Story shines for Rockies in 6-6 tie with Angels

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Trevor Story had two hits, two RBIs and made a fine play throwing out Mike Trout to boost his chances of being Colorado's starting shortstop in the Rockies' 6-6, nine-inning tie with a Los Angeles Angels split squad on Friday.

With Jose Reyes on paid leave while facing domestic violence charges, the 23-year-old Story has thrived despite never playing above Triple-A. His two-run single off Angels starter Garrett Richards in the third inning came after his stab in the hole and running throw to get Trout.

Story singled again and Nolan Arenado tripled off Richards, who allowed three runs and six hits in five innings.

Arenado also doubled and is hitting .600 (18 for 30) this spring.

Yunel Escobar and Cliff Pennington had three hits apiece and Rey Navarro hit a three-run homer off Brock Huntzinger in the fourth for the Angels.
