TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) – Colorado starter Jhoulys Chacin allowed three hits and a run in four innings and the Rockies topped the Los Angeles Angels 8-1 on Wednesday.

He walked two with a strikeout in his second spring start.

Chacin went 9-11 with a 3.28 ERA in 21 starts with Colorado in 2010 as a rookie.

In his previous start, Chacin worked two perfect innings against Arizona with a strikeout.

Angels starter Scott Kazmir made his third spring start and pitched out of several jams.

Kazmir, 9-15 with a 5.94 ERA in 2010, made his third spring start Wednesday.

He went three innings, allowing an unearned run, and five hits, four walks and a strikeout.

Kazmir allowed an unearned run in the first but pitched out of a jam. His errant pickoff throw while trying to get Dexter Fowler at second sent him to third. Fowler then scored on a wild pitch with Jason Giambi batting.

The Angels tied the game in the second when Mark Trumbo doubled to start the inning and scored on Bobby Wilson’s infield single.

The Rockies broke open a 1-1 game with seven runs off Angels left-hander Trevor Reckling in the eighth. Ben Paulsen hit his first spring homer, a two-run shot, in the inning.

Reckling allowed six hits and seven runs, all earned, in two innings, raising his spring ERA to 16.50.
