Barry Zito's scoreless streak ends; A's beat Angels 13-10 

TEMPE — Barry Zito's spotless spring ended when he gave up three home runs to the Los Angeles Angels in the third inning Tuesday, but the Oakland Athletics also had a big day at the plate in a 13-10 victory.

Zito, trying a comeback after sitting out last season, had thrown 13 scoreless innings in Cactus League play before Collin Cowgill, Kole Calhoun and David Freese went deep for the Angels.

The left-hander was tagged for eight hits and seven runs in four innings as his spring training ERA climbed from 2.30 to 5.03. Making his sixth appearance and second start, he struck out two and walked one.

The 36-year-old Zito, a three-time All-Star, began his career in Oakland and won the 2002 AL Cy Young Award with the A's.
