Angels 5, Giants 3 …

Recap

Brad Mills had another solid outing and Alexi Amarista hit a three-run triple in the ninth to give the Angels the victory.

The good

Peter Bourjos went 2-for-2 with a walk, a double and two runs scored to put him at .318 this spring.

Mills gave up just two runs in six innings and now has a 1.23 ERA in 14 2/3 innings this spring.

Kevin Jepsen, who’s looking like he’ll nail down a bullpen spot, had a clean seventh inning.

Likely backup catcher Bobby Wilson went 2-for-3 with a couple of RBIs.

The bad

Bobby Abreu went 0-for-2 with a walk and is now at .095 this spring (4-for-42). Yeah, um, not good.

Vernon Wells went 0-for-4 to put him at .245 in Cactus League play.

A middle-aged woman in the stands, seated a few rows behind the Angels’ dugout, was hit in the face by the flying barrel of Jorge Cantu‘s bat. She was bleeding initially, but walked out consciously before being carted to a local hospital. More should be up on SFGiants.com.

Daily Albert Pujols update: 2-for-3 with a double, but was caught stealing; now at .333 this spring.

Best quote

Mills on Jeff Mathis, the man he was traded for: “I know he was a former first-rounder and other pitchers say they love throwing him. I love catchers like that, too. If I was the manager of the team, I wouldn’t care what my catcher hit. If he hit .100, but caught a heck of a game, that works for me.”

Best play (that I saw)

Mark Trumbo snared a very hard-hit line drive to his right while playing even with the third-base bag.
