ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Angels used eight pitchers, a franchise record for a nine-inning game, and increased their AL West lead over the Athletics to four. The deficit is Oakland's largest this season. The A's led the division by four on Aug. 9 before going on their current 6-13 slide. Their only hits were infield singles by Josh Donaldson in the first and fourth, and a single by former Ray Sam Fuld in the ninth.
