Trout, Pujols Have RBI Doubles In Angels Loss
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Mike Trout and Albert Pujols each had RBI doubles for the Los Angeles Angels, but the Robinson Cano continued his torrid spring training in the Seattle Mariners’ 10-6 win Tuesday.
Angels starter C.J. Wilson allowed four hits and one unearned run with four strikeouts over five innings. It was his third start.
Wilson, 17-7 with a 3.39 ERA in 2013, was coming off a start in which he pitched four scoreless innings against the Dodgers.
Scott Baker, trying to make the Seattle rotation, had his toughest outing in three spring starts. He allowed five runs — two earned — on five hits over three innings.
Baker hit Pujols, David Freese and Howie Kendrick in succession with two outs in the first but got Hank Conger to fly out to deep right-center.
Cano was 1 for 2 and is hitting .588 for his new team. He also walked. Cano fought off a two-strike pitch from Wilson in the first and hit a soft line single to left.
