Royals Spring Training Update: Felipe Paulino Gets The Best Of Albert Pujols

The L.A. Angels of Anaheim look to have made a sound investment in pitcher C.J. Wilson, who pitched five scoreless innings against the Royals on Tuesday, but Kansas City still managed a 6-4 win over the Angels with a two-run eighth inning.

Royals starter Felipe Paulino handled himself nicely through four innings, allowing only one run and struck out Albert Pujols twice. The new Angels first basemen was 0-for-4 on the day, all strikeouts, but is still batting a healthy .367.

The Royals and Angels will meet again on MLB Opening Day, April 6 in Anaheim, and Kansas will next play Oakland on Wednesday (3:05 p.m. CT). Luis Mendoza will take the hill for the Royals, as the right hander has put together a phenomenal Cactus League run this Spring (1 ER in 10.6 innings, 11 Ks)
