LOS ANGELES -- Garrett Richards claims he gave little thought to his first career shutout until the final out settled into Albert Pujols glove at first base. UGG Boots Cyber Monday UK . He figures he will have the whole rest of his life to savour his milestone accomplishment at Dodger Stadium. Richards pitched a five-hitter, Mike Trout and Pujols had RBI doubles in a four-run first inning, and the Los Angeles Angels opened the Freeway Series with a 5-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night. Richards (12-4) was dominant in his first nine-inning complete game, striking out nine and retiring 15 of 16 in the middle innings with a fastball regularly hitting 98 mph. He finished his first victory in four starts by getting pinch-hitter Andre Ethier on a groundout with his 122nd pitch. "Thats faith in me, and thats important to me," Richards said. "Going back out (for the ninth), I was just worried about winning the ballgame." Richards even outpitched Zack Greinke (12-7), who yielded six hits and three earned runs in seven innings despite giving up just two hits after that messy first inning. A day after scoring five runs in the first inning at Tampa Bay, the Angels had another quick start on the road. They led 4-0 after four hits, two unearned runs, two wild pitches by Greinke and two horrible fielding misplays from Carl Crawford and Hanley Ramirez. "(Greinke) just made two mistakes to two really amazing hitters, and they made him pay for those mistakes," Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. "After that, he was lights out." Richards took control from there, allowing just one runner to reach third base. "He is driven," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Garrett wants to be good. He has a lot of confidence in what he can do." Josh Hamilton homered in the sixth for the Angels, who improved the majors second-best record to 67-44 with their seventh win in 10 games. Los Angeles two teams both appear headed for the playoffs in the same season for the first time since 2009, with the Dodgers sitting atop the NL standings and the Angels chasing down the Oakland Athletics. TAGGING UP: Pujols had a little fun with Yasiel Puig, tagging up from first base when the Dodgers centre fielder was slow to return a long fly ball to the infield in the eighth inning. "Thats how you play the game," Pujols said. "He can have fun, too. Im having fun. He can do whatever he wants." Two innings earlier, Puig playfully wagged his finger from centre field when Erick Aybar thought about making the same tag-up move from first base. When he got lazy in the eighth, even the slow-footed Pujols could run on him. Between innings, Pujols appeared to mock Puig for his lackadaisical catch on the fly, but Pujols bristled when asked about it after the game. "He just got a lesson, and hopefully he learns it," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said of Puig. "Albert basically embarrassed him right there." HEARING BOOS: Trout was heartily booed when he stepped to the plate or appeared on the Dodgers video boards, an unusual sound for the popular All-Star outfielder. "Its how baseball should be," Trout said. "Its rivalries, crosstown. Its fun for me with the fans involved. It pumps me up when you hear them." TRAINERS ROOM: Angels: Reliever Mike Morin said he cut his foot while walking on a Florida beach with friends last weekend, sending him to the disabled list for two weeks. Dodgers: Reliever Chris Perez went on the disabled list with bone spurs in his right ankle. ON DECK: Angels: Hector Santiago (3-7, 3.76 ERA) looks to build on his summer surge after his 0-7 start. With Tyler Skaggs on the disabled list, the Angels are counting on him. Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw (13-2, 1.71) claimed the NLs previous two pitcher-of-the-month awards and hasnt lost since May 28, but the vaunted left-hander hasnt faced the Angels since 2011.

UGG Boots Cyber Monday UK 2016 . -- A few drivers, like Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano, raced onto the track to get in their qualifying sessions. . LOUIS -- The St. REGINA -- No S.J. Green. No Brandon London. No Brandon Whitaker. No problem. With their top two receivers and starting running back out hurt, the Montreal Alouettes showed their resilience posting 356 yards of net offence in a 34-28 win Saturday over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Jamel Richardson caught eight passes for 161 yards and third-string tailback Chris Jennings (regular backup Victor Anderson missed the game with injury too) had 125 all-purpose yards as Montreal did just enough to stave off a late Saskatchewan comeback. "Thats all we preach is team-first," said Richardson, who set up Montreals first touchdown -- an 18-yard pass from Anthony Calvillo to Bo Bowling -- with a 51-yard grab of his own. "Thats why I was never mad about my production because other guys were stepping up, and right now this is a total team effort." Richardson was referring to his diminished role in Montreal this year. He led the league in receiving last season with 1,777 yards but entered Saturdays game third on the team and 12th overall with 793. In his last two games, however, Richardson has caught 11 passes for 270 yards. "The coaches leaned on me a little bit," he said. "They told me they were going to feed me and Im hungry. Ive been missing the whole season and now its time to step up and time to win a championship." The win extended Montreals lead atop the CFLs East Division by six points over the Toronto Argonauts. The Alouettes (10-6) clinched first place Friday when Toronto lost 44-32 to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Saskatchewan (8-Cool meanwhile missed a chance for the second straight week to clinch a playoff berth, though a Hamilton Tiger-Cats loss to the Calgary Stampeders later Saturday would guarantee the Riders at least a crossover spot. Montreal made the most of the breezy conditions, scoring their first 27 points with the wind at its back With the wind gusting to over 50 km/h at kickoff, Saskatchewan capped its first possession with a one-yard TD toss from Drew Willy to fullback Graeme Bell. It was Bells first touchdown since joining his hometown team in 2011 and third overall of his seven-year CFL career. Montreal took advantage of the wind in the second quarter and put up 13 unanswered points on three consecutive possessions. Calvillo found Bowling in the end zone in between Sean Whyte field goals of 23 and 52 yards. But the Riders regained the lead with two minutes left in the first half when Dressler ran a punt back 66 yards for Saskatchewans first punt return score since Jason Armstead did so in 2007 against the Edmonton Eskimos. 2016 UGG Boots Black Friday UK. Backup QB Adrian McPhersons one-yard touchdown run in the third quarter gave Montreal the lead for good. He scored at 8:23 of the third after a pass interference call negated a goal-line interception by Chris McKenzie and an unnecessary roughness penalty to Odell Willis set Montreal up at the Riders three-yard line. Calvillo then ran in two touchdowns for the first time in his CFL career to cap a run of 21 unanswered points and put the game out of reach. He completed 14 of 26 passes for 256 yards. "Im trying to pick up first downs with my feet," said Calvillo. "I told myself I was going to do that as we get closer to the playoffs. It just helps our football team move forward and it just happened to be that I was running close to the end zone." It was a botched onside punt by Sandro DeAngelis that gave Montreal the ball on the Riders 45 and set up Calvillos first score of the game. They needed all of them too, as Saskatchewan answered back in the final quarter with Dresslers 12th TD grab of the year and Kory Sheets 10th rushing score. "Weve been challenging ourselves to play consistent football which we have not done," said Calvillo. "We did a decent job last week against Toronto and we wanted to follow up with a great game which today we did." Riders quarterback Darian Durant went 24-for-40 for 219 yards and one TD. Sheets ran 10 times for 45 yards but had two late-game passes go through his fingers, and Taj Smith led Saskatchewans receivers with four catches for 52 yards. "My biggest concern is to make sure this team is winning football games," said Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin. "The playoffs dont start today. They start when they start. Its about winning football games. "Looking too far down the road you cant do anything unless you take care of today and today we have to learn how to win football games." NOTES: Calvillo has now thrown a touchdown pass in 16 straight games ... Saskatchewan and Montreal were the two least-penalized teams in the league entering Week 17 but combined Saturday for 220 yards in penalties, including the second-quarter ejection of Shea Emery after he appeared to punch a Saskatchewan lineman in the groin ...
