    Los Angeles 14, Milwaukee 8

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Vladimir Guerrero had a home run among his four hits, Maicer Izturis hit a bases-loaded triple and the Los Angeles Angels rallied for a 14-8 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday.

    For the second time in a week, a spring game in Arizona was halted by a swarm of bees. There was only a brief stoppage Monday when the insects invaded the Angels' dugout. But on Thursday in Tucson, the Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies game was called after five innings because of a persistent swarm.

    "I don't think anybody flipped out or screamed like a girl," Angels starter John Lackey said.

    Izturis, who is competing for a spot on the 25-man roster, tripled in the sixth and Steve Finley hit his first homer of the spring to help the Angels come back from a 7-2 deficit.

    Victor Santos, slated to be the Brewers' No. 3 starter, allowed six runs in five innings and dropped his ERA from 11.45 to 11.25. It was his second straight rough start, having allowed eight runs in two-plus innings against the Chicago White Sox last Wednesday.

    Angels right-hander Lackey last just two innings, allowing seven runs on seven hits in his worst spring start. Bill Hall hit his first spring homer off Lackey in the second. Carlos Lee, who went 4-for-5, hit his seventh homer in the seventh off Jake Woods.

    Garret Anderson, Izturis, David Matranga and Bengie Molina each had two hits for Anaheim.

    Lackey had allowed only two earned runs over his previous three starts, spanning 11 2-3 innings.

    "I just wasn't locating anything very good," he said. "This is really the first time I've felt bad all spring. I'm not going to overanalyze this too much. I'm going to leave it right here."

    Game notes


    Reliever Esteban Yan worked three scoreless innings for the Angels. ... The Brewers were roughed up physically.

The Angels placed OF Tim Salmon (surgery to his left knee), INF Adam Kennedy (surgery on his right ACL) and RHP Matt Hensley (weakness in his right shoulder) on the 15-day DL retroactive to Friday.
