 SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Joe Blanton allowed one infield single over five scoreless innings and Collin Cowgill hit a three-run homer and a Los Angeles Angels split-squad beat the Texas Rangers 12-1 Wednesday.

Blanton, who had a 14.29 ERA in his first two spring outings, struck out five and walked none. Michael Choice’s grounder that shortstop Grant Green bobbled was the only hit Blanton allowed.

Cowgill homered on a 0-2 Alexi Ogando fastball in a five-run second when the Angels batted around.

John McDonald drove in three runs with a double in the second and a single in the fifth.

Jim Adduci doubled home the only Texas run in the seventh.
