Recap: Los Angeles vs. LA Angels

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Rookie left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu spun a two- hit shutout Tuesday to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-0 victory over the LA Angels of Anaheim in the finale of a brief two-game set at Chavez Ravine.

Ryu (6-2) struck out seven without issuing a walk to notch his first career shutout and help the Dodgers earn their second straight win over the Halos.

"It was a good night...my first complete-game shutout," Ryu said through his interpreter. "After the seventh inning, my pitch count wasn't too high and I felt I had good stuff. I didn't walk anybody. I was pretty happy."

Luis Cruz clubbed a two-run homer and A.J. Ellis added an RBI single for the Dodgers, who will head to Angels Stadium on Wednesday and Thursday for two more games to complete the Freeway Series.

Former Dodger Joe Blanton (1-8) allowed all three runs on seven hits over seven innings to absorb the loss for the Angels, who had won eight straight games before bowing to the Dodgers on back-to-back nights.

The Dodgers broke through against Blanton in the fifth as Juan Uribe started the inning with a single before trotting around the bases on Cruz's fly ball over the left-field wall.

The home team tacked on another run in the sixth when Matt Kemp clubbed a one- out double and scored on Ellis' single to right for a 3-0 edge.

Ryu, meanwhile, was nearly unhittable, retiring 19 Angels in a row following Howie Kendrick's one-out single in the second.

Chris Iannetta broke up the string of consecutive outs with a double in the eight, but Ryu bounced back by retiring J.B. Shuck on a groundout to short.

Ryu secured the shutout with a 1-2-3 ninth.

"He pitched a strong game and came right after us," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Ryu. "We didn't get many good looks tonight."

Game Notes

Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton was scratched from the starting lineup with back spasms ... Ryu, who also doubled, improved to 3-0 over his last four starts ... Blanton pitched for the Dodgers in 2012 and was facing his former team for the first time since signing with the Angels in the offseason.
