DETROIT (AP) -- Former Tiger Jefry Marte had three RBI and Tyler Skaggs shut down the Detroit offense in the Los Angeles Angels' 5-0 victory on Sunday. After scoring 35 runs in the four games before this series, the Tigers were limited to six runs in the three-game weekend set against the Angels. It is the ninth time this season the Tigers have been shut out.
The victory gave the Angels back-to-back road series wins for the first time this season. Marte hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning off Anibal Sanchez (7-13) for the first runs of the game. It was Marte's 10th home run of the season and first since Aug. 17. He played in 33 games with the Tigers last season.
The Angels added three more runs in the sixth, on sacrifice flies by Andrelton Simmons and Marte, plus an RBI double by Nick Buss. Skaggs (2-3), pitching for the first time at Comerica Park, allowed just two hits while striking out six in six innings.
