DENVER (MLB) — Rockies pitcher Alex White can be excused if he never wants to see Angels veteran Torii Hunter again.

Hunter hit a pair of two-run homers and finished with six RBIs as the Angels sent the Rockies to their third straight loss, 7-2, Friday night at Coors Field in the opener of a three-game Interleague Play series in front of 41,814.

With the exception of the two ill-fated pitches to Hunter, in the third and fifth innings — both behind Mike Trout singles — White (2-4) pretty much matched Angels lefty C.J. Wilson (7-4).

However, the Rockies didn’t have a game-turner like Hunter, who increased his homer total to eight. Wilson, able to stay in the game longer because he had the lead, held the Rockies to one run on five hits and struck out nine in eight innings. READ MORE>>>
