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.

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.
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.

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.
