Recap: LA Angels vs. Baltimore

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Jason Vargas dazzled Baltimore hitters, allowing just three hits over nine scoreless innings to lead the LA Angels of Anaheim to a 4-0 win over the Orioles on Friday.

Vargas (1-3) struck out three and walked just two batters en route to his fourth career shutout.

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and three RBI and Mark Trumbo added a solo shot for the Angels, who dropped the opener of this four-game set.

Miguel Gonzalez (2-2) surrendered three runs on six hits -- two homers -- while striking out five to absorb the loss.

Trumbo put the Angels on the board with a leadoff homer in the second.

Vargas finally gave up his first hit with two outs in the fifth when J.J. Hardy laced a single to right field.

Trout's two-run shot in the fifth made it 3-0. J.B. Schuck singled before Trout clobbered his fourth homer of the season over the wall in center field.

The Angels added another run in the seventh on Trout's single to left. Alberto Callaspo walked then moved to second on Shuck's bunt-single. After Erick Aybar fouled out, Trout ripped a base hit to left field to push Callaspo across.

Vargas ran into trouble in the ninth after giving up a one-out double to Nick Markakis, but was able to retire the final two batters of the game to secure the win.
