The Angels scored five runs off Zack Greinke, the Dodgers' No. 2 starter, on Monday and three runs off Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw on Tuesday, but they had no answer for the riddle that has become Hyun-Jin Ryu on Thursday night.

Ryu gave up two hits in seven shutout innings, striking out four and walking one, in a 7-0 victory before a sellout crowd of 44,561 in Angel Stadium, the Dodgers winning the final three games of the four-game Freeway Series to extend their National League West lead over San Francisco to 3 1/2 games.

Combined with the two-hit shutout he threw against the Angels in May of 2013, Ryu (13-5) has given up four hits in 16 innings against the Angels, striking out 11 and walking one.

"He had a real good fastball-changeup combination going, and he threw strikes," Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said of Ryu. "We didn't get too many good looks at him."

The Dodgers got plenty of good looks at Angels starter C.J. Wilson, who lasted 5 2/3 innings, giving up four runs and six hits, striking out five, walking four and hitting a batter. And that qualified as an improvement for the left-hander, which tells you how things have gone for him lately.
