The exhibition game was meaningless, of course, a final practice as spring training ended and opening day beckoned.

Even so, the 16,990 who saw the Angels defeat the Dodgers, 8-3, at Dodger Stadium — including Angels owner Arte Moreno — were treated to two did-you-see-that home runs courtesy of the Angels, at the expense of Dodgers starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi.

With the victory Wednesday afternoon, the Angels won the rubber game of the three-game Freeway Series ahead of the Dodgers' regular-season opener Thursday in San Diego against the Padres, and the Angels' opener Friday in Anaheim against the Kansas City Royals.
