ANAHEIM  (AP) — Rookie sensation Mike Trout hit a go-ahead homer and scored from first base on a single as the Los Angeles Angels rallied from an early five-run deficit against Chad Billingsley to beat the Dodgers 8-5 Friday night in the opener of the season’s second Freeway Series.

Dan Haren (5-7) allowed five runs, nine hits and three walks over five innings with five strikeouts. Ernesto Frieri, the fifth Angels pitcher, worked a hitless ninth for his eighth save in eight chances.

Bobby Abreu hit a three-run homer on the first pitch he saw in his return to Angel Stadium with the Dodgers. But it wasn’t enough for Billingsley (4-6), who gave up six runs and 10 hits in five innings.
