Angels shut out Red Sox again
The Los Angeles Angels' Kole Calhoun, right, is forced out at second as Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia throws out Mike Trout at first during the seventh inning Saturday in Anaheim, Calif.

Garrett Richards pitched a two-hitter for his second career shutout, Kole Calhoun hit two homers and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Boston Red Sox 3-0 Saturday night for their 13th victory in 16 games.

Richards (10-6) allowed just three baserunners and retired Boston’s final 15 hitters in order to wrap up the second straight shutout victory for the Angels, who increased their AL West lead to a season-best 1 1/2 games. Richards allowed just one Boston runner to reach third base, retiring 22 of 23 overall to end it.

Pablo Sandoval had both hits for the Red Sox, who have been shut out in consecutive games for the first time since Aug. 7-8, 2009.
