Ohtani (6-3) struck out 12 batters in seven innings but allowed a solo home run to Freddie Freeman in the fourth inning, the only run he allowed in the game.
The Angels went scoreless in the two-game series, shut out by the same 2-0 score on Tuesday. Also like Tuesday, they had a runner thrown out at the plate in Wednesday's game
With one out and Luis Rengifo (double) on third base in the third inning, Mickey Moniak hit a soft liner to shallow left field, where David Peralta made the catch. Rengifo tagged and tried to score, but Peralta made a perfect throw with catcher Will Smith applying the tag.
Rengifo had both of the Angels' two hits, while Ohtani went 0-for-3 with a walk at the plate
Ohtani allowed only one Dodger to reach base through the first three innings as Jason Heyward legged out an infield single in the second inning. In the fourth, Freeman hit Ohtani's second pitch of the inning over the fence in left-center for his 14th home run of the season and a 1-0 Dodgers lead
Before the game, the Dodgers called up pitcher Michael Grove, who was expected to start the game. Instead, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts decided to go with a bullpen game, sending reliever Brusdar Graterol to the mound for the first inning
Graterol pitched two scoreless innings, and he was followed by Victor Gonzalez (2-2) and Yency Almonte, each of whom threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings. Almonte retired the first two Angels hitters in the fifth before Rengifo singled, his second hit of the night
Almonte was replaced by Alex Vesia, who walked Andrew Velazquez, moving Rengifo to second. But Vesia retired pinch hitter Hunter Renfroe on a fly ball to end the threat.
Ryan Brasier threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings, and he was followed by Caleb Ferguson (eighth inning) and Evan Phillips (ninth inning, ninth save) to close it out.
