Torii Hunter drove in three runs, Joe Saunders pitched six-hit ball into the seventh inning and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Oakland Athletics 5-2 Monday night for their fifth win in seven games.
The California clubs met for the first time since April 8, when Nick Adenhart pitched six scoreless innings against the A's. The rookie right-hander was killed in a car accident hours later.
Mike Napoli had a career-high four hits and drove in two runs for the Angels, who got another strong start and seven strikeouts from Saunders (4-1), the ace of an injury-plagued staff.
Kurt Suzuki hit a solo homer in the seventh for the weary A's, who opened a nine-game homestand with their fourth loss in six games.
