    PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- Garret Anderson led off the second inning with a home run to help the Los Angeles Angels beat the San Diego Padres 15-2 on Monday night.

    Anderson has been hampered this spring by sprained plantar fascia tissue in his foot. He went 1-for-2 and played left field in just his second game since March 7.

    Orlando Cabrera, Juan Rivera, Dallas McPherson and Darrell Sales also homered for the Angels. Sales' shot was a grand slam with no outs in the ninth inning.

    Padres starter Woody Williams allowed six hits and four runs in four innings. He could start the season in the bullpen because the Padres plan to go with four starters due to two early off days.

    Los Angeles pitcher Kelvim Escobar worked six innings, allowing four hits and two runs. He struck out six and walked three.

    Mark Bellhorn homered and Mike Piazza drove in San Diego's other run with a groundout in the third.

    Bellhorn learned earlier in the day that he lost out to rookie Josh Barfield in the competition for the starting job at second base. Bellhorn was hitting .179 going into Monday night's game, when he started at third. He hit into a double play in the third.
