ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) C.J. Wilson outpitched Dan Straily, retiring 18 consecutive batters at one point, and Alberto Callaspo homered to help the Los Angeles Angels beat the Oakland Athletics 2-0 Saturday night.

Wilson (10-6) gave up three hits in 8 1-3 innings. He struck out eight and walked two. Jed Lowrie’s two-out double in the first and Nate Freiman’s leadoff single in the second were the only hits off the left-hander until Lowrie’s one-out single in the ninth on Wilson’s 119th and final pitch. Wilson began his string of consecutive outs with three straight strikeouts on 10 pitches and didn’t allow another baserunner until he walked Derek Norris on a full count leading off the eighth.

Ernesto Frieri got the final two outs for his 24th save in 26 chances, striking out pinch-hitter John Jaso with runners at first and second to end it.
