DETROIT (AP) – Albert Pujols doubled, singled, scored a run and drove one in – all in an eight-run fifth inning – and the Los Angeles Angels routed the Detroit Tigers again, 14-8 on Tuesday night.
The Angels have won seven straight against Detroit, by a combined score of 48-17. C.J. Wilson (7-5) allowed five runs and seven hits in five innings for Los Angeles.
Rick Porcello (4-5) gave up seven runs and 10 hits in 4 1-3 innings. The Angels scored nine runs off him in two-thirds of an inning in April. This start looked better at first, but Los Angeles broke through in a big way in the fifth.
Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the third for the Tigers, but he also made two of Detroit’s six errors.
