ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — C.J. Wilson pitched six scoreless innings against his former teammates, Alberto Callaspo singled home the go-ahead run in the seventh and the surging Los Angeles Angels beat Texas 3-2 Saturday night to pull within 3 1/2 games of the AL West-leading Rangers.

Bobby Cassevah (1-0) got two outs for the victory, the Angels’ 10th in 11 games. Ernesto Friere, the fifth Angels pitcher, worked 1 1-3 innings for his fourth save in as four chances after the Rangers scored an unearned run in the eighth against Scott Downs.

Friere ended it by striking out Josh Hamilton with the bases loaded after an 11-pitch walk to Ian Kinsler and a throwing error by Gold Glove shortstop Erick Aybar on a routine grounder by Elvis Andrus kept the inning alive.
