Athletics Vs Angels: Los Angeles Blanks Oakland 4-0 to Split Series

Angels starter Ervin Santana gave up four hits, no runs, and struck out nine batters in 7 and 2/3 innings of work and Los Angeles cruised to a 4-0 win over the A's as Oakland continued to struggle generating offense. Tuesday night's game marked the fifth time the A's have been shut out this season, second only in the majors to the Angels, interestingly enough.

Santana was masterful, retiring 16 straight batters at one point, and 38-year old A's starter Bartolo Colon gave up four runs on 12 hits through 6 and 2/3 innings for the Athletics. Colon walked no batters and struck out three, but never had a chance for the win column with the A's lack of offense.

For the Angels, Mike Trout went 3 for 4 with three RBIs and the $240 million dollar man, Albert Pujols, pushed his batting average to .212 with a 3 for 4 outing at the plate, though his three hits came on infield singles. The A's loaded the bases in the sixth, but failed to push any runners through, ultimately ending the game 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position.

The teams split the 2-game series.
