SportsbriefsThe Halos used seven pitchers, none of them household names. They yielded four runs. The win went to Brooks Pounders, who worked two innings and gave up no hits. He walked one batter.

At bat and in the field, the Angels ran 19 players through the game and totaled five hits. Ben Revere stood out at the plate, with one hit in one at-bat, driving in a run. The Angels scored one run in the third and another in the seventh.

Next up for the Halos is a game Sunday against the Oakland A’s.
