ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Albert Pujols and the Los Angeles Angels caught up with Bartolo Colon on Sunday. Mike Trout, Pujols and Raul Ibanez hit consecutive home runs off Colon in the first inning and the Angels routed the New York Mets 14-2. "Anytime you can hit three home runs in a row, thats pretty special. Ive been through that before in my career," Pujols said. "Everybody knows what Bartolo is going to do -- 95 per cent of his pitches are fastballs and he pounds the strike zone." Hank Conger also went deep against Colon, who won the AL Cy Young Award in 2005 with the Angels. Over the previous four seasons, he was 6-1 with a 1.75 ERA in nine starts against the Angels. "Hes had our number, but today wasnt his day," Pujols said. "Hes a guy whos aggressive in the strike zone and we executed our game plan pretty well. If you look at last year, it seemed like every time we faced him he pretty much pitched seven or eight strong innings. So we wanted to get the jump on him early." The Angels also hit a pair of doubles in the first inning against Colon (1-2). Colon gave up nine runs and 11 hits in five innings, allowing at least one hit to every batter in the Angels starting lineup after pitching seven scoreless innings last Tuesday night in Atlanta. "At that moment, youre not thinking: Why is this happening? Its just part of the game," Colon said through a translator. "Everything felt all right. They just felt a little bit better than me." The four homers and nine earned runs against the 40-year-old Colon equaled a career worst in both categories. "Even though Bartolos had our number, it seems like all the runs we scored off him today were the ones weve needed the last two years off of him," Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson said. "Hes absolutely dominated us, and today was a complete aberration. Ive never seen him get hit like that before in person." Wilson (2-1) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings, striking out nine and walking three. Mets third baseman David Wright and second baseman Daniel Murphy were ejected in the top of the seventh by plate umpire Toby Basner. Wright and Murphy were called out on strikes earlier in the game. Both took exception after Basner called out Travis dArnaud at-bat. It was the fourth career ejection for Wright and the first for Murphy. "Im not going to comment on the umpires. Im not going to get into any more trouble than Im already in. Ive said my peace down on the field and Im just going to leave it at that," Wright said. "We have each others backs. And when something happens to one of us, it happens to all of us. There were some disagreements. Its frustrating," he said. Wilson got seven of his strikeouts on called strikes. "You cant really get a scouting report on the umpires and try to change too much with that. You have to pitch to the hitters," Wilson said. "But it wasnt like the guy had some crazy strike zone. Its just that they were up there looking for pitches that I wasnt throwing, which is why they took the strike three calls." During the singing "God Bless America" in the seventh-inning stretch, Mets manager Terry Collins stood next to Basner at home plate. The two could be seen chatting. The Angels came out swinging and got all three of their homers in a span of seven pitches. Trout drove his fourth of the season into the centre field trees with one out and Pujols hit his third into the left field bullpen. Ibanez, who hit a tying, three-run shot off closer Jose Valverde in the ninth inning Saturday night for his 2,000th career hit, connected against Colon before the Angels added another run on doubles by Kole Calhoun and Ian Stewart. Stewart later homered. NOTES: The Angels hit three straight homers for the first time since July 27, 2009, when Juan Rivera, Kendrys Morales and Mike Napoli did it. ... Colon was the first Mets pitcher to yield three in a row since June 8, 2012, at Yankee Stadium, when Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones connected against Johan Santana.

