ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) It took a milestone hit by Albert Pujols to give the Los Angeles Angels their first lead of the week.
Pujols drove a go-ahead, two-run homer into the seats in right-center in the sixth inning for career hit No. 2,992 and the Angels beat the San Francisco Giants 4-3 on Saturday night to snap an ugly four-game losing streak.
Mike Trout and Jefry Marte also went deep for the Angels, and Garrett Richards matched his career high with 11 strikeouts in six innings. The Giants struck out 17 times.
