Calhoun, Pujols Hit 2 HR’s Each As Angels Beat Mariners 10-3

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kole Calhoun and Albert Pujols both homered twice, Mike Trout also went deep, and the LosAngeles Angels beat the Seattle Mariners 10-3 Saturday night.

Calhoun, Trout and Pujols hit consecutive home runs to lead a six-run first inning for the Angels against Seattle starter Taijuan Walker and handed the Mariners their ninth loss in 11 games.

Tyler Skaggs (3-3) allowed three runs on eight hits in six innings for Los Angeles, striking out seven and walking one.

Walker (4-10) hit Yunel Escobar on the hand with the first pitch and Calhoun sent a 3-2 pitch over the right-field wall. Trout, who entered 8 for 10 in his career against Walker, then hit his 27th homer and Pujols followed with his shot to make it 4-0.

Andrelton Simmons had an RBI double and Carlos Perez added a run-scoring single to cap the inning.

Pujols’ 28th homer of the season, a two-run shot in the second, gave him 588 for his career to move past Frank Robinson into ninth place on the all-time list.
