Haren sharp in Angels' 12-3 win over Dodgers
Monday, April 2, 2012
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Dan Haren pitched 5 2-3 solid innings in his final spring tuneup, Mark Trumbo hit a three-run homer, and the Angels beat the Dodgers 12-3 Monday night in the opener of a three-game series that will end the exhibition schedule for both Los Angeles teams.
Haren (3-0) threw 94 pitches, striking out five and walking none while finishing his spring with a 2.05 ERA in six starts.
The three-time All-Star right-hander is scheduled to make his season debut next Saturday against Kansas City.
Last year, Haren was 16-10 with a 3.17 ERA, threw a career-high 238 1-3 innings and had an AL-best strikeout-to-walk ratio of 5.82.
Albert Pujols was 0 for 3 with a bases-loaded walk in his first game at Angel Stadium in a Halos uniform. He left the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals to sign a 10-year, $240 million contract.
