Hot-hitting Chris Gilson followed with a walk, stole second with Fuhs taking home on the throw to put the Angels up 1-0.
Zach Fulmer stroked a two-run home run to give the Angels a 3-0 lead after one inning.
More was added in the second inning, as Kyle Danner, Matt Huberty and Bryan Buhr started the inning with consecutive singles.
Fuhs followed with an RBI to bat in Danner on a fielder's choice. Gilson was hit by a pitch to reload the bases for Nick Omberg, who singled in both Huberty and Fuhs.
A double by Phil Doll scored Gilson to give the Angels a commanding 7-0 lead.
In the third inning, Danner singled to start the inning.
Huberty railed a double to put runners at second and third, in which Buhr walked to load the bases.
Gilson drove in Danner and Huberty with a single, while Doll doubled to score Buhr for the 10-0 advantage.
Offensively for the Angels, Huberty hit for a perfect 3-3 with a double, Danner was 2-4, Doll 2-4 and Fulmer had a two-run homer in four at bats.
Huberty started on the mound and went the first six innings, giving up five hits and striking out nine.
