Hereford Native Bridwell Pitches in Historic LAA Game Versus Oakland

On Monday, Hereford native Parker Bridwell pitched in a historic game between the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Oakland Athletics.

Bridwell started the Monday game between the Oakland Athletics and the Los Angeles Angels and was the first of 12 Los Angeles pitchers to take the mound. The 12 pitchers called upon by the Angels set the record for the most pitchers called upon in an American League game, according to the Sacramento Bee.

In the end, Bridwell lasted three innings in the Angels 11-9 victory. Reliever Fernando Salas took the win for the game over Oakland reliever Blake Treinen.

Monday's game marked the 16th MLB appearance this season by Bridwell.
