DENVER (AP) -- Torii Hunter homered twice and drove in six runs, leading the Los Angeles Angels over the Colorado Rockies 7-2 on Friday night. Rookie Mike Trout had three hits and scored three times and Albert Pujols had an RBI double to back C.J. Wilson, who struck out nine in eight innings. Todd Helton had two hits and Jordan Pacheco had an RBI triple for the Rockies, who have lost three straight. Showing no fear of pitching in hitter-friendly Coors Field, Wilson (7-4) retired his first 11 batters before Carlos Gonzalez reached on a bunt single. Wilson one over the minimum until the sixth, when he gave up two of his five hits. Alex White (2-4), bidding to win his third straight decision, allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings with six strikeouts and no walks. Hunter hit two-run homers in the third and fifth innings, raising his season total to eight with three in two games. He added a two-run single in the ninth off Esmil Rogers, and Pujols followed with a two-out RBI double. Marco Scutaro doubled in Colorado's run with two outs in the sixth. Pacheco's two-out triple in the ninth scored Helton to make it 7-2 NOTES: Hunter's was one RBI off his career-high, accomplished twice. ... Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki (groin strain) did some light running before batting practice. He is projected to return to the lineup when Colorado plays Detroit next weekend. ... The Angels will send RHP Dan Haren to the mound Saturday against Colorado. The Rockies haven't announced their starter, and it appears LHP Jeff Francis, their former ace, will be brought up from the minors.
