OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — Bartolo Colon won his 14th game for a share of the major league lead, backed by Jed Lowrie’s homer and two-run single and a two-run drive by Stephen Vogt in the Oakland Athletics’ 6-4 victory against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.

Colon, the 40-year-old All-Star, won his third straight decision while facing his former club. The right-hander earned the 2005 AL Cy Young Award with a 21-8 year for the Angels.

Mike Trout hit a two-run homer in the first on a ball he crushed into the elevated seats in left-center, then Colon settled in nicely against Los Angeles’ loaded lineup.

Colon (14-3) allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings, struck out two and walked two. He has won 11 of 12 decisions since losing May 9 at Cleveland, and has just one loss since turning 40 on May 24.
