MILWAUKEE, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- J.B. Shuck stroked a bases-clearing double in the seventh inning Sunday, rallying the Los Angeles Angles over Milwaukee 5-3 for an interleague series sweep.

The Angels were trailing 3-1 when Hank Conger led off the seventh with a single against Mike Gonzalez.

Rob Wooten (3-1) came in to pitch, only to surrender a single to Luis Jimenez. After Austin Romine sacrificed the runners along, pinch-hitter Josh Hamilton was intentionally walked to load the bases.

That brought up Shuck, who sent a sharp grounder down the first base line that glanced off the glove of Yuniesky Betancourt for a three-run double.

Kole Calhoun went 2-for-4 with two RBI and Mike Trout added three hits for Los Angeles.

C.J. Wilson (14-6) yielded three runs on three hits over six innings for the victory, walking two and striking out three.

Ernesto Frieri finished up the win with his 30th save.

Carlos Gomez cracked a two-run homer for the Brewers.
