Reds power past Angels 5-4

CINCINNATI (AP) - Shin-Soo Choo homered on Joe Blanton's first pitch of the game Thursday, the first of Cincinnati's three homers off the right-hander, and the Reds pulled away to a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.

The Reds took two of three during the first inter-league series to open a season.

Todd Frazier had a solo homer off Blanton (0-1), and Chris Heisey's two-run shot put Cincinnati up 5-3 in the fifth. Blanton gave up five runs and seven hits in five innings.

Bronson Arroyo (1-0) gave up three runs in six innings, including Josh Hamilton's two-run single that was his first hit for the Angels. Albert Pujols drove in a pair of runs with a sacrifice fly and a groundout.

Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth for his first save.
