ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Los Angeles rookie Reed Detmers is not scoring in six innings against Tampa Bay.

On Tuesday night, the 22-year-old dropped 64 innings and scored two. “Angels” led 8-0.

Detmers stepped off his first 15 strikers before Taylor Wallace made the lead moves in the sixth. Then Anthony Randon made a good jump to hook Vidal Bruhan’s linear drive, and Kevin Kirmaer moved on to a double play to complete the inning.

Detmers made a good game in defense on the fifth when he quickly captured ground in center Randy Arozarena.

The left-hander is trying to throw a second non-striker mostly this season after five pitchers of the New York Mets merged into one against the Philadelphia Phillies on April 29th. Last season there were a record nine who did not score.

Detmers is starting his 11th career start. He was the 10th overall pick in the 2020 draft from the University of Louisville and made his major league debut last year.

Detmers entered the game with a 2-4 career mark and a 6.33 ERA. He was 1-1 with an 5.32 ERA in his first five starts this season.

This is only the second time Detmers has made at least six innings in the game.

The Angels backed Detmers with 13 hits, including home runs by Mike Trout and Chad Wallach.

The last non-striker for the Angels was in 2019, when Taylor Cole and Felix Peña teamed up against the Seattle Mariners in the team’s first home game since the death of starting pitcher Tyler Skags.
