DENVER -- The Angels knocked around Chad Bettis early with four home runs in the first three frames, propelling Los Angeles to its third straight double-digit showing and a 10-2 win over the Rockies in Tuesday's series opener at Coors Field.
Albert Pujols set the tone in the first with a three-run shot for his 54th career Interleague homer -- the most in Major League history. Mike Trout and Matt Joyce followed suit by going deep in the second, and former Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta knocked Bettis (4-4) out with a two-run homer in third, which gave the Angels a 10-0 advantage.
