OAKLAND — Mike Trout homered and drove in three runs, Johnny Giavotella hit a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning and the Los Angeles Angels held on to beat the A's 6-3 on Wednesday night.

Trout hit his fifth home run with two outs in the third then doubled in two with the bases loaded in the seventh to help the Angels pull away and end a two-game losing skid.

Erick Aybar added a two-run single as Los Angeles matched its second-highest run in two weeks despite losing first baseman Albert Pujols to a leg injury in the sixth.

Marcus Semien had three hits and scored twice for Oakland. The A's have lost five of six.

Pujols left the game with tightness in his left hamstring after singling leading off the sixth.
