ANAHEIM (AP) — Peter Bourjos had three hits and three RBIs, Mike Trout and Albert Pujols drove in two runs apiece, and the Los Angeles Angels slowed the worst start in franchise history with an 8-1 victory over Torii Hunter and the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.

Pujols had three hits and Brendan Harris added an early RBI double for the Angels, who had a season-high 16 hits. Their 5-10 start still matches the 1961 expansion team's miserable beginning.

Tommy Hanson and four relievers combined on a rocky 10-hitter for the beleaguered Angels pitching staff, giving up their only run with two outs in the ninth.

Hunter extended his hitting streak to 12 games after receiving a standing ovation in the former Los Angeles outfielder's first night back at Angel Stadium. Detroit has lost two straight.
