Power surge helps Angels keep pace in wild-card race

(TSX / STATS) -- Kaleb Cowart and Albert Pujols hit three-run homers, and the Los Angeles Angels remained a half-game out of the second American League wild-card spot with a 10-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night at Angel Stadium.

Pujols blasted the 610th home run of his career in the seventh inning off reliever Nick Gardewine to surpass Sammy Sosa for the most home runs by a foreign-born player. His 19th home run of the season gave the Angels a 10-1 lead en route to their 10th win in the past 13 games.

Pujols now sits alone in eighth on the all-time homer list, two behind Jim Thome.
