ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Los Angeles Angels used eight pitchers — a franchise record for a nine-inning game — in a 2-0 victory over Oakland on Saturday night that increased their AL West lead over the Athletics to four games.

The deficit is the largest for the A’s this season. They led the division by four games on Aug. 9 before going on their current 6-13 slide.

The Angels won their fifth in a row to go a season-best 29 games over .500 (82-53).

Notes

• The Red Sox may have lost second baseman Dustin Pedroia for a while after he took an elbow to the head while attempting to make a tag at second base. Manager John Farrell said Pedroia has concussion-like symptoms.

• The AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles acquired outfielder Alejandro De Aza and infielder Kelly Johnson in a pair of trades, bolstering their bench in the wake of a couple of key injuries.
