Angels Hold Off Oakland Comeback, Power Past Athletics

By JANIE McCAULEY, AP Baseball Writer

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kole Calhoun hit a solo home run in the second inning, Albert Pujols had a two-run double in the fourth and the Los Angeles held off the Oakland Athletics 10-7 on Monday.

Nick Buss added two sacrifice flies in the Angels’ seventh win in their last nine road games.

Angels starter Jered Weaver stayed in the game after he was hit in the back side by a line drive by Danny Valencia in the third — another scare for an Angels starter a day after Matt Shoemaker suffered a small skull fracture in Seattle and needed surgery to stop bleeding on his brain.

Khris Davis hit his 35th homer leading off the seventh to pull Oakland within 8-7, but his ninth-inning error in left field allowed Andrelton Simmons to score an insurance run.
