ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Jered Weaver outpitched Jon Lester, Albert Pujols hit his 516th career homer and the Los Angeles Angels beat Oakland 4-0 Friday night, extend their AL West lead over the A's to three games.

A night after the Angels edged the Athletics 4-3 in 10 innings, they won with pitching and power.

Chris Iannetta hit a two-run shot despite a valiant effort by center fielder Coco Crisp for a 2-0 lead in the fifth, and that was enough for Weaver and the bullpen.

Weaver (15-7) threw three-hit ball for seven innings, striking out three and walking three. He escaped a bases-loaded jam in the sixth by retiring Josh Reddick on a flyball. Weaver is 8-1 over his last 14 starts.

Jon Lester (13-9) gave up two earned runs in six innings. He is 0-2 in his last three starts after going 7-0 with a 1.46 ERA over his previous 11 outings for Boston and Oakland.
