OAKLAND, CA - C.J. Wilson pitched seven innings of one-run ball for his career-best 17th win, and the Los Angeles Angels became the first team in nearly four months to beat Jarrod Parker in a 12-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Monday night.
Kole Calhoun had two of his three RBIs during a five-run fifth inning that chased Parker (11-7), who was 9-0 in 19 starts since a loss at Texas on May 22. It was the longest unbeaten streak by an A's starting pitcher since Hall of Famer Lefty Grove went 21 in a row in 1931.
Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo each hit a two-run homer in the eighth.
Wilson (17-6) struck out six and walked three while giving up four hits. He extended his career-best winning streak to nine and is unbeaten in his last 13 starts.
