Recap: LA Angels vs. Los Angeles

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Chris Capuano was again stingy on the mound and Dee Gordon served as the offensive catalyst, as the Dodgers edged the Angels, 3-1, in the second meeting of their three-game Freeway Series.

Capuano (9-2) lowered his ERA to 2.60 by limiting the Angels to one run on seven hits in seven innings of work.

"Chris was really good. He's been like this almost every time out," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.

Gordon, whose batting average was .220 coming in, went 2-for-4 with a triple, a stolen base and two runs scored to help snap the Dodgers' four-game slide.

Ervin Santana (4-8), coming off a one-hit shutout of the Diamondbacks last Saturday, struck out 10 over eight innings but allowed three runs -- two earned -- on four hits to take the loss.

The Angels, seeking their fourth straight win, had their leadoff hitter reach base six times, but went just 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

The Dodgers scored twice in the first inning, their only hit coming on Gordon's leadoff single. The speedster swiped second and scored when Albert Pujols fielded a Jerry Hairston Jr. ground ball and threw it away trying to nab Gordon at third.

Hairston wound up on second, took third on a wild pitch and crossed the plate as a result of Maicer Izturis' throwing error.

Howie Kendrick doubled leading off the home fifth and eventually scored the Angels' only run on an Erick Aybar infield single.

The Angels stranded runners on the corners, and the Dodgers got the run back in their next at-bat. Gordon started the inning with a triple and scored on Hairston's infield hit.

"When you hit your spots, and they hit it, you just have to tip your cap." reasoned Santana.

Ronald Belisario relieved Capuano in the eighth, and as was the case in the previous five innings, the Angels' leadoff got on base. Mike Trout opened with a single and stole second, but Belisario struck out Torii Hunter and got Pujols and Mark Trumbo on a pair of groundouts to end the threat.

Kenley Jansen set down the side in order in the ninth to secure his 12th save.
