OAKLAND (CBS/AP) Chris Iannetta hit a two-run homer in a three-hit day, Vernon Wells had a solo shot and RBI single, and the Los Angeles Angels snapped Oakland’s season-best nine-game winning streak with an 8-3 win Monday.

C.J. Wilson (11-9) shut down the red-hot Athletics in the Angels’ sixth victory in the last seven. Oakland had all the momentum coming off a commanding sweep of the Red Sox in which the A’s outscored Boston 33-5.

Torii Hunter led off the third with a solo homer and added a sacrifice fly in the sixth for the Angels. Wells hit his 10th homer to start the fourth and No. 9 hitter Iannetta connected in the sixth.

Wilson outpitched fellow lefty Tommy Milone (11-10) to win back-to-back starts for the first time since June 19 and 26.
