Angels Vs. Athletics Final Score: Halos Can't Muster Enough Offense In 2-1 Loss

The Los Angeles Angels found out earlier on Monday that they would be losing Vernon Wells for about two months. That was certainly a bad way to start the day, but things quickly went downhill from there with a 2-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics at the O.co Coliseum to stretch their losing streak to three games.

The A's opened the scoring in the bottom of the second inning, when they were able to score on a double-play grounder from Kurt Suzuki. They added their second run in the bottom of the third on an RBI single from Kila Ka'aihue.

Mike Trout cut the Oakland lead to 2-1 with an RBI double in the top of the fifth, but the Angels would go quietly the rest of the day, held down by the Oakland bullpen.

The Angels managed just five hits and one walk off of Oakland starter Tom Milone and were unable to reach base against either pitcher they faced from the A's bullpen. Halos starter Jerome Williams had a quality start of two runs over 6.1 innings of work. Williams allowed only five hits but also issued five walks to Oakland batters.

No Angels hitter reached base more than once and Trout's double was the only extra-base hit for Los Angeles.
