ANGELS 3, PHILLIES 0

Mike Trout, who grew up in nearby Millville, New Jersey, went 1 for 4 with a triple, walk and stolen base.

Richards (4-0) struck out eight, had no walks and lowered his ERA to 2.42. Ernesto Frieri pitched a perfect eighth and Joe Smith finished off the five-hitter for his fifth save in seven tries.

A.J. Burnett (2-3) labored through five innings, allowing three runs and seven hits. He struck out six and walked five.

The Angels have won five of six to move a season-high three games above .500. Philadelphia has lost three straight and seven of nine to fall a season-worst four games under .500.
