Ray (9-8) struck out 10, and with the help of a late rally from his teammates, he was able to win for the first time since July 15 and for the third time this season against Los Angeles.

So far this season, Ray has made two starts against the Angels and has been dominant both times, allowing just two earned runs across 14 innings. In Anaheim, he wasn’t quite as sharp at first, but he found his groove and retired 10 of the final 12 batters he faced.

Continuing his stellar August, Rengifo hit a solo home run in the first inning and an RBI single in the third.

In the first five innings, Suárez had five strikeouts and didn’t need a single defensive gem to maintain his perfect record. Frazier finally got on base with a grounder to David Fletcher at shortstop, who fielded it on the run but had no chance to throw it out.

THE HELPLESS ANGELS OF After participating in batting practice last weekend, Mike Trout is getting closer to making his return from his back injury. Trout’s return date will be up to him, according to interim manager Phil Nevin, but he expects him back this weekend in Detroit rather than on Wednesday. … RHP The shoulder-injured Michael Lorenzen (shoulder) threw a three-inning game. Next, he will make two starts at Triple-A Salt Lake before rejoining the Angels rotation next month. … OF On Monday, a pitch struck Jo Adell in the thumb, forcing him to sit out the game. In Lorenzen’s simulated game, Adell hit a ball but couldn’t throw.

WHAT’S NEXT

On Wednesday, George Kirby (4-3, 3.39 ERA) will pitch for Seattle in the deciding game of the series. To this point, the Angels haven’t named a starting pitcher.
