Freeway Series Recap: Angels Walk-Off Dodgers In Spring Training Finale

The Los Angeles Dodgers traveled to Anaheim for their final Spring Training matchup of 2024 in a Freeway Series matchup with the Los Angeles Angels, but dropped the game on a walk-off loss.

James Paxton made the start for his final tune-up game before he starts his season against the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium.

Paxton turned in a solid start overall, but made a few mistakes. He finished his day with five innings pitched, giving up three runs on four hits with two walks and two strikeouts.

The Angels scored two runs in the first inning when Brandon Drury doubled following a walk from Mike Trout and a single from Taylor Ward. They increased their lead to three runs when Miguel Sanó homered in the third inning.

Angels’ starter Chase Silseth was pitching a perfect game through 4.1 innings, but Freddie Freeman broke that, and the shutout, with a solo home run for his fourth of the spring.

Will Smith followed with a homer of his own to make it back-to-back blasts for the Dodgers.

With Silseth out of the game in the sixth inning and Adam Cimber in the game, Gavin Lux tied the game with his first home run in Spring Training.

Kyle Hurt worked a scoreless inning with two strikeouts, and Jared Karros impressed in his appearance. Jared is the son of Eric Karros, who was part of the SportsNet L.A. broadcast calling the game.

Jared Karros pitched two innings, giving up just one hit with four strikeouts and one walk.

John Rooney entered the game in the ninth and gave up a two-out triple to Zach Neto, who came around to score the winning run on a single from Jack Lopez.
