GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Collin Cowgill's two-run homer off Trevor Bauer highlighted a three-run fifth inning that carried the Los Angeles Angels over the Cleveland Indians 8-3 Monday.

Cowgill played in 50 games last season for the Angels after coming from the New York Mets in a midseason trade.

Grant Green, competing for a job as the Angels' utility infielder, had two hits.

The outing was a setback for Bauer, who is trying for the Indians' fifth spot in the rotation. He had allowed just two runs in five innings coming into the game.

Danny Salazar, who impressed the Indians late in the season, made his first start of the spring. He gave up one run on two hits and two runs in 1 2-3 innings.

Michael Bourn made a running catch of Green's long drive to straightaway center field with the bases loaded to save Salazar from being charged with more runs.
