Recap: Oakland vs. LA Angels

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Chris Ianetta had three hits, including a solo homer, and drove in three runs to lead the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to an 8-3 win over the Oakland Athletics on Monday.

Vernon Wells and Torii Hunter also homered for the Angels, winners in six of their last seven.

C.J. Wilson (11-9) gave up two runs on five hits over five innings to pick up the win.

"We've been playing some pretty good baseball," Wilson said. "Our bullpen's been really good the last couple of games and our starting pitchers are turning it around a little bit.

Josh Donaldson had two hits, including a homer, Chris Carter smacked a solo shot and Josh Reddick knocked in a run for the A's, who had a nine-game winning streak snapped.

Tommy Milone (11-10) was tagged with the loss after giving up five runs on 10 hits over three-plus innings.

"When he threw the ball over the plate, they were hitting it hard," A's manager Bob Melvin said.

Four consecutive singles by Erick Aybar, Alberto Callaspo, Vernon Wells and Iannetta gave the Angels a 2-0 lead in the second.

Hunter's leadoff homer in the third gave the Halos a three-run spread and Aybar's base hit later in the frame brought Howie Kendrick across to put the visitors up 4-0.

Wells cracked a leadoff homer in the fourth to push Los Angeles' lead to 5-0.

But the A's countered with a run of their own in the home fourth when Jonny Gomes doubled before scoring on Reddick's single to left field.

Donaldson led off the fifth with a solo blast to cut Oakland's deficit to 5-2.

The Angels added three more in the sixth. Wells walked before Iannetta crushed a two-run bomb to left-center field. Mike Trout then walked before stealing second and moved to third on Derek Norris' throwing error. Hunter followed with a sacrifice fly to push Trout across.

Carter sent one off the top of the fence in left-center field to make it 8-3 in the eighth.

Game Notes

Trout's stolen base was his 42nd of the season ... The Angels have had 10 or more hits an MLB-leading 67 times ... It was Milone's shortest outing of his career.
