THE GAME: The Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Friday afternoon at Tempe Diablo Stadium, with the winning run scoring on a bases-loaded walk by Roberto Peña in the ninth. The game was tied after eight innings, so both teams started with a runner at second in the ninth, using a rule that’s been used in extra innings in the minors. The Angels have another game on Friday night against the Seattle Mariners in Peoria.

PITCHING REPORT: In Tempe, right-hander Trevor Cahill, the Angels’ Opening Day starter, pitched 4-1/3 innings and gave up one run. He threw 91 pitches, the most by any Angels starter this spring. “We mixed everything up pretty good, behind in the count, ahead in the count, even backwards a little bit,” Cahill said. “Tried a lot of different sequences just to make sure everything was there.” Cahill finished his spring by allowing 12 earned runs in 16-1/3 innings in five games. … Right-hander Luis Garcia pitched an inning, his fifth straight scoreless outing. … Left-hander Dan Jennings loaded the bases with no outs, but he got a double play and escaped with just one run scoring.

HITTING REPORT: In Tempe, fresh off signing a record 12-year, $426.5-million contract, Mike Trout hit a three-run homer in the first inning, his third homer of the spring. Trout finishes the Arizona portion of spring training 12 for 41 (.293) with a team-leading 11 RBIs. “It’s there,” Trout said of his swing. “Just trying to fine-tune things. Some swings feel good. Some kind of are just in-between.” … Justin Upton drew two walks. Upton, who missed most of the spring with knee tendinitis, is 1 for 7 with three walks since he started playing in Cactus League games. Manager Brad Ausmus said Upton will be ready to play Opening Day, but he might need more days off initially. … Shortstop Andrelton Simmons went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts, dropping to 0 for 14 in his last four games and 4 for 36 this spring.

DEFENSE REPORT: In Tempe, first baseman Albert Pujols handled a couple sharply hit ground balls. Pujols played five innings in the field, and 38 over seven games this spring. Pujols is not expected to play much first base once the season begins, but that will change when Shohei Ohtani comes back to DH. … Third baseman Tommy La Stella charged and made a nice barehand play on a safety squeeze attempt in the ninth inning. … Right fielder Torii Hunter Jr. made a leaping catch at the fence to end the top of the ninth.

UP NEXT: Angels (RHP Jeremy Beasley) at Padres (RHP Tyler Danish), Saturday, 1 p.m. PT, Peoria Sports Complex
