Angels remove Andrew Heaney and win slips away at Cleveland

baltimoresun.com — Angels Manager Mike Scioscia gave his critics plenty of ammunition Friday night, pulling starter Andrew Heaney after six scoreless innings, only to have rookie reliever Trevor Gott give up three seventh-inning runs in a 3-1 loss to the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field. Upon further review, the move was not overly ripe for second-guessing.

Cron (DH/first base) starting against left-handers.
