DeJesus, Moscoso End A’s 6-Game Skid vs Angels
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — David DeJesus hit two homers and drove in four runs, Guillermo Moscoso pitched six scoreless innings to win his first major league start, and the Oakland Athletics snapped a six-game losing streak with a 6-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.
DeJesus doubled his season homer total with a second-inning solo shot and a two-run homer in the fourth off Dan Haren (4-3), whose winless streak reached seven starts since his 4-0 start to the season.
Moscoso (1-0) largely baffled the Angels in his Oakland debut, giving up three hits and never allowing a Los Angeles runner to reach third base. Moscoso, who’s filling in for injured Tyson Ross, made brief appearances in the Texas Rangers’ bullpen during the past two seasons.
