Shoemaker battled through five innings for his first victory since that injury, helping the Los Angeles Angels beat the Oakland Athletics 8-5 on Wednesday night.
Analysis: Shoemaker (1-1) went five innings in his fifth start of the season. He was injured on a hit in Seattle by Kyle Seager last September. He experienced no problems in spring training in returning to the mound and the only thing he was missing this season was run support.

Analysis: Shoemaker was splendid otherwise, allowing just three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over seven innings. However, he's allowed six homers in 21 2/3 innings thus far.

Analysis: He allowed another homer, giving him four in 14 2/3 innings to go with a 6.14 ERA.

Analysis: It was the right-hander's second start since his season ended early last September due to a line drive to his head off the bat of Seattle's Kyle Seager. His next outing will be Saturday at Kansas City.

Analysis: It was Shoemaker's first regular-season outing since he was hit by a line drive off Kyle Seager's bat in Seattle last September, an injury that required surgery to stop bleeding in his brain. The right-hander wore a carbon-fiber protective insert under his cap to protect an area where a titanium plate was inserted on his skull. ''It felt pretty good. A little erratic with the location, but overall it felt pretty good,'' said Shoemaker, who threw 99 pitches.
