AT THE PLATE: Howie Kendrick hit an opposite-field home run in the fourth and singled and scored in the sixth to raise his spring average to .521 (25 for 48) with four home runs and nine runs batted in. Hank Conger hit a two-run home run to right-center in the fourth and a go-ahead two-run triple to right in the sixth.

ON THE MOUND: Jerome Williams was tagged for eight straight hits and six runs in the second, part of a 11/3-inning, 11-hit, seven-run start. "That's unacceptable," said Williams, a long reliever. "I left the ball up. I'm better than that." Left-hander Scott Downs retired the side in order in the third.

EXTRA BASES: Tommy Hanson, pulled from Wednesday's game after three innings because of a tight triceps, is on track to make his next scheduled start Monday against the Chicago White Sox. … Reliever Ryan Madson threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Thursday.

UP NEXT: Angels vs. Kansas City at Tempe Diablo Stadium, 1 p.m. Friday. On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 830.
