    American League Game Summary - LA Angels of Anaheim at Oakland



    (Friday, July 26th)

    Final Score: Oakland 6, LA Angels of Anaheim 4

    Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Bartolo Colon is continuing to prove this season that age isn't a factor in winning ball games.

    The 40-year-old right-hander pitched six strong innings to help the Oakland Athletics to a 6-4 win over the Angels in the continuation of a four-game series.

    Colon (14-3) gave up seven hits, including a two-run homer to Mike Trout in the first inning, but won for the 11th time in his last 12 decisions. He moved to 8-0 in nine starts against AL West teams and has a nine-game winning streak against divisional foes, last losing July 17, 2012 against Texas.

    Coming off his third shutout of the year Sunday in Anaheim, Colon again dominated the Angels and moved to 12-6 lifetime against them. Colon, who pitched for the Angels from 2004-07, has surpassed Don Sutton's record of 13 wins in a season in which he turns 40-years-old. The only Athletic with more wins in that situation is Jack Quinn. He had 18 in 1928 and 15 in 1927.

    Jed Lowrie went 3-for-4 with a homer and drove in three runs. Stephen Vogt added a two-run shot for the AL West leaders, who bounced back from an 8-3 loss Thursday. They moved four games ahead of Texas in the division, the largest lead for the A's this season.

    Jerome Williams (5-7) surrendered six hits and four runs over five innings to drop his fifth consecutive decision, as the Angels lost for the seventh time in 11 games.

    Jerry Blevins issued a pair of walks in the ninth inning and Albert Pujols singled down the left field line to drive in two runs off closer Grant Balfour. Josh Hamilton struck out to end the game. That gave Balfour his 27th save.

    J.B. Shuck singled to start the game and then Trout homered to left-center on a 3-1 pitch.

    "I don't think stuff like that bothers him early in the game. He bounced back nicely," A's manager Bob Melvin said of Colon.

    Lowrie, who entered the game in a 4-for-36 slump, went deep to right-center in the bottom of the first.

    Eric Sogard singled in Josh Reddick in the second. Coco Crisp single, stole second and Lowrie followed with a two-run base hit to right past a diving Mark Trumbo.

    "We just couldn't overcome Jerome not being able to get out of the second inning," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Then he settled in and gave us three strong innings, but those guys kept playing and got some home runs that got us down."

    Vogt homered to right with Reddick aboard in the sixth.

    Game Notes

    The last major leaguer with at least 13 wins in a season of age 40 or higher is Jamie Moyer in 2008 (16) ... Colon is 8-1 following an A's loss this year and has won each of his last seven decisions in those situations ... Angels pitcher Kevin Jepsen, who celebrated his 29th birthday Friday, threw a scoreless eighth inning.
