Neto and Moniak power Angels past Texas 7-2, snapping Rangers’ 5-game win streak

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Mickey Moniak and Zach Neto both homered and drove in three runs as the Los Angeles Angels ended the Texas Rangers’ season-best five-game winning streak with a 7-2 victory Wednesday night.
Neto finished a triple short of the cycle for the Angels, who had lost four in a row and eight of nine. He combined with Moniak to give Los Angeles five hits and three runs from the bottom two batters in the lineup.
Moniak, the No. 9 hitter, launched a three-run homer to make it 4-0 in the second inning. Neto added an RBI double in the third and a two-run homer in the eighth, his 12th of the year.
Angels starter Griffin Canning pitched well until the fifth, when he gave up a two-run homer to Leody Taveras with no outs. After getting Travis Jankowski to ground out, Canning loaded the bases on back-to-back singles and a walk before being pulled.
Hans Crouse (1-0) struck out rookie Wyatt Langford and slugger Adolis García to end the inning.
García, last year’s AL Championship Series MVP, also popped up against José Marte with the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh.
