Greinke Throws Gem But Conger’s Pinch HR Leads Angels Past Dodgers 2-1

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Hank Conger pinch hit for Josh Hamilton and smacked a two-out homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Los Angeles Angels a 2-1 victory over the Dodgers on Saturday night in the teams’ final exhibition game.

The teams agreed to end the game after nine innings if the game was tied. Yimi Garcia struck out his first two batters before Conger drove a 1-0 pitch a few rows into the right-field seats. It was his fourth homer of the spring and team-high 16th RBI.

Tommy Hanson gave up a run and three hits in 6 1-3 innings and struck out six in his fifth start this spring, finishing 0-2 with a 5.89 ERA.

Dodgers starter Zack Greinke threw 81 pitches over five innings, allowing a run and three hits with five strikeouts in his fourth spring start.
