The Angels would answer in the bottom half of the 1st off Phillies starter Shane McDonald with lead off hitter Ryan Martinez reaching on an error and coming in to score on a Derwin Aguon single.  Nathan Cruz would cap the rally with a two out two rbi single to even the score 3-3.

The Angels offense kept the pressure on in the bottom of the 3rd inning with McDonald htting Alejandro Diaz to start off the inning.  Brandon Fernandez and Nathan Cruz would follow with singles to load the bases.  Coby Barnes would punch a base hit to right field scoring Fernandez.  Another Phillies error, their 3rd of the game would allow Cruz to score giving the Angels a 5-3 lead after three innings.

The Phillies wouldn’t go away quietly however answering right back in the top of the 4th inning  with Chad Palomo walking to lead off the inning and back to back singles by JD San Nicolas and Joe Duenas loading the bases.    However the Phillies would only manage one run on a rbi sac fly by TC Cruz to cut the Angels lead to 5-4 after 4 innings.

Angels starter Freddy Cepeda would shut down the Phillies over the last two innings and go the distance allowing seven hits and 4 runs to pick up the win.  Derwin Aguon and Nathan Cruz had two hits each for the Angels.
