The Angels have hired Bill Richardson, who spent the last five seasons in the Texas Rangers organization, to manage their short-season Class-A team at Orem, Utah, General Manager Jerry Dipoto said Friday. Richardson, 52, will replace Tom Kotchman, who resigned in October after 29 years in the Angels organization, 23 of them managing short-season Class-A clubs in Idaho and Utah. Dipoto had asked Kotchman, the father of big league first baseman Casey Kotchman, to give up his on-field duties at Orem to focus on scouting.

KEY MOMENT: The Angels put the first two runners on base in the first inning when Kole Calhoun doubled to right field and Mike Trout walked. But Albert Pujols grounded into a double play and David Freese lined out to center field, killing the rally and setting the tone for a frustrating evening. The Angels scored twice in the ninth on Trout's run-scoring triple and Freese's sacrifice fly. AT THE PLATE: Justin Smoak capped a superb series with a ninth-inning home run, giving the Seattle first baseman six hits, including two home runs, and seven runs batted in. Corey Hart also singled and homered, and Brad Miller, Robinson Cano and Stefen Romero each had two hits and an RBI for the Mariners.

PEORIA, Ariz. -- The first at-bat went well for the Angels. Robinson Cano, the Seattle Mariners' $240-million man, could haunt the Angels this season. On Saturday, facing the Angels for the first time in a Seattle uniform, Cano struck out against C.J. Wilson. The next two at-bats did not go as well for the Angels, and neither did the game. Cano singled in two other at-bats, driving in one run and scoring another, in the Mariners' 5-3 victory over the Angels. The game was called in the bottom of the seventh inning because of rain -- lots of it. In a game in which the Angels' lineup included one regular -- outfielder Kole Calhoun -- the Angels got two of their seven hits from utility infielder Grant Green.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The agent for Mike Trout knew for days that the Angels would “renew” the contract of the star outfielder Mike Trout because they were far apart in negotiations for a 2013 salary. But when Trout was assigned a salary of $510,000 on Saturday, a mere $20,000 above the major league minimum, after winning American League rookie of the year honors and finishing second in voting for most valuable player last season, Craig Landis was stunned. “During the process, on behalf of Mike, I asked only that the Angels compensate Mike fairly for his historic 2012 season, given his service time,” Landis, who represents Trout, said in an email.
