HOUSTON -- Joe Blanton pitched seven sharp innings, and Howie Kendrick and Chris Iannetta both homered to give the Los Angeles Angels a 7-2 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday.

Alberto Callaspo and Erick Aybar drove in two runs apiece in a big fourth inning to help Los Angeles to its fifth straight win.

Blanton (2-10) tied season lows with three hits and two runs, pitching six scoreless innings before a two-run home run by Brett Wallace in the seventh.

Kendrick's solo homer came in the fifth, Iannetta tacked on two with a home run in the eighth, and Josh Hamilton doubled and likely robbed Houston of two home runs with big defensive plays.

Houston starter Jordan Lyles (4-3) was done in by a four-run fourth inning by the Angels.
