    SAN DIEGO (AP) — Taylor Ward acted like it was his first day in the majors everywhere but in the batter’s box.Ward went with a pitch and hit an opposite-field RBI double in his first major league at-bat [url=http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/julio-jones-jersey]http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/julio-jones-jersey[/url] , and had two hits and reached safely three times as the Los Angeles Angels beat the San Diego Padres 7-3 on Tuesday night.“I’m not trying to hit the ball over there, but if they give it to me over there I’ll hit it there,” said Ward, who became the 13th player to debut in the majors for the Angels this year.“He had the normal butterflies that any youngster would have, when he came up, and looked really comfortable in the batter’s box,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “He did a great job.”After the game, Ward reverted to the kid on his first night in the majors, clutching a baseball as he answered questions.

I’ve had some stretches where I’ve been seeing the ball well this year. I just feel like right now I’m getting a few more pitches to hit.”Like the 1-1 pitch from Brett Kennedy that Upton crushed 435 feet into the left-center field bleachers for his 26th homer of the season to make it 5-1 in the fifth inning.“He was locating his fastball really well, but he just made a mistake,” Upton said of Kennedy.Upton, who capped the Angels’ 10-inning win Monday night with a two-run homer [url=http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/matt-ryan-jersey]Matt Ryan Jersey Limited[/url] , added an RBI single in the seventh.“The way he has been swinging it this week
