The Los Angeles Angels got to show off their new toy on Sunday, as Zack Greinke took the hill against the Tampa Bay Rays for his first start for the Halos after he was acquired in a trade from the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday.
Things could have gone better. Greinke pitched well, but he ended up losing the game. The Angels couldn't muster any runs against Jeremy Hellickson and a trio of Rays relievers, losing by the final of 2-0.
Though things didn't go according to plan, Greinke's first start in an Angels uniform could have gone a lot worse. The important part is that he pitched well enough to win the game, which is about all the Angels could have asked for.
In all, we learned a lot about Greinke and the Angels on Sunday. Here's a rundown of the five most pressing lessons from his debut.
