Pujols, Trumbo, Trout Batter Giants For 12 Runs

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Albert Pujols hit a three-run homer, Mark Trumbo added a three-run triple while driving in five runs, and Mike Trout matched his career high with four hits in the Los Angeles Angels’ 12-5 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.

C.J. Wilson (8-4) allowed season-highs of five runs and 10 hits, but the Angels backed him with their highest-scoring performance of the season.

Los Angeles battered Barry Zito (5-5) for eight runs on nine hits in just 3 1-3 innings, starting with Pujols’ first-inning homer before the pitcher had recorded an out.

In the California clubs’ first series at Angel Stadium since the 2002 World Series, the Angels moved back to a season-high five games over .500 with their eighth win in 11 games.
