ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Stephen Vogt hit his first home run of the season, a two-run shot against Jered Weaver, and the Oakland Athletics increased their AL West lead over the Los Angeles Angels to 3 1/2 games with a 7-1 victory Wednesday night.

Tommy Milone (4-3) allowed a run and six hits in 6 2-3 innings with four strikeouts and two walks. The left-hander is 4-0 with a 2.00 ERA in his last seven starts.

Weaver (7-5) gave up four runs and six hits through 5 1-3 innings in his 14th start, matching his shortest outing of the season.

Both center fielders made home run-saving catches - Mike Trout robbing Yoenis Cespedes to end the first inning and Coco Crisp pulling back Josh Hamilton's drive leading off the second.
