HOUSTON (AP) – Josh Hamilton doubled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and scored on shortstop Jake Elmore’s overthrow, helping the Los Angeles Angels beat the Houston Astros 3-1 Sunday and extend their winning streak to six.

C.J. Wilson won his fourth straight start and Mark Trumbo hit his 18th homer for the Angels, who swept three-game series at Detroit and Houston for their first undefeated road trip of at least six games since 2002.

Wilson (8-5) allowed an unearned run, three hits and three walks, and he struck out 10 for his third double- digit strikeout game this season. Ernesto Frieri pitched a one-hit ninth for his 21st save in 23 chances.
