Recap


Angels 7, Rockies 2:
Torii Hunter hit two home runs and drove in six and C.J. Wilson threw eight innings of one-run ball as the Angels opened an interleague series at Colorado with a victory.

Wilson (7-4) won for the third time in four starts, holding the Rockies to one run on five hits while striking out nine. He has allowed only two earned runs and 13 hits in 28 innings over his past four outings.

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 and scored three runs in the leadoff spot for Los Angeles, twice reaching ahead of Hunter's home runs. 

Hunter drove a two-run shot to center in the third and hit a bomb that nearly cleared the seats and made its way onto the concourse in left in the fifth. It marked the 17th multi-homer game of his career.

Both of Hunter's blasts came against Rockies starter Alex White (2-4), who struck out six but allowed four runs on eight hits over six innings. Hunter added a two-run single in the ninth against reliever Esmil Rogers.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Angels are 7-2 all-time at Coors Field. … Hunter has compiled six or more RBIs six times in his career. His career high is seven, which he has done twice. … Hunter is the third Angels player with a multi-homer game this week, joining Kendrys Morales (Monday) and Mark Trumbo (Tuesday). … Wilson has not allowed more than six hits in an outing this season. … Colorado 1B Todd Helton returned to the lineup after leaving Tuesday's game and missing Wednesday's game with a stiff back. He went 1-for-4.
