OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Mark Trumbo hit a home run for the third consecutive day, Howie Kendrick and Mike Trout also homered and the Los Angeles Angels ended a four-game losing streak, beating the Oakland Athletics 5-4 on Wednesday. C.J. Wilson (3-0) remained undefeated despite walking a season-high five hitters. He allowed two runs on six hits in 6 1-3 innings. Wilson struck out five and stranded six Oakland runners in scoring position. Josh Donaldson, Nate Freiman and Luke Montz each had an RBI double for the A's, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. Adam Rosales also drove in a run. Tommy Milone (3-3) gave up four runs on seven hits over seven innings. He did not walk a batter and matched his career high with 10 strikeouts. Milone has lost three consecutive starts. Kendrick gave the Angels a 1-0 lead when he homered over the center field fence with two outs in the second. Donaldson and Freiman hit back-to-back doubles to give the A's a 2-1 lead in the third but J.B. Shuck singled in a run to tie it in the fifth. Trout led off the sixth with a home run and Trumbo hit a ball off the top of the out-of-town scoreboard one out later. It was originally ruled a double but following a television review he was awarded the home run. Trout tripled to center -- Yoenis Cespedes slipped on the warning track -- and scored on Luis Pujols' sacrifice fly in the eighth to make it 5-2. Michael Kohn walked a hitter to lead off the eighth and was replaced by Scott Downs, who got an out and then gave up Montz's RBI double and Rosales' run-scoring single before exiting the game with an injury to his right side. Closer Ernesto Frieri came in to record the final five outs for his fourth save in five chances. The Angels avoided being swept by the A's in Oakland for the first time since June 29-July 1, 2004. The A's lost for the first time in 23 games against the Angels when scoring at least four runs. Frieri hit Cespedes to open the ninth but Hank Conger threw him out trying to steal. After Donaldson walked, Monday night hero Brandon Moss came up as a pinch hitter and flied out to left field. Frieri walked Josh Reddick but got pinch hitter Eric Sogard to foul out. NOTES: OF Coco Crisp (strained left hamstring) and LHP Brett Anderson (sprained right ankle) were both placed on the 15-day DL before the game. ... Montz and RHP Dan Straily were recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to fill their spots on the 25-man roster. ... The Angels recalled RHP Ryan Brasier from Triple-A Salt Lake City to replace LHP Michael Roth, who was optioned to Double-A Arkansas following Tuesday night's loss. ... RHP A.J. Griffin (2-2, 4.65) gets the start for the A's when they open a 10-game road trip with the New York Yankees on Friday night. ... The Angels send RHP Joe Blanton (0-4, 7.09) to the mound at home Thursday night against the Baltimore Orioles. ... The Angels used 18 pitchers in April, the most since August of 2000 and the most ever for April. ... The A's and Angels played a combined 10:11 in the first two games of the series, an Oakland record for a two-game stretch.
