Pujols homers twice in 3rd inning, Angels beat Brewers 15-7
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Albert Pujols hit a pair of home runs in the third inning off Wily Peralta and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Milwaukee Brewers 15-7 on Saturday.
Pujols had an RBI single in the first inning, then led off the third with a drive that landed on the berm in left-center field. Pujols capped the eight-run inning with another homer off Peralta, a two-run shot that cleared the lawn area in left. Pujols has three homers this spring.
Peralta left after Pujols' second homer. He went 2 2/3 innings, giving up 11 hits and 10 runs, seven of them earned.
Angels outfielder Daniel Nava was hit on top of the helmet by a pitch from Peralta in the second. Nava left the game but the Angels said he did not show any concussion symptoms.
