Just a day after their ace, Jered Weaver, threw a no-hitter against the Minnesota Twins, the LA Angels got a taste of the same medicine, as Toronto's Brandon Morrow shut them out on three hits in a 5-0 Blue Jay victory.
Morrow, who fanned eight and didn't issue a walk, got the last laugh, striking out Trout to end the game. He threw 75 of 102 pitches for strikes in a masterful performance.
Morrow was 11-11 for the Jays last season. This year, he's off to a solid start at 3-1, with a 2.38 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP. The shutout was the second of his career.
Toronto improved to 15-11, and are three games behind the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays.
Blanton gave up a first inning single to Freddie Freeman, but nailed down the next fifteen batters in a row en route to his seventh complete game and third shutout.
The Braves never got a runner to second base, as Blanton completely bamboozled them, striking out six batters and getting 11 ground outs and nine through the air, mostly harmless pop-ups, evening his seasonal record at 3-3.
Philly took two of three in the series, getting their record to .500, at 13-13. They trail the Nationals in the NL East by 3 1/2 games. The Braves fell 1 1/2 off the pace in the division.
