ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- C.J. Wilson won his third straight start, Mike Trout hit a leadoff homer in the first inning and the Los Angeles Angels roughed up Justin Verlander en route to a 6-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night.
Trout ended the game by robbing Prince Fielder of a home run to center field on a 3-2 pitch from Garrett Richards.
Wilson (12-9) allowed an unearned run and four hits in 7 2-3 innings, struck out six and walked two. It was the first time the All-Star left-hander pitched at least seven innings in 11 starts since July 13. His first three-game winning streak since last September began after a stretch of 11 consecutive outings in which he was 0-5.
The Angels have won 10 of 11 since losing consecutive games at Detroit.
Verlander (13-8) gave up six runs and nine hits in six innings.
