Reggie Willits' two-run single in the fifth inning broke a scoreless deadlock, and Jered Weaver tossed 5 1/3 shutout innings for his sixth victory. Angels relievers Darren Oliver, Scot Shields and Francisco Rodriguez sealed the deal with flawless outings.
Jason Schmidt pitched shutout ball for the first four innings, but the Angels drove his pitch count up and knocked him out of the game with a three-run fifth. The right-hander remained winless in three starts since his DL stint as the Dodgers could not get on the board against four Angels pitchers.
