TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Albert Pujols hit his fourth homer and Trevor Bell pitched into the fifth inning in a bid to earn the Angels’ No. 5 starter role, leading Los Angeles to a 6-5 victory over the Texas Rangers Sunday.

Both managers chose to keep their aces from facing a division rival. Instead, the Rangers’ Yu Darvish gave up four runs and six hits in five innings Sunday in an intrasquad game. The Angels’ C.J. Wilson, former Rangers ace, worked five innings and allowed six hits and three runs – two earned – in a minor league game.

Randal Grichuk’s RBI single in the ninth lifted the Angels to a win. Jorge Cantu hit a two-run homer in the eighth to snap a 2-all tie but the Rangers scored three in the top of the ninth.

Bell allowed three hits and two walks 4 1-3 scoreless innings, his fourth appearance. He struck out three.
