Reporting from Surprise, Ariz. -- Angels right-hander Ervin Santana continued to show no ill effects from a comebacker that hit him in the throwing shoulder earlier this month. He gave up only one run and five hits in five innings of a 3-2 exhibition victory over the Texas Rangers in Surprise Stadium Saturday.
Santana, who has 2.19 earned-run average in 12 1/3 spring innings, struck out two and walked two against a lineup of Rangers regulars, his only blemish Ian Kinsler's solo home run to lead off the fifth inning.
"So far, so good," said Santana, who threw 74 pitches. "I'm working on my location. The shoulder is good. When it's time to pitch, I forget about that and pitch."
Kendrys Morales, who had been sidelined for almost two years because of a broken left ankle, continued his strong comeback, capping a two-run sixth inning with a run-scoring single to right field. It was the third straight start for Morales, who has five hits, including a home run, in the three games.
