Athletics Vs. Angels Final Score: Oakland Shut Out At Home In 5-0 Loss

One night after Tom Milone gave the Los Angeles Angels batters headaches, the Oakland Athletics were one-hit by their division rivals. On Tuesday night, the A's took a 5-0 loss as the Angels evened up the three-game series at one win apiece.

Things went bad right away in the top of the first inning, as the Angels plated three runs on an Albert Pujols sacrifice fly and RBI singles from Mark Trumbo and Howie Kendrick. In the top of the third inning, Albert Pujols hit his fourth home run of the year to make it 4-0 Angels.

Reliever Jim Miller didn't help things in the top of the seventh, when he hit Erick Aybar with the bases loaded to drive in a two-out run that made it 5-0.

Oakland was unable to make much of a dent in Los Angeles starter C.J. Wilson, who gave up one hit and two walks in eight innings of walk. Cliff Pennington managed the only A's hit, a single.

The A's will try for the series win in the rubber game on Wednesday.
