ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Jerome Williams won his fourth straight decision since joining the Angels last month, and Torii Hunter homered and drove in three runs Saturday night in a 4-2 victory over Oakland that kept Los Angeles’ flickering AL wild card hopes alive.

The Angels, who were eliminated from the AL West race on Friday night with Jered Weaver’s 3-1 loss to Gio Gonzalez, are 2 1/2 games behind Boston and one behind Tampa Bay for the wild card with four games remaining.

Williams, who improved to 4-0 in six starts, allowed a run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings, struck out two and walked two.

Jordan Walden got the last three outs for his 32nd save, despite giving up Jemile Weeks’ second RBI single of the game.

Guillermo Moscoso (8-10) gave upu four runs and five hits in seven innings.
