DETROIT Mike Trout homered and drove in three runs, and Erick Aybar's two-run shot gave Los Angeles the lead for good as the Angels beat Detroit 7-4 on Wednesday night for their eighth consecutive win over the Tigers.

The Angels have outscored the Tigers 55-21 during the streak.

Miguel Cabrera and former Angels outfielder Torii Hunter homered for Detroit.

Los Angeles emergency starter Billy Buckner gave up three runs and three hits in three- plus innings. He replaced Tommy Hanson, who was scratched after feeling tightness in his right forearm while warming up in the bullpen before the game.

Buckner was pulled in favor of Dane De La Rosa (2-1), who got the win. Ernesto Frieri pitched a scoreless ninth for his 18th save in 20 chances.

Detroit starter Jose Alvarez (1-1) allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings.
