Preview: Angels (64-43) at Brewers (60-49)

The Los Angeles Angels' last loss in Milwaukee came more than 16 years ago.

Giving the ball to C.J. Wilson may just keep it that way.

Unbeaten for nearly two months, Wilson looks to help the Angels beat the Brewers for an eighth straight meeting as the visitor Sunday.

Los Angeles (62-72) hasn't lost in Milwaukee since May 11, 1997, when the Brewers were a member of the AL and played at County Stadium.

The Angels' road winning streak in the series started with two wins there before taking all five visits at Miller Park.

Hank Conger kept that run going in dramatic fashion Saturday, putting Los Angeles up for good with a two-run, two-out homer in the ninth of a 6-5 win over Milwaukee (59-76).

"We kept playing baseball," manager Mike Scioscia said. "We got some breaks on the offensive side, a couple balls to fall in, and then there was some big hits at the end."

Sweeping the Brewers would cap the Angels' nine-game road trip with an eighth win, and turning to Wilson (13-6, 3.36 ERA) seems to give them a good chance.

Wilson has never pitched at Miller Park, but he's 9-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his last 14 starts this season. That stretch includes six straight winning decisions on the road as he's gotten 8.43 runs of support per nine innings.

The left-hander didn't get a decision or much help from the bats at Tampa Bay on Tuesday, when he allowed three runs with five walks in five innings while being backed by one run in a 6-5 win.

The Brewers, losers of five of six at Miller Park, will counter with Kyle Lohse (9-8, 3.39), who is 3-1 with a 2.03 ERA in five home starts since the All-Star break.

The right-hander struggled through his latest outing at Pittsburgh on Tuesday, giving up five runs and a career-high 13 hits in 5 1-3 innings while not getting a decision in a 7-6 win.

He has an 11.85 ERA over his last three starts against the Angels, but hasn't faced them since 2010.

Los Angeles may opt to start Chris Iannetta behind the plate after he went 2 for 4 with a solo homer Saturday. Iannetta is also 3 for 8 with a double off Lohse.

J.B. Shuck enters his first matchup with Lohse on a six-game hitting streak, during which he's 11 for 26 with four runs. The outfielder has a .417 average over his last 11 interleague games.

The Brewers are getting impressive production from Jonathan Lucroy, who is hitting .386 with 13 RBIs in 19 games. The catcher had three hits while matching his season high by plating four runs Saturday.

"Guys on base ... he's tough. He stays inside the ball, he stays on off-speed stuff," manager Ron Roenicke said. "They try to come in on him and he can still get to it. He's a tough guy to get out."
