DETROIT (AP) — Albert Pujols hit a tiebreaking double in the 10th inning and the Los Angeles Angels beat Detroit 3-1 on Thursday for their ninth straight victory over the Tigers.

Mike Trout had four hits and was in the middle of the decisive rally for the Angels, who completed a three-game sweep. Jered Weaver pitched seven strong innings in a tight duel with Detroit right-hander Doug Fister.

J.B. Shuck singled leading off the 10th against Phil Coke (0-5) and went to third on Trout’s single to right field. Pujols sent a drive to deep center, where Austin Jackson tried to make a difficult catch with his back to home plate.

The ball tipped off the webbing of Jackson’s glove, hit the wall and trickled to the ground.

After an intentional walk to Howie Kendrick loaded the bases, Josh Hamilton made it 3-1 with a sacrifice fly.
