OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Sonny Gray ended a monthlong losing streak, pitching into the ninth inning and leading the Oakland Athletics over the Los Angeles Angels 5-3 Friday night in a matchup of AL West rivals.

Coco Crisp hit his 15th career leadoff home run and Stephen Vogt added a solo shot for Oakland in the opener of a three-game series. Sam Fuld hit a go-ahead triple in the sixth inning and the A's pulled within one game of the division-leading Angels.

Mike Trout and Josh Hamilton homered for the Angels

Gray (13-7) allowed three runs and six hits over 8 1-3 innings. Sean Doolittle recorded the final two outs for his 19th save, fanning pinch-hitter Chris Iannetta with the bases loaded to end it.

Reliever Jason Grilli (1-2) gave up Fuld's key hit.
