ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Albert Pujols hit his AL-leading 25th home run, Kole Calhoun homered and drove in four runs and the Los Angeles Angels finished a dominant three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers with a 12-6 victory Sunday night.

Mike Trout celebrated his third straight starting nod for the AL All-Stars with one of seven run-scoring singles or sacrifice flies for the Angels in the first three innings.

Calhoun's three-run shot, his ninth, gave Los Angeles a 12-1 lead in the fifth, and a 25-1 advantage combined in the first five innings of the three games.

C.J. Wilson (7-6) allowed three runs in six innings, and the Los Angeles left-hander beat his former team for the second time in 10 starts.

Texas righty Colby Lewis (8-4) allowed 12 hits and 10 earned runs in four innings.
