ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Rookie Matt Shoemaker won his fifth straight decision in a starting role, C.J. Cron and Kole Calhoun homered in the second inning against Yu Darvish, and the Los Angeles Angels completed a three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers with a 5-2 victory on Sunday night.

Cron went deep for the third straight game, helping the Angels pull within five games of AL West-leading Oakland. Calhoun was credited with the first run of the game on a replay reversal in the first inning that led to the ejection of Texas manager Ron Washington by plate umpire Bill Miller.

Shoemaker (5-1) allowed a run and eight hits in 7 2-3 innings with six strikeouts and two walks.
