ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Albert Pujols hit two home runs and Jered Weaver won his eighth straight start, leading the Los Angeles Angels over the Texas Rangers 6-2 Tuesday night.
Mike Trout also homered as Los Angeles beat the AL West leaders for the second straight day. The charging Angels and Rangers have two games left in the series.
Weaver (14-1) gave up two runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings. He became the eighth AL pitcher since 1921 to win at least six games without a loss in July.
Derek Holland (7-6) took the loss. Earlier in the day, Texas acquired Chicago Cubs ace Ryan Dempster in a deal shortly before the trade deadline.
