Haren Sharp, Pujols Hitless In Win Over Indians
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Dan Haren worked two hitless innings for Los Angeles in his spring debut and the Angels beat the Cleveland Indians 6-5 Thursday.
Angels slugger Albert Pujols was 0 for 2 with a walk, but still had fans buzzing by hammering a pitch from Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez far out of the ballpark, though it hooked foul.
Jose Lopez had a two-run homer and Ezequiel Carrera a two-run single for Cleveland, held hitless for four innings.
Jimenez allowed two runs in two innings. In a 31-pitch first, he gave up two runs, two hits, walked two and had a run-scoring wild pitch.
Alexi Amarista had a two-run triple and Alberto Callaspo and Bobby Wilson added RBI singles as the Angels took a 5-0 lead.
