Heaney became the ninth different pitcher to start for the Angels in their first 15 games.
The right-handed pitcher with a fastball averaging about 99 miles per hour, along with a nasty splitter and a biting slider, was 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA and 18 strikeouts over 13 innings while allowing only four hits in his two starts on the mound, both against Oakland.
As a unit, Kansas City's pitchers have allowed 4.5 runs per game overall this year.

In his 10 career starts after a Royals defeat, Junis is 5-1 with a 2.83 ERA. Skoglund has not won since.
The Royals, who have lost eight of 11, have scored a total of 32 runs this season - and 10 of those came in Monday's victory over Seattle. In his opener, he gave up four earned runs, only gave up two in his second, and then allowed just one earned run in his last start. It was Skoglund's first work in 23 days. He will try to end the Royals' five-game losing skid.
The Angels are in Kansas City to take on the Royals on Saturday in the third game of a four game series on Saturday.
"They signed and traded for a bunch of guys, so to make the playoff roster was definitely going to be tough", Fiers said this spring, adding that while he was disappointed, he could not argue. You hear the labrum tear and you get down in the dumps.
