ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Raul Ibanez hit consecutive home runs off Bartolo Colon in the first inning, setting the tone for the Los Angeles Angels’ 14-2 rout of the New York Mets on Sunday in the decisive game of their interleague series.
Hank Conger also went deep against Colon, who won the AL CY Young Award in 2005 with the Angels.
C.J. Wilson (2-1) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings with nine strikeouts and three walks. The Angels have scored 23 runs in the left-hander’s last two starts, including a 9-1 victory last Monday at Houston.
Colon (1-2) gave up nine runs and 11 hits in five innings, allowing at least one hit to every batter in the Angels’ starting lineup after pitching seven innings of six-hit ball last Tuesday during a 4-0 victory in Atlanta.
