The Los Angeles Angels will try to make it seven straight series wins as they visit the Blue Jays.

The Los Angeles Angels are absolutely on fire. They have won six straight series and have officially turned their series around after an abysmal first month of the 2012 season. The Angels bats came to life in a big way at Camden yards over the last two days, as Los Angeles decimated the Baltimore Orioles en route to a two-game sweep.

On Thursday, the Angels head north of the border to play a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Blue Jays have been a strong and talented team this season, but of late they have been absolutely ravaged by injuries. Nearly all of their starting pitchers have all found themselves on the disabled list in the span of a couple of weeks. While the lineup remains formidable, their pitching must appear incredibly enticing to the Angels at the moment.

TV Schedule & Probable Pitchers

Thursday's opener will begin at 4:07 p.m. PT and will be televised on FOX Sports West. You can catch the radio broadcast on KLAA 830. Brett Cecil will get the start for Toronto. He has been 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA since being recalled from Triple-A. He'll face Dan Haren, who has been hit hard lately and is still trying to claw his way back to a .500 record.

First pitch on Friday will be at 4:07 p.m. PT and the game will be televised on FOX Sports West. You can catch the radio broadcast on KLAA 830. Carlos Villanueva has been solid out of the bullpen for the Jays this year but will be making his first start of the season on Friday. He'll take on the 4-8 Ervin Santana.

On Saturday, the game will begin at 10:07 a.m. PT and will be televised on FOX Sports West. You can catch the radio broadcast on KLAA 830. Henderson Alvarez gets the ball for the Blue Jays and enters the game with a 4-6 record and 4.36 ERA. Garrett Richards tries to stay strong as he switches from replacing Jered Weaver in the rotation to replacing Jerome Williams. Richards is 2-0 with a 1.63 ERA.

Sunday's finale starts at 12:07 p.m. PT and will be televised on FOX Sports West. You can catch the radio broadcast on KLAA 830. Aaron Laffey, a left-hander, will make his second start. He is 0-0 with a 1.80 ERA. Laffey will take on C.J. Wilson, who will be gunning for his 10th win.
