ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Tyson Ross allowed five hits in six strong innings to snap a three-start skid, Josh Reddick homered and Seth Smith hit a two-run double in the Oakland Athletics' 5-0 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.
Smith also doubled and scored on Josh Donaldson's sacrifice fly for the A's, who have won five of their last six road games and four straight at Angel Stadium. Kurt Suzuki drove in another run in Oakland's eighth win in 12 games overall, moving four games ahead of big-budget Los Angeles in the AL West standings.
Dan Haren (1-4) yielded six hits and four runs during another poor start for the Angels, who were shut out for the eighth time in 31 games.
Albert Pujols went 1 for 4 with an eighth-inning single, drawing scattered boos as his batting average improved to .197.
Ross (2-3) carved up the struggling Angels before three relievers contributed one scoreless inning apiece.
