LOS ANGELES (AP) — Garrett Richards pitched a five-hitter for his first career shutout, Mike Trout and Albert Pujols had RBI doubles in a four-run first inning, and the Los Angeles Angels opened the Freeway Series with a 5-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.

Josh Hamilton homered in the sixth for the Angels, who improved the majors' second-best record to 67-44 with their seventh win in 10 games.

Richards (12-4) was dominant in his first nine-inning complete game, striking out nine and retiring 15 of 16 in the middle innings with a fastball regularly hitting 98 mph. He finished his first victory in four starts by getting pinch-hitter Andre Ethier on a groundout.

Richards outpitched Zack Greinke (12-7), who has just one victory in his last five starts.
