ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Albert Pujols, Erick Aybar and Mike Trout each homered, Jered Weaver extended his scoreless-innings streak against Oakland to 24 2-3, and the Los Angeles Angels came out of the All-Star break with a 4-1 victory over the Athletics on Friday night.
Weaver (4-5) allowed four hits in 6 2-3 innings while striking out a season-high eight and walking four. The previous club record for scoreless innings against the A's was 21, by Bob Lee in 1964-65.
Last season, Weaver gave up a solo homer to Seth Smith over 30 2-3 innings while going 3-0 in four starts against the A's. Since 2011, the right-hander has dominated the A's with a 7-1 record in 10 starts.
Ernesto Frieri earned his 23rd save in 25 chances on his 28th birthday.
