TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- With the uncertain status of Brandon Webb, newcomer Edwin Jackson's performance thus far this spring must be comforting for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The right-hander who was acquired in a trade with the Detroit Tigers in the offseason blanked the Los Angeles Angels on one hit
through three innings in Arizona's 4-1 victory on Thursday.

The right-hander has yet to give up a run in five innings this spring.

Jared Weaver regrouped from a rough first outing for the Angels, allowing one run on three hits and striking out two in three innings. Mike Napoli hit his third homer of the spring for Los Angeles. Chris Snyder homered for Arizona.

Jackson, an All-Star with the Tigers last year, will start the season as the Diamondbacks' No. 2 starter behind Dan Haren.
