Angels Vs. Blue Jays, Game 2 Final Score: Halos Shut Out Again In 4-0 Loss

The Los Angeles Angels have come crashing down to earth after their first season sweep culminated in a Jered Weaver no-hitter on Wednesday night. They've now been shut out on back-to-back nights by the visiting Toronto Blue Jays following a 4-0 loss on Friday night.

Ervin Santana, despite striking out 10 and allowing just three runs over eight innings of work, falls to 0-6 on the season. Henderson Alvarez was more effective for the Blue Jays, improving to 2-2 with a complete game shutout, giving up six hits and one walk.

The top of the third was the killer for the Angels, as the Blue Jays scored on a Yunel Escobar RBI single, followed by a two-run Jose Bautista homer. The Jays tacked on their fourth run with an RBI groundout in the top of the ninth.

Albert Pujols was 0-for-4 and slides below the Mendoza line, now hitting .194 for the season. The Angels will need to win the next two games in order to salvage a series split with Toronto.

Eric Kay notes that this is the first time in team history that the Angels have been involved in four consecutive shutouts. They're 2-2 over those last four games.
