ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Mark Trumbo hit a three-run homer and C.J. Wilson pitched into the seventh inning to beat the Texas Rangers for the first time, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 6-5 victory on Friday night.
Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun had RBI singles during a five-run fourth inning for the Angels, who have won 11 of 14 late in their lost season. Trumbo capped the rally with his 30th homer.
Trout had three hits as Los Angeles rallied from an early three-run deficit to snap Texas' seven-game winning streak in the division rivalry, beating the Rangers for just the third time in 13 meetings this season.
Alex Rios and Elvis Andrus homered for the Rangers, who began the day with a half-game lead on Oakland atop the AL West.
