ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- C.J. Cron homered twice and drove in four runs, and the Los Angeles Angels overcame another shaky start by Tim Lincecum to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 13-5 on Tuesday night for just their third win in 15 games.
Cron had a solo shot off Jake Odorizzi (3-4) during a four-run second and a three-run drive against Enny Romero in a six-run ninth, his second multihomer game in four days. He had six hits, including a pair of homers, in Saturday's 21-2 win at Boston.
Andrelton Simmons had three RBIs, including a two-run double in a three-run sixth.
Reliever Deolis Guerra (2-0) pitched 1 1/3 perfect innings.
Odorizzi, winless in 10 starts at home this season, gave up seven runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings for the Rays, who have lost 17 of 20.
Nick Franklin gave Tampa Bay a 5-4 lead in the fifth on a two-run single off Tim Lincecum, who allowed five runs and 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings. The ERA of the two-time NL Cy Young Award winner rose to 7.50 in four starts.
Logan Morrison had a solo shot in a two-run third for the Rays.
The Angels had a couple gaffes early on.
Souza was replaced by Brandon Guyer in center field to start the fourth. The reason for the change was not announced.
Franklin went from second to third in the fourth when catcher Carlos Perez was charged with an error for overthrowing Lincecum after a pitch. Franklin was thrown out at the plate attempting to score on Hank Conger's grounder.
TIME OFF FOR TROUT
Angels CF Mike Trout was rested, ending his stretch of starting 145 consecutive games. "He needs a day," manager Mike Scioscia said. Trout, voted to the AL All-Star team Tuesday night, pinch run in the ninth after Robinson was hit in the leg by a pitch and left the game.
Rays closer Alex Colome was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list and got even better news just the before game time, when manager Kevin Cash informed the right-hander that he became a first-time All-Star.
