The Angels scored as many runs in the second inning Wednesday as they had in any of their first eight games, riding a season-high 13-hit outburst to an easy 10-2 victory over the Texas Rangers in Globe Life Park.
Johnny Giavotella split the left-center field gap with a bases-loaded, two-run single, and Matt Joyce hit a two-run double to left-center to highlight a six-run second to help the Angels win two of three games in the series.
Mike Trout, who, like every player on the field Wednesday, wore No. 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson Day, reached base four times -- on three singles and a walk -- for the 42nd time of his career.
Left-hander Hector Santiago pitched superbly, giving up one run and four hits in seven innings, striking out five and walking two, to improve to 1-1, his only blemish a solo homer that Carlos Corporan hit to right field in the fifth.
Reliever Adam Wilk, who was called up from triple-A Salt Lake before the game, made his Angels debut, escaping a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the eighth but allowing Rosales’ solo homer in the ninth.
