OAKLAND  (AP) — Jered Weaver pitched a four-hitter for his major-league leading 15th victory, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Oakland Athletics 4-0 on Monday night to overtake the final spot in the crowded AL wild card standings.

Weaver (15-1) struck out nine, walked none and faced the minimum through 4 1-3 innings. The Angels ace has won a career-best 10 straight starts, matching Chuck Finley’s franchise record set in 1997.

Erick Aybar singled three times and scored twice in his first game back from the disabled list to move Los Angeles (59-51) ahead of Oakland (58-51) and Baltimore (58-51) by one victory. Detroit (59-50) is in line for the other wild card spot.

Jarrod Parker (7-6) allowed four runs and nine hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out six and walked one in Oakland’s third straight loss.
