OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Bartolo Colon took a shutout into the seventh inning, four Oakland players hit home runs and the Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 10-4 on Tuesday night. Colon extended his scoreless streak to a career-high 22 1-3 innings as the A's snapped a three-game losing streak and moved a half-game ahead of the Angels into second place in the AL West. Jonny Gomes, Derek Norris, Adam Rosales and Josh Reddick hit home runs and accounted for eight RBIs for the A's. Jemile Weeks also drove in a run. Colon (9-8) allowed four hits over seven innings. He did not walk a batter and struck out five. Erick Aybar hit a two-run homer, Mike Trout hit a home run and Maicer Izturis drove in a run for the Angels, who lost for the fifth time in seven games. C.J. Wilson (9-8) gave up six runs -- three earned -- and nine hits in five innings. He walked five and struck out four. Trout became the fifth major leaguer to hit a home run on his 21st birthday, joining Ted Williams, Frank Robinson, Alex Rodriguez and Jason Heyward. He is the youngest ever to produce a 20-homer, 30-stolen base season. Gomes set the tone early, hitting his 12th home run, a solo shot with one out in the first. The A's parlayed a fielding error by third baseman Alberto Callaspo into four runs -- one earned -- in the third. Norris, Rosales and Weeks all drove in runs. Gomes added an RBI single in the fifth and back-to-back home runs by Norris, a two-run shot, and Rosales in the sixth made it 9-0. Izturis singled home a run, unearned as a result of second baseman Weeks' throwing error, in the seventh to end Colon's scoreless streak. Reddick added his team-high 25th home run in the seventh to make it 10-1. NOTES: A's IF Cliff Pennington (left elbow tendinitis) was activated from the DL and RHP Pedro Figueroa was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento. ... Angels OF Torii Hunter has hit safely in 15 of his last 16 games. ... RHP Zack Greinke (0-1, 5.14) makes the start for the Angels on Wednesday. Greinke is 2-0 in seven games in Oakland. ... RHP Dan Straily (0-0, 1.50) makes the start, the second of his career, for the A's. ... Wilson had not allowed a home run in his first 17 appearances (four starts) in Oakland. ... The Angels' bullpen has allowed 27 runs in 24 1-3 innings through nine games of the road trip.