Cheap Shoes Free Shipping Worldwide . The South Africa international, who rejoined the club last month on loan from Tottenham, opened the scoring in the sixth minute with a powerful shot into the roof of the net.We are at that point of the NFL season that reality has arrived. Each team has played at least 10 games and after this much time and this much football, each organization realizes they are either refining, retooling or rebuilding. 1. Refining - Youre in the hunt for the playoffs and from week to week just trying to improve a little bit to make a big difference. 2. Re-tooling - Youre a good team but not great. You still have problems and aspirations but to conquer the problem and reach the aspirations, a specific change still has to happen.3. Rebuilding - Youre not a playoff team and the talent level is the reason why. Just not good enough. AFC East - At 7-3, New England is going to win the division. Truth is, they should be 8-2 as Luke Kuechly interfered in the end zone. To me, Buffalo and the Jets are refining. Both depend on continued progressive improvement of their quarterbacks, EJ Manuel in Buffalo and Geno Smith in New York. Miami is rebuilding. At 5-5, they are tied with the Jets for second but must look at themselves inside and out before they will be a championship team. AFC North - The Bengals are on their way. At 7-4, they should win the division and being undefeated at home, all games have meaning for the rest of the season. At 4-6, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and even Baltimore are rebuilding. To become a wild card team, each of the three must win their six remaining games to get at least 10 wins. Very unlikely. AFC South - The Colts are going to win the division and nobody in the AFC South is going to catch them. Tennessee has four wins and no Jake Locker. Houston has two wins and no quarterback consistency. And with one win, Jacksonville just doesnt want to be relocated to Los Angles or London. All three are rebuilding for 2014. AFC West - This is a very interesting division as the 4-6 Chargers could be one team to end up 10-6 and in the playoffs. Kansas City and Denver are on their way, especially the 9-1 Broncos are close to being at Sports Authority Field (Mile High Stadium) through out the playoffs. There are two competitive obstacles and hurdles in the next two weeks (at New England and at Kansas City). Oakland is an unknown, rebuilding team but by the end of this year, their salary cap problems should be behind them and that is significant. NFC East - I would not be surprised at all if the Eagles won the division with the Giants a close second. Philadelphia has found a quarterback in Nick Foles and this week is their bye week. With five games to go, the Eagles control their football destiny. The Giants have very quietly won four in a roww and if they can beat Dallas this week, they can catch up significantly in head-to-head division games.dddddddddddd Dallas is running out of healthy players on defence. Of the 11 penciled in as starters during training camp, the Cowboys may have only four left depending on linebacker Sean Lee. Washington is 3-7 with San Francisco up next. If they win the next six games, that means a 9-7 record and no playoffs. All four teams in the NFC East are rebuilding but someone has to win the division! NFC North - The only team that is rebuilding in this division is the Vikings. At 2-8, they are looking at a quarterback in the draft and how to keep Adrian Peterson effective for a few more years. In Green Bay, the question is how fast can Aaron Rodgers recover from a broken Collerbone? Problem is, that if he does not make it back soon, the 5-5 Packers could be close to out of the playoffs. Detriot and Chicago are the unknowns. Both are just refining from week to week and when you compare schedules, both are relatively easy. With the unknown of Rodgers health, this division is an unknown, but I lean to the Lions to win it all. NFC South - Its a two-team race between the Saints and Panthers. The two key dates are the head-to-head matchups December 8 at New Orleans and December 22 at Carolina. The Panthers are only one game behind the Saints and have won two close games over the 49ers and Patriots. Both are playoff teams that may be playing their best right now. Atlanta will be back when they get all their starters back. Next year will be a bounce back season but this season is done at 2-8. Tampa Bay is improving and as crazy as it may sound to some, I would not fire head coach Greg Schiano. He has his quarterback in Mike Glennon and will have his top running back Doug Martin and top guard Carl Nicks back next year. And Darrelle Revis will have a second recovery year under his knee. Stay the course if youre the Bucs. NFC West - The only team that is rebuilding in this division is St. Louis and outside of quarterback not even that much. With Percy Harvin back and only one close loss in Indianapolis, Seattle is close to rapping up the division soon. The Seahawks at home for two playoff games is lethal. They still have three tough games left(at New 0rleans, the 49ers and an improving Arizona team), but the Seahawks are looking good in December. The 49ers are up and down and the Cardinals have to win on defence. All of the top three teams are refining and improving. What was a poor division when the Seahawks made the playoffs at 7-9 is now one of the strongest. ' ' '
