ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ervin Santana allowed five hits while earning his career-best 17th victory, and the Los Angeles Angels again slowed the Texas Rangers’ march to the AL West title with a 2-0 win Tuesday night.

Hank Conger and Hideki Matsui scored after early extra-base hits for the Angels, who have won the past three division titles. Los Angeles pulled within one game of .500 with its ninth win in 12 games, putting a solid finish on a disappointing season.

Santana (17-9) dominated the Rangers’ potent lineup in his fifth career shutout, striking out eight and holding Texas without an extra-base hit in its fourth loss in five games.

Santana got more support than Colby Lewis (11-13), who yielded just four hits and struck out 10 in seven innings.
