Schoop's 2-run HR helps O's beat Angels 4-2

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Miguel Gonzalez took a two-hit shutout into the eighth inning, Jonathan Schoop homered and J.J. Hardy hit two RBI doubles to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.

Gonzalez (5-5) allowed two runs and three hits in 7 2-3 innings, including a two-run homer in the eighth by All-Star game MVP Mike Trout after a walk to No. 9 hitter Hank Conger. The Angels' other hits against the right-hander were singles by Efren Navarro in the third and fifth innings.

Tommy Hunter retired Albert Pujols on a grounder for the final out of the eighth and Zach Britton pitched a perfect ninth for his 18th save in 21 chances.

Gonzalez was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk, where he was optioned on July 11 in order to keep him on his regular routine during the All-Star break.
