ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Jered Weaver took a shutout into the seventh inning to win for the first time in almost a month, Carlos Perez homered and drove in a career-high five runs and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 10-2 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.
Weaver (4-3) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings and struck out a season-high six. He had been 0-3 with a 7.77 ERA in four starts since defeating Kansas City on April 26.
Weaver allowed one runner past first base in the first six innings. Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer in the seventh.
Perez tied a career-high with three hits, getting a go-ahead single in the second and a three-run homer in the seventh against Dylan Bundy.
Los Angeles took a 6-0 lead in the third against Ubaldo Jimenez (2-5), who gave up six runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings.
Escobar, Albert Pujols and C.J. Cron all doubled off Jimenez as the first six Angels batters reached in the third.
Escobar's leadoff double off the center-field wall was followed by Kole Calhoun's run-scoring single. Mike Trout walked, Pujols lined an RBI double, and Johnny Giavotella also had an RBI single that extended his hitting streak to 11 games. Cron hit soft liner just inside the chalk down the right-field line for another run-scoring double, and another run scored when third baseman Ryan Flaherty mishandled Perez's grounder for an error.
