LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Aaron Harang allowed one hit over four scoreless innings in his final outing of the spring and Justin Sellers hit a go-ahead RBI single during a three-run sixth, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 4-1 exhibition victory over the Angels on Tuesday night. Harang, who signed a two-year, 12 million contract with the Dodgers as a free agent on Dec. 8, finished his exhibition slate 1-1 with a 2.63 ERA. The 11-year veteran right-hander was 14-7 with a career-best 3.64 ERA last season with San Diego, and is scheduled to make his official Dodgers debut Sunday against his former teammates at Petco Park. Angel Sanchez (1-0) got the win, allowing a run and a hit over two innings. Non-roster invitee Scott Rice escaped a bases-loaded jam in the eighth, retiring Alexi Amarista on a grounder to first base, and Shawn Tolleson got three outs for the save. Angels right-hander Ervin Santana worked in and out of trouble for five innings, allowing a run and six hits on 72 pitches while striking out five and walking one. He finished spring training 1-1 with a 2.08 ERA, and will make his season debut Sunday against Kansas City. The score was tied 1-all on bases-loaded sacrifice flies by Matt Kemp in the Dodgers' fifth and Albert Pujols in the Angels' sixth. The Dodgers took the lead with three runs in their half of the sixth as lefty Hisanori Takahashi (0-1) gave up Sellers' run-scoring single and a two-run single by Matt Treanor. Sellers had entered the game in the fifth as a pinch-runner for A.J. Ellis, who was hit by a Santana pitch just above the left elbow, and Treanor took over for Ellis behind the plate. The Dodgers had plenty other chances to against Santana early on. Juan Rivera led off the second by legging out a double to left and Tony Gwynn Jr. followed with a sharp one-hopper first baseman Pujols, who made a perfect throw to shortstop Erick Aybar for the tag on Rivera scrambling back to second. Three pitches later, Bobby Wilson threw out Gwynn trying to steal. In the Dodgers' third, Harang lined a one-out single through the box -- nearly striking Santana on the shoulder. Dee Gordon followed with a grounder up the middle that could have been an inning-ending double play had the ball not gone under Aybar's glove for an error as he reached the bag. But Mark Ellis lined out to center field and Kemp struck out. The Dodgers threatened again in the fourth with one-out singles by Rivera and Gwynn, but Juan Uribe grounded into a double play started by third baseman Alberto Callaspo. Uribe has just three RBIs in 47 at-bats this spring. The 12-year veteran, who hit a career-high 24 home runs in 2010 to help lead San Francisco to a World Series title, batted just .207 in 77 games last season for the Dodgers after signing a three-year, 21 million contract. NOTES: The Dodgers announced that the Beach Boys, whose 50th anniversary coincides with that of Dodger Stadium, will be on hand for next Tuesday's home opener to perform the National Anthem -- along with a few of their classic hits. ... The Angels outdrew the Dodgers in home attendance last season for the first time, surpassing the 3-million mark for the ninth consecutive season. The Dodgers -- undermined considerably by the public's dissatisfaction with Frank McCourt's ownership -- failed to reach 3 million in a non-strike season for the first time since 1992. ... Adam Kennedy, the second baseman on the Angels' 2002 world championship team, is beginning his first season with the Dodgers -- making him the 86th player to play with both clubs.
