THE GAME: With the Angels using all nine position players they are likely to use on Opening Day for the first time, they beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 on Thursday at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz.

PITCHING REPORT: Right-hander Noé Ramírez, who got the start in a bullpen game, pitched three scoreless innings in his best outing of the spring. Ramírez has allowed eight earned runs in nine innings this spring, but he hasn’t allowed any runs in five innings in his last two outings. “He had one bad outing I saw, but he’s had a few real good ones, at least two excellent ones,” Manager Brad Ausmus said. Ausmus also said it’s “huge” to have a reliever who can pitch multiple innings, as Ramírez can, especially early in the season when the starters aren’t stretched out yet. … Right-hander Cam Bedrosian worked around two walks to pitch a scoreless inning. … Right-handers Ty Buttrey and Justin Anderson each pitched perfect innings after working the night before. … The Angels did not give up a run until minor leaguer Jason Alexander allowed one in the eighth.

HITTING REPORT: David Fletcher doubled in the third and scored the game’s first run on a Mike Trout single into right field. Trout played all nine innings in his first game after signing his record-breaking contract. “Pay him all that money, he needs to play nine,” Ausmus joked. Ausmus said all his regulars will play a full nine innings one time before the season. … Albert Pujols had a single in three at-bats. Pujols is 13 for 35 (.371) this spring. … Dustin Garneau drove in the Angels’ second run with a single in the seventh. … Andrelton Simmons went hitless again, dropping to 4 for 33 (.121). Ausmus said he’s not concerned about Simmons’ spring because “he’s got a track record.”

DEFENSE REPORT: Left fielder Justin Upton took a couple of steps back and leaped to snag a line drive. Upton played five innings in left, just his second game in the outfield this spring. … Anderson deflected a comebacker and ran about 60 feet to pick it up and flip it to first for the out.

UP NEXT: Angels (RHP Trevor Cahill) vs. White Sox (LHP Carlos Rodon), Friday, 1 p.m. Tempe Diablo Stadium; Angels (LHP Dillon Peters) vs. Mariners (RHP Tyler Danish), Friday, 6:40 p.m, Peoria Sports Complex
