CHICAGO (AP) - Josh Hamilton hit two home runs, Albert Pujols also connected and the Los Angeles went deep a season-high five times in a 13-2 rout of the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night.

Mark Trumbo and Brendan Harris also homered for the Angels.

All five of the Angels' home runs were no-doubters. They hit a pair during a five-run first inning and then followed with three more in a six-run fifth, providing more than enough support for C.J. Wilson (9-6).

The Angels have won 11 of 14. Once 12 games under .500, they are now within two games of the break-even mark - since June 12, they have the best record in baseball at 17-8.

The Cubs had their four-game winning streak snapped, a day after they hit five home runs to beat the Angels 7-2.
