Hyun-Jin Ryu yielded two hits over seven dominant innings, Hanley Ramirez had a two-run single and the Los Angeles Dodgers wrapped up the Freeway Series with their third straight win, 7-0 over the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night.

Angel Stadium was filled with its biggest crowd in 16 years, but the blue-clad fans had all the fun as the Dodgers won the Freeway Series for the first time since 2006.

Ryu (13-5) was brilliant in his fourth victory in five starts, striking out four and allowing just two runners to reach third base.

Adrian Gonzalez added a late two-run single for the NL-leading Dodgers (66-50), who thoroughly shut down their Southern California neighbors.

The Angels (67-47) managed just two runs on eight hits in the final 24 innings of the series, falling three games behind Oakland atop the overall major league standings.
