ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Jeff Mathis hit a go-ahead three-run homer, Torii Hunter and Juan Rivera added a pair of RBI singles, and the Los Angeles Angels beat Texas 9-4 on Monday night, spoiling the return of Josh Hamilton to the Rangers' lineup.
The teams entered the game tied for first place in the AL West.
Jered Weaver (9-3) allowed four runs and seven hits and struck out nine through seven innings after the Angels staked him to a 9-2 lead.
Kevin Millwood (8-6) gave up nine runs and nine hits over five innings in the shortest of his 18 starts this season.
Hamilton, an All-Star starter, was 2 for 4 with a double and two strikeouts, after spending the previous 30 games on the disabled list.
