Rockies 8, Angels 1

AT THE PLATE: Bobby Wilson continued his sensational spring, going two for three to raise his average to .429. He also drove in the Angels' only run, beating out an infield hit to score Mark Trumbo.

ON THE MOUND: Scott Kazmir had an eventful 65-pitch outing in which he gave up everything but an earned run, allowed five hits and four walks, committed an error and made a wild pitch. Relievers Kevin Jepsen, Jordan Walden and Jason Bulger followed, combining for three scoreless innings in which they gave up two hits. Walden has not given up a run this spring.

EXTRA BASES: Trumbo's second-inning run was his team-best eighth of the spring. He also leads the team with 11 hits, 24 total bases and an .800 slugging percentage, among other things, and is hitting .367. And 19-year-old rookie Mike Trout had a pinch-hit single in the ninth and is batting .364.

UP NEXT: Joel Pineiro will start against the Royals and Vin Mazzaro at Tempe, while an Angels' split squad will play Seattle in Peoria, where Matt Palmer will square off against Erik Bedard. Both games are at noon PST.

ON THE AIR: Radio: KLAA AM 830. (Tempe game only).
