ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Kole Calhoun homered, Alex Meyer earned his second major league win and the Los Angeles Angels held off a late rally from the Oakland Athletics to sweep the three-game series with an 8-6 win Wednesday night.

Khris Davis, who played at nearby Cal State Fullerton, hit his 41st home run and his sixth against the Angels this season in the sixth inning, making the score 8-3. Marcus Semien brought the A's to within two runs with a three-run homer, also his sixth against Los Angeles, in the eighth.

Meyer (2-3) limited the A's to two runs on five hits over four innings and struck out five. J.C. Ramirez pitched a perfect ninth to convert his second save.

Mike Trout was hit by a John Axford fastball in the back of his left shoulder in the eighth inning and was removed from the game.

Ross Detwiler (3-3) took the loss.
