Porcello lit up in Tigers' shutout loss

Posted: Updated:

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.

Richards (1-0) struck out eight and walked none. 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.

Richards has pitched into the seventh inning in both starts -- the only one on the staff to make it past the sixth in the team's first 16 games.

The defending AL champion Tigers, who lost Friday night's series opener 8-1, were shut out for the third time this season and have produced only three runs in their last 42 innings -- two of which came on groundouts.
