ANAHEIM -- The A's got home runs from Stephen Vogt and Marcus Semien and relied on a dominant six-inning performance from their bullpen to hold off the Angels, 6-3, on Monday night in the opener of a four-game series at Angel Stadium.

A's right-hander Dan Otero put together four scoreless innings in relief of starter Kendall Graveman, who lasted just three-plus innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks with two strikeouts. David Freese singled in two runs off him in the first, and Albert Pujols added an RBI single in the third.
