Perez pitches Rangers past Angels

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Martin Perez threw 6 1/3 quality innings to pitch the Texas Rangers over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 5-2, in the first of three games between the AL West rivals.

Perez (4-3) struck out seven and allowed two runs on four hits and four walks. The 22-year-old lefty pitched into the eighth inning last week against the Angels in a three-game series that saw Texas win each game with a walk-off home run.

Adrian Beltre capped that sweep with a solo home run and added another one Monday. Elvis Andrus chipped in a two-run triple and Jurickson Profar went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the victory, Texas' seventh in its last eight games.

Jerome Williams (5-8) was touched for five runs on six hits and three walks over 5 1/3 innings for the Angels, who fell to 2-8 against the Rangers this year and also lost second baseman Howie Kendrick to a hyperextended left knee.

The Angels went 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position and stranded 11. They left the bases loaded in the seventh inning, and J.B. Shuck flied out to the right-field wall to strand three more in the eighth.
