OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Torii Hunter drove in three runs and the Los Angeles Angels completed a three-game sweep at Oakland by rolling to a 7-1 victory after Athletics pitcher Brandon McCarthy took a liner off his head in the fourth inning. 

McCarthy (8-6) was sent to the hospital after he was struck by Erick Aybar's comebacker. The team said he never lost consciousness.

Howie Kendrick doubled and hit a two-run single to bring the Angels within 2½ games of Oakland for one of two AL wild-card spots. Dan Haren (10-10) allowed one run and three hits in six innings. 

Seth Smith's single in the third drove home Oakland's only run.
