Cahill, DBacks Blank Angels

ANAHEIM (AP) — Trevor Cahill pitched three-hit ball into the eighth inning, Aaron Hill hit a three-run homer, and the Arizona Diamondbacks slowed the Los Angeles Angels’ roll through June with a 5-0 victory Friday night.

Jason Kubel had three hits and drove in an early run for the Diamondbacks, who earned their ninth win in 12 games and got back to .500 (32-32) for just the second time since May 3. Ryan Roberts had an RBI double after Hill’s homer in the Diamondbacks’ four-run sixth.

Cahill (5-5) largely overwhelmed the Angels in his third straight victory following a five-start winless streak. The right-hander struck out eight while retiring the first two batters in each of the first seven innings.

In their first trip to Angel Stadium since 2001, the Diamondbacks also beat Dan Haren, a two-time All-Star for Arizona facing his former teammates for the first time.
