Alcantara’s Major League debut shaky as Angels win 10-7

Raul Alcantara’s first start in a Major League baseball game did not go as he would have hoped, as the Los Angeles Angels beat the A’s 10-7 in Oakland on Monday.

Alcantara hit three batters in the first inning before finishing his game with five earned runs in three innings on five hits, a walk, the three hit batters and a balk.

Alcantara is scheduled to play again five games from now.

“Until you experience that first Major League game, you are never quite sure how it’s going to go,” pitching coach Curt Young told reporters.

As for his own performance, Alcantara told reporters, “It wasn’t me. I’m not used to pitching that way.”
