THE GAMES: After going unbeaten in their previous six games, the Angels lost two games on Thursday. They lost 6-2 to the Dodgers at Tempe Diablo Stadium and 8-7 to the Kansas City Royals in Surprise. The Angels blew a 7-3 lead to the Royals in the ninth. The Angels are 9-5-1 and four of the losses have come on the two days they had split squads.

PITCHING REPORT: In Tempe, right-hander Felix Peña gave up two runs in three innings. Although both runs were earned, one of them scored after his own errant throw to second on what would have been an inning-ending double play. In the first inning, he retired the Dodgers in order, with two strikeouts. Peña has allowed three runs in 5-2/3 innings in three games this spring. … Right-hander Cody Allen worked a scoreless inning, retiring three in a row after a leadoff hit. He has not allowed a run in four innings this spring. … Right-hander Luis Garcia walked four batters and gave up two hits, allowing three runs. Garcia had allowed just one run in three innings previously. … In Surprise, right-hander Jaime Barría gave up one run in three innings. Barría, the leading candidate for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, has allowed two earned runs in eight innings in three starts this spring. … Left-hander Jared Walsh, one of the Angels’ two-way players, pitched an inning. He has not allowed a run in three innings. … Right-hander Jesus Castillo was charged with four runs and right-hander Ryan Clark gave up the final two as the Angels let the lead get away.

HITTING REPORT: In Tempe, Mike Trout blasted a ball off the center field fence in the first inning. As the ball rolled back toward the infield, Trout cruised into third with an easy triple. Third base coach Mike Gallego stopped him from trying for an inside-the-park homer. … Jordyn Adams and Jeremiah Jackson, the Angels’ top two picks in last year’s draft, both played for the first time in a big league spring training game. Adams played four innings in center field and Jackson played three innings at shortstop. Adams struck out in his only at-bat and Jackson reached on an error. … In Surprise, José Rojas had a double and two RBIs. Rojas, a product of Vanguard University, is now 8 for 19 with five extra-base hits. He is not in big league camp, but he’s been called up frequently from minor league camp. … Wilfredo Tovar hit his second homer of the spring.

UP NEXT: Angels (LHP Andrew Heaney) vs. White Sox (LHP Manny Bañuelos), Friday, noon PT, Tempe Diablo Stadium
