Recap: LA Angels vs. Texas

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Avenging his only loss this season, a defeat at the hands of the Rangers back in May, Jered Weaver's career mark against Texas in Anaheim remained unblemished Friday.

The 29-year-old tossed seven innings of one-run ball and won his sixth consecutive start, a 6-1 Angels triumph over the Rangers in the opener of a three-game set.

Weaver (12-1) scattered six hits and surrendered a walk, helping him move to 8-0 with a 2.16 ERA in 14 career starts against Texas in the Big A. The lanky right-hander moved 7-0 with a minuscule .067 ERA at home this season.

He lasted just 3 1/3 innings and gave up eight runs on 10 hits in a 13-6 loss to Texas on May 13.

"It was a battle going up against a lineup like that," Weaver said. "I got myself into jams and the defense helped me out."

Mark Trumbo smacked a solo homer for the Halos -- his eighth of the month --, who had lost five of their last seven contests coming in. For Trumbo, it's his 21st round-tripper and 47th RBI since May 25, which leads the majors.

Mike Trout added a solo shot, his seventh in July, and two runs scored. He's tallied a run in 12 straight games, one shy of tying Jim Edmonds' club record.

Derek Holland (6-5) was charged with six runs on nine hits and a walk in 6 2/3 innings for Texas, which fell to 3-3 on its eight-game road trip.

"Other than the fourth inning, Derek hung in there until the seventh. We had opportunities but we didn't deliver," Texas manager Ron Washington said.

With the game tied 1-1 after three innings of play, the Angels plated three runs in the fourth, another in the sixth and one more in the seventh to surge ahead.

Albert Pujols, who tallied three hits, led off the fourth with a double, advanced to third on Trumbo's base hit and scored on Howie Kendrick's groundout to shortstop. After Alberto Callaspo singled, Erick Aybar laced a double down the line in left to bring home Kendrick and Callaspo for a 4-1 advantage.

Trumbo pounded a homer over the wall in left-center to conclude an 11-pitch at-bat in the sixth, while Trout smacked a two-out opposite-field blast to right in the seventh.

Earlier, the teams exchanged runs in the opening frame as Elvis Andrus stroked a homer over the wall in left-center before Kendrick's RBI double in the home half tied the game. Pujols was thrown out at home on the play.
