ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Brandon Moss tied a career high with five RBIs, including his second homer in two games, and the Oakland Athletics extended their winning streak to seven games with an 11-5 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.

Moss finished with four hits. His other five-RBI game was on Sept. 29 against Seattle, when he hit a game-ending, three-run homer in the 10th inning to give Oakland a 7-4 victory. It came during a season-ending six-game winning streak that propelled the A’s to their first AL West title since 2006.

Tommy Milone (2-0) threw 106 pitches over five innings, allowing four runs, seven hits and three walks while striking out five.

Joe Blanton (0-2) was charged with six runs and 10 hits in five-plus innings and did not record a strikeout in his second outing with his new club.
