitching on Tuesday, Feldman will have an extra day of rest before facing the Phillies. He will use the time to prepare for his opponent, but also tackle the tasks of being in a new city and surroundings.

“I’ll get my apartment set up in Cincinnati,” he said. “In between starts, I will try to recover as much as possible and get ready for the next start. I’ll start looking at the projected lineup for the Phillies, go over some video and do my normal routine as I would if it were my 10th start of the year or 20th start of the year.”

Yankees on verge of acquiring Wells from Angels.Customized Cincinnati Reds Jersey

The Yankees may not have seen much of Vernon Wells over the last few seasons, but as they eye an Opening Day lineup that suddenly seems lacking in star power, they’re ready to give him much more of a look.

The Yankees and Angels are closing in on a deal that will fit the 34-year-old outfielder for pinstripes, sources have confirmed to MLB.com, and the trade could be completed as soon as Sunday evening.

The transaction will involve the Angels taking on a large majority of the $42 million Wells is owed through the 2014 season, which is a matter still under discussion between the clubs.Custom Reds Jersey.

ESPN reported that the Yankees’ share of the contract will be approximately $13 million over the next two seasons. Customized Cincinnati Reds Jersey. The Yankees are expected to only surrender a low-level Minor League player in exchange.

“I’m not at liberty to have any conversations publicly about it yet, but I know what you’re asking,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. “There’s a lot of I’s to dot and T’s to cross to get to a finish line when you’re doing something.”

Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto confirmed that the two sides are talking, but declined to go into detail.

Wells has a full no-trade clause, but was coming into the season as the Angels’ fifth outfielder behind Mike Trout, Peter Bourjos, Josh Hamilton and designated hitter Mark Trumbo.

He grinned and said, “Possibly,” when reporters in Tempe, Ariz., asked him if he had approved a trade.Stitched on Customized Reds Jersey.

“It’d be a huge change,” Wells said of joining the Yankees. “I don’t think it’s ever easy saying goodbye, but at the same time, if this were to happen, it’s a good group of guys over there. I’ll just get to know a new family.”

The Yankees suddenly find themselves in a position to offer Wells a healthy amount of at-bats, at least early in the upcoming season. Customized Cincinnati Reds Jersey.Curtis Granderson is not expected to play until early May because of a fractured right forearm, and the Yankees have been looking for a right-handed outfield bat for some time.

Juan Rivera, considered a leading contender for that right-handed outfield job, might now be the regular first baseman with Mark Teixeira lost to a strained right forearm until at least the middle of May.

The Yankees signed Ben Francisco to a Minor League deal after he was cut loose by the Indians this month, but Francisco — as well as Brennan Boesch, a lefty-hitting outfielder who was released by the Tigers — can be sent to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre by the Yankees.

Wells has enjoyed a nice spring with the Angels, batting .361 (13-for-36) with four homers and 11 RBIs, and several Yankees seemed excited about the prospect of his addition.

“He’s a veteran, a leader, a good guy who’s got power and can play the outfield real well,” Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis said. “I’ve always respected Vernon as a player. It’d be great. I never complain about getting guys on a team. I always find good things guys can do on a team. If he were to come here, I bet he’d do a good job helping us try to win.”

Teixeira took to Twitter to voice his support of the trade, writing, “Vernon Wells joining the #Yankees? Great guy who will be a big addition to our club.”

Wells, who plans to retire after the 2014 season, had been accepting of his limited role this spring with the Angels and said he still has something to offer a big league lineup.

“My offseason was geared towards getting back to what I’m capable of doing,” Wells said Sunday. “That was my goal coming into spring — the work I put in the offseason, the work I’ve been doing in Spring Training was to get my swing back to where it’s supposed to be. That’s short and through the ball. When I can do that, I can still put up the numbers that I’m supposed to be putting up.”

With the Blue Jays from 2002-10, Wells posted a .279/.330/.478 slash line, won three Gold Gloves and made three All-Star teams.Personalized Reds Jersey. But he hasn’t been able to duplicate that success since coming to Anaheim in a January 2011 deal that saw the Angels send Rivera and Mike Napoli to Toronto while picking up $81 million of the $86 million owed to Wells.

Wells hit 25 homers in 2011, but posted the lowest batting average (.218) and on-base percentage (.248) in the Majors. He batted .244 with six homers in the first two months of 2012, then missed the next two months with thumb surgery and, with Trout producing, hardly played the rest of the way.

“We haven’t seen him a lot the last two years, just because he was hurt some, and we don’t see the Los Angeles Angels much,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “I know when he was in our division, he was a very good player. A very good player.”
