Sandoval vs Cease
Sandoval has allowed just two unearned runs in 15 innings in his first three starts of the season. He pitched seven shutout innings to beat the Cleveland Guardians last Tuesday at home, giving up two hits while striking out nine and walking one.
Patrick Sandoval is the first traditional starter in #Angels history to not allow an earned run in each of his first three starts in a season.

Sandoval took the loss in his only career start against the White Sox as he surrendered three runs in 4.1 innings. This will be his first outing at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Sandoval’s lone road start of 2022 came April 19 when he allowed one run in four innings in a no-decision against the Houston Astros. That is also his only start in a day game.
Cease (2-1, 3.27) has allowed six runs in 11.1 innings in his last two starts after giving up two runs in 10.2 innings in his first two outings of the season. He had a no-decision against the visiting Kansas City Royals last Wednesday, pitching six innings and giving up two runs, three hits and two walks while striking out nine.

In three career starts against the Angels, Cease is 0-1 with a 6.23 ERA. He is 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA in two home starts this season and 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA in three starts in the day.
Cease is presently the third choice in the AL Cy Young odds at + 1000.
Angels shortstop David Fletcher is 1 for 6 against Cease but has walked twice.

Andrew Velasquez and Jo Adell each hit RBI doubles for the Angels. Taylor Ward had two hits.
