Trumbo's HR wins it for Angels in 13th

Dramatic finish helps Los Angeles complete 3-game sweep

ASSOCIATED PRESS

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Mark Trumbo homered leading the bottom of the 13th inning and Albert Pujols doubled home two runs, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-3 victory over Detroit today for their second straight series sweep of the Tigers.

Detroit lefty Phil Coke (0-2) intentionally walked Pujols with two outs and the bases empty in the 12th before striking out Josh Hamilton on three pitches. But Trumbo drove a 3-1 pitch into the top part of the double-decker bullpen in left field for his second homer of the season.

Jerome Williams (1-0) got the victory with three innings of two-hit relief.

Angels lefty C.J. Wilson allowed three runs and five hits in six innings, struck out four and walked four. He gave up a two-run homer to Prince Fielder that tied the score 3-all in the fifth after a leadoff walk to Torii Hunter.
