DENVER (AP) — Albert Pujols tied Willie Mays for fifth place on the career homer list with a two-run shot in the eighth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels rallied for a 5-3 win over the slumping Colorado Rockies.

Trailing 3-2, the 40-year-old Pujols lined a fastball from Carlos Estevez (1-3) into the empty seats in left for his 660th homer. The ball was quickly retrieved. It was his first homer since Aug. 4.

Pujols now trails only Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth and Alex Rodriguez on the career home run list.
