Conger, Wilson, Trumbo lead Angels to 9-8 win over Diamondbacks

Pinch-hitter Hank Conger lined a bases-loaded single to right with one out in the ninth inning, snapping a tie and giving the Angels a 9-8 Cactus League victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

Conger's hit came two batters after Bobby Wilson capped a 5-for-5 performance with a run-scoring double into the left-field corner to tie the game. Wilson, battling for the No. 2 catcher's spot on the Angels' roster, is hitting .579 this spring.

Mark Trumbo had another big day with the bat as well, going 2 for 3 with two runs scored and four driven in. Both of Trumbo's hits went for extra bases -- a double and his team-leading fourth home run of the year -- while the four RBIs give him 11 in Cactus League play.

Vernon Wells and Jean Segura also had two hits apiece, while Howie Kendrick scored twice for the Angels, who are 7-8 this spring.

On the mound Fernando Rodney and Scott Downs each pitched perfect innings, striking out one apiece, while Jered Weaver gave up two earned runs on four hits, striking out six, in four innings.
