TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) David Freese had three hits and Albert Pujols two and a Los Angeles Angels' split squad roughed up Milwaukee starter Matt Garza in a 12-2 win on Wednesday.

Garza's rough spring continued as he allowed 10 runs, six earned, and nine hits in 1 2-3 innings.

The Brewers committed two errors in an eight-run Angels' second.

Garza reportedly rejected more money from the Angels to sign a four-year $50 million contract with Milwaukee. His spring ERA is 19.06 after three starts.

Los Angeles starter Hector Santiago continued his solid spring. He allowed five hits and two earned runs in 4 1-3 innings with six strikeouts in his third spring outing.

Santiago went 4-7 with a 3.56 ERA with the Chicago White Sox in 2013.

He came to the Angels in a three-way deal that sent Mark Trumbo to Arizona.
