Spring training: Angels 9, San Diego 8
Highlights of the Angels’ 9-8 victory over San Diego at Tempe Diablo Stadium on Saturday:
AT THE PLATE: Facing starter James Shields in the second inning, Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun hit consecutive home runs. Shields said he believed Pujols’ home run was foul. … Carlos Perez, C.J. Cron, Daniel Nava and Johnny Giavotella had extra-base hits. … The Angels won it in the ninth inning when Cliff Pennington singled, stole second base and scored on a single by Craig Gentry.
ON THE MOUND: Left-hander Andrew Heaney struck out seven batters and walked one in five innings. He gave up six hits and two runs. Heaney said he lost the feel for his slider during his second time through the order and relied only on his fastball and changeup. … Closer Huston Street threw a perfect inning, as did right-hander Javy Guerra, who is competing for a bullpen role. Right-hander Al Alburquerque, also competing for a reliever spot, gave up a home run in one inning.
UP NEXT: San Diego on Sunday, 1 p.m. at Peoria Sports Complex. On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 830.
