ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Josh Hamilton doubled, singled and scored two runs in his return to Angel Stadium, and Texas got 7-plus outstanding innings of four-hit ball from Colby Lewis in a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.

Hamilton was booed whenever he stepped to the plate or touched the ball at the stadium where he played the previous two seasons after signing a five-year, $125 million free-agent deal with the Angels. The former AL MVP was traded back to Texas three months ago following two dismal years in Orange County.

Hamilton's double off the right-field wall started the Rangers' three-run rally in the fourth.

Mike Trout hit his 29th home run, pulling even with Albert Pujols atop the AL homers race.
