Ben Joyce records strikeout against Padres

Los Angeles defeated San Diego, 5-3, on Friday in spring training.

The contest took place at Peoria Stadium in Peoria, Arizona.

Former Vol Ben Joyce pitched one inning for the Angles. He recorded one strikeout, while allowing two hits, two walks and one earned run.

Joyce was selected by the Angels in the third-round (No. 89 overall) of the 2022 Major League Baseball draft.

He played for the Vols from 2021-22. The former Vol did not play in 2021 due to rehabbing from offseason surgery.

Joyce (2-1) appeared in 27 games and started one contest in 2022 for Tennessee. He totaled 53 strikeouts in 32.1 innings pitched during the 2022 campaign.
