Albert Pujols was the star there with two homers, three RBI and three runs.

If the Angels scored eight runs, there's a pretty good chance Mike Trout had something to do with it, and sure enough he clocked a two-run home run in the third inning Friday night.

Dwight Smith Jr. drove in both of Baltimore's runs on a two-run shot in the first inning.

Mancini staked Baltimore to a 1-0 lead in the first inning with his seventh home run, the major-league leading 13th allowed by Cahill this season.

The Halos hammered Dan Straily (LAA 8, BAL 3) and won for the seventh time in their last 10 games.

Both home runs came against Dylan Bundy (1-5), who has yielded 11 long balls this season after serving up a major league-high 41 a year ago. Prior to the opener of that series, during batting practice, the two-time MVP noticed the elementary schooler wearing his No. 27 jersey and holding a giant "Mike Trout is my idol" sign.

The Angels centerfielder responded by launching his second homer at Camden Yards and eighth homer of the season. "After spending three minutes talking to the Edelsons, Trout headed back into the Angels clubhouse, but not before giving his bat to Gavin, and his batting gloves to 11-year old brother Jacob".

Ohtani is a two-way player and was 2018 Rookie of the Year. He's 2 for 16 (.125) with seven strikeouts.

Angels: LHP Andrew Heaney, sidelined since early March due to elbow inflammation, was scheduled to throw on Friday against hitters in an extended spring training game in Arizona. RHP J.C. Ramirez (elbow) had no issues following a two-inning stint in a simulated game on Thursday. Jonathan Villar is 8-for-42 with four doubles, a home run and six RBIs over the last 10 games for Baltimore. "We just felt like it was a good time for Evan to go down and work on a couple things", Hyde said of Phillips, who gave up two runs on Friday night and has a 7.11 ERA.

Willson Contreras hit a walk-off home run in the 15th inning to lift the Chicago Cubs to a 2-1 win over the visiting Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday afternoon.
