ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Mike Trout and Albert Pujols each hit one of the Angels' five home runs, and Los Angeles beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-2 on Monday night.

Trout went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and two runs, joining Alex Rodriguez as one of two players to score 100 runs five times before his age-25 season.

Pujols hit his 586th homer, tying Frank Robinson for ninth on the career list.

Kole Calhoun was a triple short of the cycle, and C.J. Cron homered among his three hits for the Angels.

Matt Shoemaker (9-13) allowed two runs and seven hits over seven innings. After giving up a two-run homer to Joey Votto in the first, Shoemaker settled in to win his third straight decision.

Dan Straily (10-7) allowed seven runs in 2 2/3 innings.
