Brown’s home player sent an ace to a 4: 2 victory over the slippery Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Seth Brown took the lead in the fifth inning and Oakland Athletics returned 4: 2 over the slipping Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.

After Jed Lowrie left with one out, Brown sent a quick ball from Chase Silseth (1-1) down the right line and got an A-2 lead. The Outfielder started a night batting of 0.186, but is 7:16 in the last four games since the month began a 4:39 drop.

All four home Browns came on the road this season and three took Athletics into the lead.

Lowrie also went deep and recorded two raids for Oakland, which failed four out of five. Sam Moll (1-0) won and Dany Jimenez caught his eighth hit.

Anthony Rendon had two hits and rode for the Angels, who lost the top four games in a row.

Oakland took a 1-0 lead in the first when Lowrie drove Silseth’s splitter into the right field. The Angels settled it at home half, when Shohei Ohtani took a step, stole another and returned home at Rendon Base, hitting the right.

Los Angeles led 2: 1 in the third match. Taylor Ward led with a double and scored a double Mike Trout.

Oakland increased their lead to 4-2 in the sixth game, with Luis Barrera scoring Kevin Smith’s sacrificial fly.


The Angels hit 13 times, seven of them. They remained untouched after Rendon’s double-out double in the fifth. Their only baserunner in the last four shifts was when Luis Rengifo walked sixth.


Silseth made six goalless shifts last Saturday in his major league debut in Oakland, but occasionally had problems in the second match with A. The right-hander allowed three raids and six hits in a 4 1/3 inning with six strikes.

Oakland right-hander Paul Blackburn narrowly missed the fifth victory of the season. He went 4 2/3 shifts and gave up two races for six hits with five strikes. He has allowed two rides or less in seven of the eight starts this season.


Athletics: Daulton Jefferies has been placed on injured due to irritation of the right hand nerve. Manager Mark Kotsay said the right-wingers have been diagnosed with chest discharge syndrome, but is looking for another opinion. Left-hander Kirby Snead got an option in Triple-A Las Vegas, while right-hander Jake Lemoine and left-hander Zach Logue were fired.

Angels: Ward hit the wall hard in the right field after catching Tony Kemp’s ball in the ninth inning and falling out of the game. Manager Joe Maddon said he was judged after the match. … C Max Stassi (COVID-19 list), LHP José Quijada (right oblique strain) and RHP Archie Bradley (left abdominal strain) will begin rehabilitation tasks in Class A Inland Empire on Saturday.


Athletics: RHP Frankie Montas (2-4, 3.67 ERA) is fourth in AL in the top (49) and is in fifth place in bets with 53.

Angels: RHP Michael Lorenzen (4-2, 3.57 ERA) have recorded good starts in four of this year’s six matches.
