Hahn, A's cruise past Angels

Jun 21, 2015 - 1:58 AM Oakland, CA ( - Jesse Hahn tossed 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball and the Oakland Athletics evened their three-game series with the Los Angeles Angels with a 4-1 win on Saturday.

Hahn (5-5) improved to 3-0 in four starts this month, yielding just a run on four hits and four walks to help Oakland avenge Friday's 12-7 loss. Tyler Clippard finished the eighth inning for Hahn and earned a four-out save.

While June has been kind to Hahn, it has been rough on Angels starter Jered Weaver (4-8). Weaver was responsible for all four runs in 5 2/3 innings and lost his fourth straight start.

"It's frustrating," said Weaver. "We have a talented group of guys in here, it's just not going the way that we obviously want."

Stephen Vogt went 3-for-3 and drove in a run for Oakland, which improved to 5-2 over its last seven games.

"He's been as consistent a performer as anybody in the American League," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said of Vogt. "He's hitting lefties, he's getting big hits."

The Athletics got to Weaver in the first inning, scoring a run when Marcus Semien and Vogt hit consecutive doubles.

Hahn held the 1-0 lead until the top of the sixth, when Mike Trout's one-out single led to the game-tying run. Trout advanced to second on an Albert Pujols walk and scored when Erick Aybar singled to center.

But the A's found their bats a half-inning later, restored their lead and chased Weaver from the game. With Ben Zobrist on first and one out, Josh Reddick slapped a double the other way to the wall in left to make it 2-1. Two batters later, Brett Lawrie doubled in Reddick to end Weaver's afternoon.

Cam Bedrosian came on and gave up a pair of hits, but got out of the inning when Josh Phegley was thrown out at home plate. Phegley doubled in Lawrie and tried to score on Eric Sogard's single to left.
