BOSTON (AP) — Mike Trout and Albert Pujols hit consecutive RBI doubles, and the Los Angeles Angels extended their AL West lead with a 4-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night.

It was the fifth win in six games for the Angels, who moved a half-game ahead of idle Oakland.

David Ortiz reached base four times with a double, single and two walks for the Red Sox, who have lost three of four after winning four straight.

Angels starter C.J. Wilson (10-8) labored through 5 1-3 innings, giving up one run and five hits with five walks and five strikeouts.

Kevin Jepsen worked the ninth for his first save since Sept. 16, 2012. He struck out Ortiz with two on and none out before allowing a run.

Brandon Workman (1-7) lost his sixth straight start, giving up two runs and six hits in seven innings.
