Athletics Vs. Angels Final Score: Oakland Holds On For 2-1 Win

The Oakland Athletics hosted the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night for the first game of a three-game series at the O.co Coliseum. The A's stayed in the win column with a 2-1 victory over their visitors. Thanks to the Seattle Mariners, the A's also managed to gain a game on the first-place Texas Rangers.

The A's opened the scoring in the bottom of the second inning, when they were able to score on a double-play grounder from Kurt Suzuki. They added their second run in the bottom of the third on an RBI single from Kila Ka'aihue.

Mike Trout cut the Oakland lead to 2-1 with an RBI double in the top of the fifth, but the Angels would go quietly the rest of the day, held down by the Oakland bullpen.

Tom Milone was great for Oakland, going seven strong innings and allowing just five hits and one walk. Josh Reddick had a two-hit game and Daric Barton and Seth Smith each drew two walks in the game.
