Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - C.J. Wilson tossed 6 1/3 solid innings and
received support from a trio of home runs that helped the Los Angeles Angels
of Anaheim to a 5-4 victory over Oakland that prevented the Athletics from a
three-game series sweep.
The Angels grabbed a 4-2 lead on sixth-inning homers by Mike Trout and Mark
Trumbo, with Howie Kendrick clubbing a solo shot of his own earlier in the
game as part of a 3-for-4 day. Trout added a triple while scoring twice as
Anaheim halted a four-game losing streak.
Wilson (3-0) survived five walks to limit the A's to a pair of runs on six
hits over his stint, while Ernesto Frieri snuffed out a late Oakland comeback
effort in registering the final five outs for his fourth save of the year.
All three Anaheim homers came against Tommy Milone (3-3), who was dealt the
loss despite matching a career high with 10 strikeouts over seven innings of
work. The left-hander was reached for four runs on seven hits.
Adam Rosales went 3-for-4 with an RBI single to pace Oakland offensively in
the setback, the A's first in six meetings with the Halos this year.
