Like love, Nick Adenhart believed pitching in the majors would be better the second time around. And since the Williamsport graduate loves to pitch, that makes it all the better. Yet as Adenhart approached his second career major league start on Tuesday, he said things would go much better if he just remembered all the little things that got him in a Los Angeles Angels uniform in the first place. Basically, Adenhart spent the five days after his debut last Thursday against Oakland trying to learn everything he already knew before he stepped on the mound at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium against the Royals.

LOS ANGELES -- Dustin Moseley won the battle to be the Los Angeles Angels' fifth starter, as the team optioned 21-year-old Nick Adenhart -- a 2004 Williamsport High School graduate -- to its minor league camp on Saturday. Adenhart will start the season at the Angels' Triple-A affiliate in Salt Lake City. Adenhart was considered a candidate for the Angels' fifth starting spot, which opened up because Kelvim Escobar and John Lackey are battling injuries. In six appearances this spring, Adenhart went 2-1 with a 5.16 ERA in 22 2/3 innings.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - One man's pain could become the break in Nick Adenhart's career. Adenhart, the Williamsport High graduate, allowed three runs and four hits in four innings in the Angels' 5-4 win over Arizona on Saturday. All the runs off Adenhart came on a second-inning homer by Jeff Salazar. Prior to the game, the Angels announced that ace right-hander John Lackey would be out 3-4 weeks with a right triceps strain. Lackey's injury, plus the shoulder injury to Kelvim Escobar, has left the door wide open for the final spot in the Angels rotation.

In some ways, Nick Adenhart longs for the good ol' days. OK, four years is not that ol', but those days were good. That's when Adenhart was a hot major league draft prospect and a senior pitching for Williamsport High. At that time, the lanky right-hander was turning heads - emphasized by two high-profile matchups with Aaron Laffey, a left-hander in a similar position at Allegany High in Cumberland, Md. Adenhart threw a pair of no-hitters against the Campers and went 1-1, losing in the 2003 Maryland Class 1A quarterfinals and winning the 2004 season opener.

If tight spots bothered Nick Adenhart, he would have to start worrying now. The pressure was on from the start. "In high school, I was voted most likely to succeed," he said. "I went and had the picture taken for the yearbook and didn't think much of it. But in my field, I had the slimmest odds to succeed. " Then it hit Adenhart. Sure, he was one of the best high school pitchers in the nation as a senior at Williamsport in 2004, but that didn't give him a free pass to the stardom and riches that are associated with being a professional baseball player.

In his senior year at Williamsport High School, life threw Nick Adenhart a curve. Now, 2 1/2 years later, he's throwing one back ... and has the start of a budding career because of it. Adenhart was known nationally for his fastball while pitching for the Wildcats. He was a fireballing righthander who was earmarked to be the top pick in the 2004 amateur draft. It all changed in late May of that season when he ripped a ligament in his elbow. Gone was the glory of being a No. 1 pick, but growing from it is the recognition of being able to throw his No. 2. "When I got hurt as a senior, it put things in a whirlwind," said Adenhart on Thursday to about 60 members of the Tri-State Ravens Nest No. 12 during their meeting at Tony's Restaurant.
