Recap: Oakland vs. LA Angels

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Zack Greinke fired seven innings of one-run ball to lead the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to a 6-1 win over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday.

Greinke (4-2) scattered four hits and walked two while striking out four to pick up his third straight win.

"You could see it coming his last couple of starts, just finding the release point," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Greinke's start. "I thought he threw the ball exceptionally well."

"He was a lot better than we saw him last time," A's manager Bob Melvin said. "Just had us off-balanced all night."

Alberto Callaspo went 2-for-3 with two RBI and scored once and Mike Trout had two hits and drove in a run for the Angels, winners in 11 of their last 14.

Brandon Moss stroked a solo homer in the seventh inning for the A's, who have lost two straight on the heels of a nine-game winning streak.

Jarrod Parker (9-8) was pegged with the loss after giving up two runs on eight hits over seven frames. Parker struck out five without issuing a walk in his first loss since Aug. 14.

The Angels plated one in both the fifth and the sixth to take a 2-0 lead.

In the fifth, Callaspo singled to right, moved to third on Chris Ianneta's single then scored when Trout singled to center.

In the sixth, Kendrys Morales and Howie Kendrick hit back-to-back singles before moving up on Aybar's single. Callaspo followed with a sacrifice fly to center field to bring home Morales.

Moss' solo shot in the seventh made it 2-1.

The Angels added a pair in both the eighth and the ninth.

In the eighth, Aybar ripped a double off the wall in left field to score Kendrick. Callaspo followed with a line drive single to right to push Aybar across.

In the ninth Morales doubled to left field to bring home Ianetta and Torii Hunter.

Game Notes

Aybar has a career .340 average in Oakland ... Greinke has pitched seven innings-or-more in six of his eight starts with the Angels and is 3-0 over five starts in Oakland ... The A's have hit homers in each of their last 11 games, but snapped a five-game streak where they hit at least two homers in a game.
