Angels Vs. Blue Jays, Game 1 Final Score: Halos Shut Out In 5-0 Loss

The Los Angeles Angels headed into Thursday night's opener against the Toronto Blue Jays still riding high on Jered Weaver's no-hitter and their first sweep of the season. Unfortunately, it is possible they were experiencing a celebration hangover, as they were almost completely shut down by the Jays in a 5-0 loss.

The Angels managed just three hits in the entire game. Two of those hits were by leadoff batter Mike Trout and the third was a double from Mark Trumbo, the only extra-base hit for the Halos in the game.

J.P. Arencibia's three-run homer in the top of the third inning proved to be the early knockout blow for the Angels, who couldn't solve the dominant Blue Jays starting pitcher.

Toronto starter Brandon Morrow improved to 3-1 with the complete-game shutout, surrendering just the three hits and no walks, while striking out eight. Los Angeles starter Dan Haren surrendered all five runs (three earned) on five hits and two walks in 7.1 innings.
