TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The way Ryan Vogelsong is pitching this spring, Giants manager Bruce Bochy should have no worries when the right-hander leaves for the World Baseball Classic.

Vogelsong pitched three more scoreless innings Wednesday in San Francisco's 8-8 tie with the Los Angeles Angels.

``He really looked sharp,' Bochy said.

Vogelsong, 14-9 with a 3.37 ERA with the Giants in 2012, allowed a leadoff single to Mike Trout in the first and nothing else. He struck out four.

In his first spring start Sunday, Vogelsong worked two shutout innings. He's expected to get one more start with the Giants before joining Team USA.

``Everything felt really good,' Vogelsong said. ``I've just got to sharpen up my breaking ball a little bit and things will be where they need to be.'

Barry Zito, who had his best season of six with San Francisco in 2012 with a 15-8 record, replaced Vogelsong and allowed one hit in a scoreless fourth before allowing a hit and a walk in the fifth, which both scored. He was pulled after 1 2-3 innings.

``I'm trying to get a feel for all my pitches right now,' Zito said. ``I was in and out with all my pitches ... I felt OK.'

One day after he drove in four runs against Arizona, Angels' utilityman Bill Hall was pulled from the game in the third inning with tightness in his right quadriceps. Hall, who started at third base, was trying to make a play while charging a chopper near the mound that went for a hit. The Angels said he is day to day.

Top Angels' prospect Kaleb Cowart, doubled in a run in a two-run Angels ninth.

Left-hander Nick Maronde, the Angels' No. 2 prospect, according to Baseball America, gave up three hits and two runs - one earned - in his second outing. He was pulled after 1 1-3 innings. Maronde allowed three runs while getting just two outs in his first appearance Saturday.

The Giants built a 7-2 lead and let it slip away with closer Sergio Romo allowing two runs in the bottom of the ninth. The game was called after nine innings, giving the Giants their third consecutive Cactus League tie and the Angels their second straight tie.

``We just got sloppy,' Bochy said. ``It's the early part of spring training.'

When asked if there was any concern about Romo's ninth inning which he allowed three hits and two runs, Bochy said, ``Serge said he got the ball up a little bit. ... It's February. We're not concerned about him.'

Marco Scutaro ignited an early 3-0 lead with a single in the first off Maronde. He later stole third and came in on catcher Hank Conger's wild throw into left field for an error. Scutaro also singled and scored in the fourth, coming in on Joaquin Arias' sacrifice fly.

NOTES: Giants OF Angel Pagan hit a three-run homer in the sixth off Eddie McKiernan. ... Trout, the 2012 American League Rookie of the Year, was the only regular in Angels manager Mike Scioscia's lineup. He went 1 for 2 and drew an RBI walk in the fifth off Chad Gaudin, who replaced Zito.
