DENVER — Mike Trout, Torii Hunter and Howie Kendrick each had three hits, and Albert Pujols homered and drove in four runs to lead the Angels to an 11-5 interleague victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday at Coors Field.

The balanced and relentless attack of the Angels, who racked up 15 hits, 14 of them singles, and scored in six of nine innings, offset the power of the Rockies, who hit five home runs, all solo shots, including two by right fielder Tyler Colvin.

Angels starter Dan Haren gave up 10 hits, including four homers, in 5 1/3 innings but weathered the 90-degree heat to gain the victory and improve to 4-6 despite tying a career high for homers allowed in a game.

Trout also scored three runs, drove in two runs, stole two bases and went from first to third on singles twice, and Hunter scored three runs, as the Angels improved to a major league-best 65-30 in interleague play since 2007 and cut the Texas Rangers’ American League West lead to three games.
