Red Sox - 000 000 000 - 0  2  1
Angels  - 011 010 00x - 3  5  0
Kole Calhoun hit two solo home runs to lead the Angels to their second straight shutout win over the Red Sox. Los Angeles' third run scored in the second inning on two walks, an infield error, and a wild pitch from Rick Porcello (5-4-3-3-5, 102).

Garrett Richards (9-2-0-1-6, 113) pitched his first complete game of the season.

Pablo Sandoval had both of Boston's hits: a single in the second and a ground-rule double in the fifth.

The Red Sox's post-All-Star Game offense has consisted of seven hits and no runs in 18 innings.

Porcello Factoid: "In four starts with [Ryan] Hanigan, Porcello has a 3.60 ERA as compared with a 6.70 ERA in 13 starts with either Sandy Leon or Blake Swihart catching."

Mike Trout - still only 23 years old - is pretty friggin good at baseball.

SB Nation: Billy Hamilton is ridiculously fast. So fast that he stole third base on a throw back to the pitcher.

Edes: "The Sox haven't lost back-to-back shutouts since Aug. 7-8, 2009, when they were blanked in the Bronx. It's happened just four times in the last 20 seasons, again by the Yanks at Fenway in 2002, and in Oakland in 1996."
