OAKLAND (AP) — Josh Willingham homered and drove in two runs, Jemile Weeks singled twice and scored, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-3 on Friday night.

Brandon McCarthy (2-5) pitched into the sixth inning and matched his season-high of seven strikeouts for his first win since April 10.

The right-hander, who missed nearly seven weeks with a stress reaction in his right scapula, had to work out of trouble in almost every inning but held on for the win after the A’s bullpen blew most of a three-run lead.

Kurt Suzuki added two hits for Oakland, which has won six of the last eight games against the Angels.

Dan Haren allowed four runs and 10 hits as Los Angeles had a four-game winning streak snapped.
