OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — Jed Lowrie homered and drove in two runs against Oakland nemesis Jered Weaver and the Athletics completed a three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels with a 6-3 victory on Sunday.

Josh Donaldson hit a two-run single and Coco Crisp and Lowrie added RBI hits in a four-run third inning against Weaver (6-4) to give the A’s their first home sweep of at least three games against the Angels since June 29-July 1, 2004.

Oakland leads the AL West by 4 ½ games over Los Angeles, its largest pre-All-Star break lead since being 5 ½ up in 1990.

The big inning was more than enough support for Sonny Gray (6-1), who allowed a pair of sacrifice flies and an RBI double by Erick Aybar in 6 2-3 innings to rebound from a rare rough start. Gray has 11 quality starts in 12 outings this season for a 2.45 ERA.
