HOUSTON (AP) — Jered Weaver pitched six solid innings, Chris Iannetta homered and the Los Angeles Angels stopped Houston’s four-game winning streak, beating the Astros 6-2 Saturday night.

Weaver (10-8) joined Nolan Ryan as the only Angels pitchers to reach double-digits in wins for eight straight seasons.

Brett Wallace homered for Houston, which leads the majors with 97 losses.

Rookie Brett Oberholtzer (4-3) allowed four runs and six hits in six innings. The 24-year-old lefty entered the game with a 1.91 ERA since July 31, best in the AL over that span.
