Angels hit 4 HRs off Colon in 14-2 rout of Mets
LA ANGELS 14, NY METS 2

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Albert Pujols and the Los Angeles Angels
caught up with Bartolo Colon on Sunday.

Mike Trout, Pujols and Raul Ibanez hit consecutive home runs off
Colon in the first inning and the Angels routed the New York
Mets 14-2.

"Anytime you can hit three home runs in a row, that's pretty
special. I've been through that before in my career," Pujols
said. "Everybody knows what Bartolo is going to do - 95 percent
of his pitches are fastballs and he pounds the strike zone."

Hank Conger also went deep against Colon, who won the AL Cy
Young Award in 2005 with the Angels. Over the previous four
seasons, he was 6-1 with a 1.75 ERA in nine starts against the
Angels.

"He's had our number, but today wasn't his day," Pujols said.
"He's a guy who's aggressive in the strike zone and we executed
our game plan pretty well. If you look at last year, it seemed
like every time we faced him he pretty much pitched seven or
eight strong innings. So we wanted to get the jump on him
early."

The Angels also hit a pair of doubles in the first inning
against Colon (1-2).

Colon gave up nine runs and 11 hits in five innings, allowing at
least one hit to every batter in the Angels' starting lineup
after pitching seven scoreless innings last Tuesday night in
Atlanta.

"At that moment, you're not thinking: `Why is this happening?'
It's just part of the game," Colon said through a translator.
"Everything felt all right. They just felt a little bit better
than me."

The four homers and nine earned runs against the 40-year-old
Colon equaled a career worst in both categories.

"Even though Bartolo's had our number, it seems like all the
runs we scored off him today were the ones we've needed the last
two years off of him," Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson said. "He's
absolutely dominated us, and today was a complete aberration.
I've never seen him get hit like that before in person."

Wilson (2-1) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings,
striking out nine and walking three.

Mets third baseman David Wright and second baseman Daniel Murphy
were ejected in the top of the seventh by plate umpire Toby
Basner.

Wright and Murphy were called out on strikes earlier in the
game. Both took exception after Basner called out Travis
d'Arnaud at-bat.

It was the fourth career ejection for Wright and the first for
Murphy.

"I'm not going to comment on the umpires. I'm not going to get
into any more trouble than I'm already in. I've said my peace
down on the field and I'm just going to leave it at that,"
Wright said.

"We have each others' backs. And when something happens to one
of us, it happens to all of us. There were some disagreements.
It's frustrating," he said.

Wilson got seven of his strikeouts on called strikes.

"You can't really get a scouting report on the umpires and try
to change too much with that. You have to pitch to the hitters,"
Wilson said. "But it wasn't like the guy had some crazy strike
zone. It's just that they were up there looking for pitches that
I wasn't throwing, which is why they took the strike three
calls."

During the singing "God Bless America" in the seventh-inning
stretch, Mets manager Terry Collins stood next to Basner at home
plate. The two could be seen chatting.

The Angels came out swinging and got all three of their homers
in a span of seven pitches. Trout drove his fourth of the season
into the center field trees with one out and Pujols hit his
third into the left field bullpen.

Ibanez, who hit a tying, three-run shot off closer Jose Valverde
in the ninth inning Saturday night for his 2,000th career hit,
connected against Colon before the Angels added another run on
doubles by Kole Calhoun and Ian Stewart.

Stewart later homered.

NOTES: The Angels hit three straight homers for the first time
since July 27, 2009, when Juan Rivera, Kendrys Morales and Mike
Napoli did it. ... Colon was the first Mets pitcher to yield
three in a row since June 8, 2012, at Yankee Stadium, when
Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones connected against
Johan Santana.
