 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Jered Weaver combined with three relievers on a five-hitter, All-Star Mike Trout and Hank Conger homered and the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Boston Red Sox 3-0 Sunday night for their 10th win in 12 games.

Weaver (3-4) allowed five hits, struck out six and walked two in 6 2-3 innings. It was his first outing since becoming a father on Friday, when he named his first child Aden David Weaver in honor of his late teammate and friend Nick Adenhart.

As he always does, Weaver scrawled the initials `NA’ into the mound before his first pitch of each inning.

Weaver beat former teammate John Lackey (6-6), whose three-game winning streak ended. Lackey struck out nine in seven innings and was charged with two runs and five hits.

Ernesto Frieri pitched the ninth to earn his 22nd save in 24 chances.

Weaver gave up back-to-back hits to Jacoby Ellsbury and Daniel Nava to open the game, and then got out of the jam by retiring Dustin Pedroia on a liner to third base, and striking out David Ortiz and former Angel Mike Napoli.

Trout, who will start for the AL in next week’s All-Star game in New York, put the Angels ahead 1-0 in the first with his 15th homer.

Conger made it 2-0 with two outs in the fifth, with his drive landing in the same right field area as Trout’s shot.

Albert Pujols singled with two outs in the sixth and the Red Sox shifted their infield for Josh Hamilton, leaving third base open, which allowed Pujols to take third as Hamilton walked. But Howie Kendrick grounded out to end the threat.

The Red Sox had runners on first and second in the seventh, with Weaver yielding singles to Napoli and Brock Holt before turning it over to Dane De La Rosa, who got Jose Iglesias to fly out to right to end the inning.

The Angels added a run on Mark Trumbo’s sacrifice fly in the eighth.
