Richards struck out eight and walked none. Trout's second homer of the season capped the Angels' most productive first inning in almost 18 years, and Richards pitched two-hit ball over seven innings in a 10-0 romp over the defending AL champion Tigers on Saturday. It was more than enough for Richards, who threw seven scoreless innings with a career-high eight strikeouts, as the Angels won consecutive games for just the second time all season. The Angels are now 6-10 the same record through 16 games as in 2012 but have won four in a row at home, two straight home series and five consecutive meetings against the Tigers. Prince Fielder 's leadoff single in the second and Miguel Cabrera 's leadoff double in the seventh were the only hits off the right-hander in his second start for the injured Jered Weaver , who is sidelined with a broken bone in his non-pitching arm.
Mike Trout capped a nine-run first inning against Rick Porcello with his first career grand slam, Garrett Richards pitched two-hit ball over seven innings and the Los Angeles Angels routed the Detroit Tigers 10-0 on Saturday.
