MILWAUKEE -- Jered Weaver threw seven scoreless innings and Grant Green cleared the bases with a seventh-inning double as the Angels beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-0 in an interleague game on Friday night at Miller Park.

Like his Los Angeles counterpart, Brewers starter Wily Peralta (8-14) had been sharp through the first six innings, striking out six and scattering three hits and a walk, but he ran into trouble in the seventh.

He walked Kole Calhoun to open the inning and followed with a single by Mark Trumbo before giving way to reliever Rob Wooten.

Wooten got the first out by striking out Hank Conger but allowed a base hit to Luis Jimenez and a bases-loaded double to Green, making it 4-0.

Peter Bourjos pinch-hit for Weaver (9-7), and with two out, J.B. Shuck drove in Green to make it 5-0 Angels before Erick Aybar ended the inning with a groundout to short.

Weaver gave up three hits and had three strikeouts in winning his second consecutive start.

Calhoun finished the day 2-for-2 with a walk, a home run and two runs scored.

The Brewers loaded the bases again in the seventh against Michael Kohn, but Scooter Gennett lined out to second, leaving all three runners stranded.

Calhoun opened the scoring with a one-out home run to right field in the fourth.

Milwaukee loaded the bases in the bottom of the inning, but Martin Maldonado popped up a 3-0 fastball just in front of the plate and Peralta flied out to center, ending the threat.

NOTES: Milwaukee traded right-handed reliever John Axford to the Cardinals in exchange for a player to be named. Axford went 6-7 with a 4.45 ERA in 62 appearances this season. In five seasons with Milwaukee, Axford converted 106 saves. ... With all three of their minor league affiliates headed to the playoffs, the Angels don't expect to make any call-ups on Sunday when rosters expand to 40 players. ... The Brewers haven't hosted the Angels at Miller Park since 2002, though Los Angeles did play the Indians here when a three-game series in Cleveland was snowed out in 2007. ... Brewers RHP Tyler Thornburg will start Monday against the Pittsburgh Pirates, a move that sends LHP Tom Gorzelanny back to the bullpen. ... Josh Hamilton was not in the starting lineup for Los Angeles because of a sore left shoulder. Hamilton has not missed a game since July 24. ... Angels C Hank Conger was in Mike Scoscia's starting lineup for the fifth time in six games.
