Recap: Philadelphia vs. LA Angels

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Albert Pujols doubled and scored twice and the LA Angels of Anaheim defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, 3-0, on Wednesday afternoon.

Pujols finished with two hits while Raul Ibanez, Efren Navarro, and Erick Aybar each drove in a run for the Angels, who have now won seven straight against the Phillies.

Garrett Richards (4-0) spun seven scoreless innings, giving up just five hits and no walks with eight strikeouts.

Chase Utley went 2-for-4 with two doubles to lead Philadelphia offensively. Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard and Carlos Ruiz supplied the Phillies' other three hits as the offense could not get anything going.

A.J. Burnett (2-3) allowed all three runs on seven hits with five walks across five frames for the Phillies, who dropped their third straight overall and eighth consecutive interleague game.

"He was just a little off with his control early on," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said of Burnett. "He threw about 78 pitches through three innings and that was quite a bit."

The Angels took an early 1-0 lead. Pujols lined a double to right with two outs in the first inning and rounded third on Ibanez's single to right.

Hank Conger and Grant Green both singled to begin the second for the Angels. Burnett recovered to fan Luis Jimenez and Richards, but Navarro hit a sharp single up the middle to plate Conger and make it a 2-0 game.

Pujols singled and Ibanez walked before Aybar's double to center field scored another. Conger then walked to load the bases with no outs, but Burnett struck out Green and got Jimenez to ground into a double play to end the threat.

Mike Trout, who was greeted with cheers from the Philadelphia crowd for a second straight game, tripled on a fly ball off the right-field wall to start the Angels' seventh. After Mike Adams struck out the next two hitters, Aybar got aboard on a walk and stole second, but Conger popped up to leave the runners stranded.

Ruiz got aboard on a single with one out in the home half of the seventh. He then advanced to second on a wild pitch and moved to third on Cody Asche's groundout, but pinch-hitter Reid Brignac struck out as Richards escaped unscathed.

"He knows what he needs to do," Conger said of Richards' ability to work out of jams. "I think the game overall has kind of slowed down for him."

Johnson headlines FCS players of the week

In 2013, the Montana State Bobcats made a bit of an offensive switch, going from a pass-heavy system to a more run- integrated style of play. The reason wasn't because the team was unstable at quarterback, but rather due to the fact the Bobcats were loaded at the running back position.
