ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Albert Pujols hit a three-run homer, Mike Trout had a tiebreaking three-run double and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-1 Saturday night to complete a three-game sweep of the preseason Freeway Series.

Nick Tropeano allowed a run and five hits in four innings while throwing 73 pitches. The right-hander, who will begin the season at Triple-A Salt Lake, was 2-0 with a 6.48 ERA in five spring starts.

Trout was 2 for 2 with two doubles and a walk after missing two games because of a stomach virus.

The Angels loaded the bases in the fourth when Alex Wood gave up a two-out single by Yunel Escobar and walked Craig Gentry with his 68th and final pitch. Zach Lee came on to face Trout, who doubled to left-center on a 1-1 pitch to give the Halos a 4-1 lead.
