ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Garrett Richards allowed five hits over seven innings to extend his personal winning streak to seven decisions as the Los Angeles Angels handed the Texas Rangers their sixth consecutive loss, 3-0 on Friday night.

Mike Trout provided Richards all the run support he needed with a solo home run in the fourth inning, his 22nd of the season.

Richards (11-2) is unbeaten in his last eight starts and the right-hander has an ERA of 1.27 during that span.

Albert Pujols and Erick Aybar had two hits each for Los Angeles, and Alex Rios had two for Texas.

Texas right-hander Nick Tepesch (3-5) retired the first 10 batters he faced before Trout sent a 1-0 sinker 418 feet to center field for the game's first run. Tepesch allowed two runs in the seventh.

The Rangers left eight men on base, including runners in scoring position in six innings.
