Cam Bedrosian, hitters shine in Angels' 11-2 exhibition victory over the San Diego Padres

Highlights of the Angels' 11-2 win over San Diego at Peoria Sports Complex:

AT THE PLATE: The Angels scored a run before they made an out. Johnny Giavotella singled, Daniel Nava walked and Mike Trout singled Giavotella in. After Kole Calhoun flied out, C.J. Cron walked, Andrelton Simmons singled and Cliff Pennington singled to cap a four-run inning.

Left fielder Nava, catcher Jett Bandy and Jefry Marte, playing third base, each hit a solo home run. After three singles and a walk, Bandy added a two-run double in the ninth inning to conclude the Angels' scoring.

ON THE MOUND: In relief of starter Hector Santiago, right-hander Cam Bedrosian again impressed the Angels' coaching staff in a scoreless inning. He entered with a runner on first base and retired three hitters consecutively. He has 17 strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings this spring.

Setup man Joe Smith threw a hitless seventh inning. He had allowed at least two hits in each of his previous five Cactus League appearances. He drew at least two missed swings on the changeup he committed to throwing more this spring.

Right-hander Mike Morin and left-hander Jose Alvarez threw a scoreless inning apiece. Both men have solidified spots in the Angels' bullpen.

EXTRA BASES: Angels pitchers did not a walk a batter in 34 plate appearances and struck out 11. It probably was the first time this spring all of the team's innings were handled by pitchers who will make the opening-day roster. . . . Gregorio Petit made a diving stop to end the game. The infielder is likely to begin the season with triple-A Salt Lake.

UP NEXT: Chicago Cubs on Monday at 1 p.m. at Tempe Diablo Stadium. On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 830.
