Shoemaker combines on 2-hitter, leads Angels over M’s 5-0

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Matt Shoemaker combined with three relievers on a two-hitter, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Seattle Mariners 5-0 Monday.

Shoemaker retired his first 13 batters before Mike Zunino’s fifth-inning double. Logan Morrison singled him to third, but Zunino was stranded when Shoemaker retired Willie Bloomquist on a flyout and Dustin Ackey on a popout.

Jose Alvarez, Ryan Mattheus and Cesar Ramos followed with hitless relief.

Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez gave up four runs — two earned — and four hits in 1 2-3 innings.

In Scottsdale, the Angels’ Garrett Richards pitched four hitless innings in a minor league game against San Francisco.
