ANAHEIM, Calif., May 15 (UPI) -- Tyson Ross and three relievers combined on an eight-hit shutout Monday, elevating the Oakland Athletics to a 5-0 whitewash of the Los Angeles Angels.

Ross (2-3) tamed the Angels on five hits over six full innings, issuing one walk while fanning two batters in breaking a personal three-game losing streak.

Grant Balfour, Jordan Norberto and Ryan Cook each tossed a scoreless relief frame to complete the shutout, giving the A's a victory in the first contest of a two-game series at Angels Stadium.

Seth Smith provided a two-run double and Josh Reddick smacked a solo homer in Oakland's triumph.

Dan Haren (1-4) absorbed his third straight loss for Los Angeles, surrendering four runs on six hits in a six-inning effort.

The Angels played without star outfielder Torii Hunter, who was placed on the restricted list for unspecified personal reasons.

The move came after reports surfaced that Hunter's 17-year-old son had been arrested on sexual assault charges in Texas.
