The last 48 hrs have been crazy. Michael was called up to the "Big Show" late Friday night while on the road in Texas with the Travelers. In the blink of an eye, he was off to Annaheim, given uniform #51, and was seated in the bullpen for the Saturday night game against the Astros. Angels were down 4-1 when #51 was called into the game at the start of the 8th for his MLB debut. First pitch was a groundball out to short, followed by two quick strikeouts. Angels scored 2 in the bottom of the 8th to close it to 4-3. Michael went out for the ninth and had two more strikeouts and a pop-up to short to end the inning. In the bottom of the ninth with Jimenez and Trout on base, Pujols hit a walk off double to give the Angels a 5-3 victory and Michael his first MLB win!
Michael had his first start and picked up his first win in as an Arkansas Traveler with five shutout innings: 5IP, 4H, 1BB, 3K
Travs Win in Roth's Debut
Michael has been assigned to the Arkansas Travelers in Little Rock. The Travelers enjoy one of the longest running histories of any minor league franchises. They have been the Class AA affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim since 2001. They own two Texas League championships, and Michael is looking forward to getting his 2013 season started in SEC country!
Gamecocks and SEC fans be sure and check the schedule, and go out and cheer Michael and his fellow Gamecock Mike Cisco on their new team!
