SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Howie Kendrick launched his third homer of the spring and Ervin Santana threw four scoreless innings, but the Los Angeles Angels lost to the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Monday.
Santana, removed from his previous start Wednesday after taking a line drive off the right shoulder against the White Sox, showed no ill effects in his 61-pitch outing. He allowed just two singles and struck out four.
Colorado starter Juan Nicasio went five innings and also fanned four. But he ran into trouble in the third, when Kendrick hit a 2-0 pitch to center for a three-run homer.
Those were the first earned runs allowed this spring by Nicasio, who gave up five hits.
Rockies third baseman Casey Blake, making his first appearance in eight days due to a sore neck following offseason surgery, was 0 for 2 with a walk and is 0 for 11 this spring with four strikeouts.

It has been 10 years since the (then) Anaheim Angles won the World Series on the backs of rookies John Lackey and Francisco Rodriguez, and older folks like Bengie Molina and Garret Anderson (not to mention the Rally Monkey). Post 2002, the Angles went on a tear, winning the AL West five times between 2004 and 2009.

Texas Rangers catcher Mike Napoli can't quite figure out why Los Angeles Angels pitcher and former teammate C.J. Wilson felt the need to send his phone number out on Twitter.
Wilson sent a tweet acting as if he was giving his former teammate his number, but instead posted an old phone number of Napoli's. Wilson then deleted the tweet and called it a prank.
On a wet, chilly day that even included some hail, the Angels' Dan Haren and the Dodgers' Chris Capuano managed to get their work in.
''That was uncomfortable for everybody, but it was the same for both teams,'' Haren said after Sunday's 5 1/2-inning, 1-1 tie between the Los Angeles rivals.
Haren was perfect through three innings before giving up a run...
