Trout, Heaney with career highs in Angels' 5-1 win at Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Andrew Heaney was focused on going as deep as he could for the Los Angeles Angels in the opener of a hot day-night doubleheader.

After the Angels used eight pitchers in an 11-inning series-opening loss, and then flipped their scheduled starters Tuesday because of Jaime Barria's fever, Heaney got an earlier start than expected. The lefty had a career-high 14 strikeouts without a walk over eight innings in a 5-1 win over the Texas Rangers in the doubleheader opener.

"Considering the circumstance of the extra-inning game last night, doubleheader today, he gave us exactly what we needed," manager Brad Ausmus said.
