Cubs 14, Angels 13 AT THE PLATE: Mark Trumbo had a huge game, going four for four with a mammoth home run and a double that might have traveled 440 feet had it not hit the batter's eye in dead center. Five other Angels had at least two hits, led by Alberto Callaspo (three for four) and Brandon Wood (two for five with a homer, double and three RBIs). ON THE MOUND: Dan Haren looked ready for opening day in an effortless three-inning outing in which he did not allow a ball to leave the infield.

Mark Trumbo didn't just get a hit all five times he stepped to the plate Tuesday night. He circled the bases every time, too. Trumbo matched a team record with four extra-base hits, including back-to-back home runs with Josh Hamilton, and Chris Iannetta and Erick Aybar also went deep as the Angels beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 12-6. Trumbo had a career-best five hits and became the first player in Angels history to collect five hits and score five runs in the same game.

HOUSTON - A visit to Dr. James Andrews, the orthopedic surgeon who performs more than 200 Tommy John surgeries per year, can cause great consternation for big league pitchers and their teams, but Sean Burnett actually got some good news after being examined by Andrews in Florida on Monday. “Everything came back good,” the Angels reliever said in a text message. “Just some forearm inflammation and some nerve irritation. He gave me a shot, and I will need to take a few days off from throwing.” Burnett had a 1.04 earned-run average in 11 appearances before being put on the 15-day disabled list April 28 because of forearm irritation.

Josh Hamilton said he was assured by doctors this week that the allergies that lead to occasional sinus and throat discomfort and dizziness were not caused or exacerbated by his heavy cocaine use from 2002-2005. "You have a hallway up the middle of your nose and sinus cavities on each side," said Hamilton, whose addiction to drugs and alcohol led to a ban from baseball from 2003-2005. "When you breathe air, it goes up and down the hallway. "Same thing when you do drugs, it goes up the hallway, not into the sinus cavities.

Reporting from Tempe, Ariz. — Garrett Richards called it a "battle day. " His pitches were up in the strike zone. He threw his curveball for the first time in a spring game. And he was hit around a bit. The 23-year-old Angels right-hander gave up six hits and two runs in five innings Wednesday in a triple-A game against Colorado Rockies farmhands. The Angels were off Wednesday, so Richards was joined in the game by big league catchers Chris Iannetta and Bobby Wilson , outfielder Mike Trout and two other members of the major league roster.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Apparently Albert Pujols doesn't need his knee to hit. The Angels have gone slow this spring with their first baseman, who underwent offseason surgery on his right knee. But his swing looked to be in midseason form Saturday when Pujols crushed a majestic solo home run off Colorado's Juan Nicasio in the third inning of the Angels' 8-6 loss to the Rockies before a crowd of 9,288 at Tempe Diablo Stadium. Pujols, who has yet to play the field this spring, was making just his second start of the Cactus League season, both as the designated hitter.

- The Angels have sweat out harrowing late-inning moments in most of their 10 victories this season, but they could have made things a lot easier on themselves Wednesday had they not run into two outs on the bases in the eighth inning. Erick Aybar opened the inning with a single and was thrown out trying to steal, the seventh time in 17 tries the Angels have been thrown out stealing. Mike Trout tripled to center field and scored on Albert Pujols' sacrifice fly to give the Angels a 5-2 lead over the Oakland Athletics.

Reporting from Seattle When the Angels traded closer Brian Fuentes to the Minnesota Twins on Friday, Manager Mike Scioscia said he would use a "pyramid" of relievers Kevin Jepsen, Francisco Rodriguez and Jordan Walden in front of setup-man-turned-closer Fernando Rodney. A pyramid to success, it wasn't Tuesday night. The Seattle Mariners scored three runs in the eighth inning off Jepsen and Rodriguez for a 3-1 come-from-behind victory over the Angels in Safeco Field.
