Angels Vs. Blue Jays, Game 3 Final Score: With Albert Pujols Out Of Lineup, Halos Manage 6-2 Win

The slumping Albert Pujols got the night off on Saturday, but the Los Angeles Angels got along just fine without him, scoring their first runs in two games and winning by a final score of 6-2.

The Angels got their scoring started in the bottom of the second inning on an RBI single by Bobby Wilson. The Blue Jays answered back in the top of the fourth, tying things up on a Jose Bautista RBI single. Mike Trout put the angels ahead for good in the bottom of the fifth on a solo home run by Mike Trout.

The Halos tacked on three more runs in the bottom of the sixth on a rally that included a Mark Trumbo homer and a sacrifice fly by Trout. Adam Lind led off the top of the seventh with a home run, but 5-2 would be as close as the Blue Jays would get for the remainder of the game. The Angels tacked on one more insurance run in the bottom of the eighth when Kendrys Morales singled home Trout.

Trout, Trumbo, Wilson and Alberto Callaspo all had two-hit games, while Morales had three hits in the win. Torii Hunter, hitting in the No. 3 spot in lieu of Pujols, was 0-for-4 with a walk.

Los Angeles starter C.J. Wilson was quite effective, giving up two runs in eight innings of work on six hits and three walks, while striking out nine. Ernesto Frieri came in for the top of the ninth and sealed the deal for the Angels.

The Angels will attempt to salvage a series split as they go for a win in the series finale on Sunday.
