Recap: Chicago Cubs vs. LA Angels

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - One night after the Cubs went deep five times, Los Angeles turned the trick in a 13-2 victory over Chicago in the back end of a brief two-game interleague series.

Josh Hamilton slammed a pair of homers and drove in five, Albert Pujols and Brendan Harris each provided a two-run blast and Mark Trumbo added a solo shot for the Angels, who won for the fourth time in their last six.

"The last two or three weeks I've been swinging the bat a lot better," Hamilton said. "It feels good. End the first half strong and keep it going in the second half."

Mike Trout finished 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, scored twice and drove in a run, while C.J. Wilson (9-6) allowed a run on four hits with six strikeouts over seven solid innings.

Cody Ransom picked up two hits, including a solo homer for the Cubs, whose four-game win streak came to a screeching halt. Anthony Rizzo had an RBI single in the rout.

Jeff Samardzija (5-9) lasted just 4 2/3 frames, touched for nine runs and as many hits with five strikeouts and two walks.

Chicago picked up a run in the fourth as Ransom stroked a leadoff double and scored on a Rizzo single, but the Halos struck back with six in the fifth to take an 11-1 advantage on a two-run blast by Pujols followed by a solo shot from Hamilton, a two-run homer from Harris and a bases-loaded walk to Pujols.

"Teams like that take advantage of you when you're not doing what you want to do," Samardzija said. "A lot of this game is rhythm and if can't get into a rhythm right out of the gates then you're going to be battling all game."

Los Angeles added single runs in the eighth and ninth on a Hamilton groundout and Erick Aybar's sacrifice fly.

Ransom's shot to left center in the bottom of the ninth capped the scoring.

The Angels broke out early, producing five runs in their first turn at the plate after an RBI double from Trout, three-run homer by Hamilton and a Trumbo solo blast.
