Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched a two-hitter for his first complete game in the major leagues, Luis Cruz hit his first homer of the season and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Angels 3-0 in the second game of the Freeway Series on Tuesday night.

Ryu (6-2) struck out seven and walked none. The left-hander from South Korea retired 19 consecutive batters during one stretch. His six victories lead all rookie pitchers in the majors, while his 71 2-3 innings pitched lead all rookies this season.

Joe Blanton (1-8) gave up three runs and seven hits in seven innings while facing his former teammates for the first time since the right-hander signed with the Angels in the offseason after pitching the final two months of last season for the Dodgers. He struck out five and walked none.
