ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Albert Pujols added David Prices name to a growing list of pitchers he has homered off during 13 power-packed years in the majors. The three-time NL MVP hit a pair of solo shots against the 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner, and Matt Shoemaker took a shutout into the seventh inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels over the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2 Sunday. "This is the same swing Ive been taking the last couple of weeks, and nothing went my way," said Pujols, who ended an RBI drought of nine games and 39 at-bats Saturday night with a run-scoring double. "Today I got some hits, so I was just glad I was able to contribute and help our ballclub win. As long as you stay positive and do the things you need to do and dont try to kill yourself in the cage because youre 0 for 10, youll be fine. Ive been around this game long enough that I know what Im capable of doing." Pujols drove an 0-2 pitch over the centre-field fence in the first inning, then capped the scoring in the seventh with his 12th homer of the season and 504th of his career, tying Eddie Murray for 25th place. "Price is going to throw his game, but we had a game plan and we tried to execute it," said Pujols, who came in 0 for 7 against left-hander. "The same way that we do our scouting report, they do theirs, so he knows how to pitch us. We just needed to make adjustments, and thats what we did. He made a couple of mistakes and we took advantage. With a guy like him, you need to be aggressive, because hes only going to give you one or two good pitches in four at-bats." Price (4-4) became the 319th pitcher Pujols has homered off in the regular season. Price has allowed five homers on an 0-2 count in his career, and Pujols has hit 21 under those circumstances. "Thats where I wanted to throw it, but thats what great hitters do with pitches that are up in the zone," Price said. "Hes one of the best hitters to ever play this game." Shoemaker (2-1) was charged with a run and two hits in six-plus innings. He struck out six, five days after earning his first major league win with a 4-3 victory at Philadelphia. The 27-year-old right-hander was lifted after issuing his third walk, to James Loney leading off the seventh. "Shoe did an outstanding job today, and he did an outstanding job in Philly last week," Pujols said. "Anytime you get a guy like that whos not really a true starter, and he comes up here and helps us win a game and a series, its huge." Michael Morin relieved Shoemaker with a 5-0 lead and retired his first batter before Kevin Kiermaier hit his first big league homer -- a drive to left that kept carrying until it disappeared in the lower seats in the left-field corner. That ended a career-opening streak of nine scoreless innings by Morin. Price was charged with six runs -- five earned -- and 11 hits in 6 2-3 innings with seven strikeouts and no walks. He beat the Mariners 2-1 last Tuesday at Seattle with a complete game. The three-time All-Star, who has allowed no more than one walk in a franchise-record 13 consecutive starts dating to last season, went to a three-ball count on five Angels batters. But hes paid the price for his major league-best strikeout-to-walk ratio. Hes given up 78 hits, tying Philadelphias Cliff Lee for most in the majors. "Thats part of it," Price said. "I want those guys to put the ball in play because I have the utmost confidence in our defence. Youre going to give up your hits sometimes, and sometimes theyre going to be at guys." Howie Kendrick gave the Angels a 2-0 lead with a two-out RBI single in the third, and they increased the margin to 5-0 with three runs in the fourth after Price gave up three straight singles with none out. The third one was a drive by Grant Green over the head of left fielder Matt Joyce, scoring Erick Aybar. "Price is an All-Star, he throws 95-97 (mph), hes got great stuff," Angels catcher Chris Iannetta said. "So you dont try to be overly aggressive, because you can get yourself out on good pitches." Luis Jimenez followed Greens hit with a sacrifice bunt, and two more runs scored when third baseman Evan Longoria booted Collin Cowgills grounder near the bag for his third error of the season. NOTES: Price has allowed at least one home run in eight of his first 10 starts and 11 homers altogether, after giving up just two in his final 83 1-3 innings last season. ... Rays manager Joe Maddon has gotten at least seven innings from his starters in only two of the teams last 25 games -- and Price was the pitcher both times. ... Price caught Cowgill, Mike Trout and Kendrick looking at third strikes in the first inning. ... Despite C.J. Wilsons five-hit shutout Saturday, the Angels have a 4.52 ERA at home compared to 2.88 on the road. ... Pujols has 48 multihomer games and two this season.
