GLENDALE, Arizona — Albert Pujols hit his first home run this spring and the Los Angeles Angels tied the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-7 on Thursday.

Pujols connected off Dodgers starter Brett Anderson. Pujols had two hits and drove in two runs.

Andrew Heaney, competing for a spot in the Angels' rotation, gave up six runs on seven hits and a walk in 3 1-3 innings. Alex Guerrero hit a three-run homer during a five-run second.

The Angels acquired Heaney from the Dodgers in a trade for second baseman Howie Kendrick on Dec. 10. The Dodgers traded him to the Angels minutes after they got him from Miami in a deal for second baseman Dee Gordon and pitcher Dan Haren.

Anderson allowed three runs and seven hits in 1 2-3 innings.
