PHOENIX -

In a game where balls and strikes were briefly called from behind the pitcher's mound after an umpire was injured, Albert Pujols made his spring debut at first base for the Los Angeles Angels in a 6-1 loss Tuesday to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Pujols played the field for the first time since offseason surgery on his right knee. The slugger went 0 for 2.

Rickie Weeks, Aramis Ramirez and Sean Halton homered for the Brewers.

Pujols was hit by a pitch from Wily Peralta with two outs in the top of first inning. The ball deflected and broke plate umpire Seth Buckminster's hand.

Buckminster left the game along with umpire Anthony Johnson, who changed into home-plate gear. After a brief delay, with only two umpires left on the field, play resumed for four batters with Tim McClelland calling pitches from behind the mound.

Johnson returned to the field and McClelland shifted to third base three batters into the bottom of the first.
