WASHINGTON (AP) -- Raul Ibanez delivered a tiebreaking three-run double as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning on a night that Mike Trout and Bryce Harper went a combined 2 for 8 with zero runs or RBIs in their first matchup as opponents, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Washington Nationals 4-2 Monday.

Los Angeles trailed 1-0 going into the eighth. But Albert Pujols -- who went 0 for 5, staying on 498 homers -- reached on the first of shortstop Ian Desmond's two errors in the inning, raising his season total to nine. Later, Erick Aybar's third hit of the night scored Pujols to even it.

After Tyler Clippard (1-2) walked the bases loaded, Ibanez doubled to left-center.

Fernando Salas (1-0) won with a hitless seventh.
