Hamilton homers off Ryu as Angels beat DodgersTEMPE, Arizona - In a big-money Los Angeles matchup, Josh Hamilton, 31 years old, hit his first home run in an Angels uniform, connecting off 25-year-old Ryu Hyun-jin during the first inning of a 16-8 win over a Dodgers’ split squad Friday.
Hamilton, the 2010 AL MVP, left Texas to sign a $125 million, five-year deal with the Angels. He sent a drive to right on a full-count pitch.
After going zero for 3 against Arizona on Tuesday in his first spring training game, Hamilton was 2 for 2 against the Dodgers, adding a third-inning single against Matt Palmer.
In his first spring training start for the Dodgers, Ryu gave up two runs and four hits in two innings with three strikeouts and a walk. He walked AL Rookie of the Year Mike Trout in the first ahead of Hamilton’s homer.
