Jaff Dacker and Matt Clark each hit a solo homer during a three-run seventh inning to lead the San Diego Padres to a 6-3 win over Los Angeles in front of 9,562 fans - the Angels' first home sellout of the spring. Angels slugger Albert Pujols gave many of the fans their money's worth with two hits in two at-bats with a sacrifice fly and an RBI. He narrowly missed a homer to left-center field in the sixth and settled for a double. Padres left-hander Clayton Richard made his first appearance on the mound since last July 4 and allowed two hits and a run in two innings.

Premature assumptions and conclusions on the early Angels spring training games

Spring training baseball, ain't it great!  Actually, it really isn't great.  The play tends to be sloppy, disjointed and full of players you have never heard of and never will hear of.  It just seems great because it is actual baseball and we haven't seen that in months.  I guess that makes it still great, just on a relative basis. With the overrated greatness of...
