Angels Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: 7-Run Second Inning Sinks L.A. In 11-2 Loss

Three games into a four-game series between the Los Angeles Angels and the Toronto Blue Jays, it has been far from a low-scoring affair. During Saturday's game, however, the Angels were held down by Toronto pitching as the Blue Jays walked to an 11-2 win to take a 2-1 edge in the series.

The Jays scored their first run in the bottom of the first inning during a Jose Bautista double play, but the wheels would truly come off in the bottom of the second, when Toronto plated a whopping seven runs against starter Garrett Richards. Yunel Escobar hit a two-run homer, a run scored on a fielding error by Peter Bourjos, Colby Rasmus had an RBI double, Bautista had an RBI single and came in to score on a throwing error by Mike Trout and then Trout uncharacteristically misplayed a Kelly Johnson hit into an RBI triple.

Trout was also ineffective at the plate for a change, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

Maicer Izturis finally doubled home Bobby Wilson in the top of the third to get the Halos on the board. Brett Lawrie hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the fifth to make it 11-1. Andrew Romine managed a two-out RBI single in the top of the ninth to give the Angels a second run, but that would prove to be the last gasp. Romine was 3-for-4 with a trio of singles during the game.

Richards ended up going just 4.1 innings and giving up 10 runs (five earned) on nine hits and four walks.

The Halos will try to salvage a series split in the finale on Sunday.

Angels Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: Winning Streak Comes To An End With 7-5 Loss

On Friday, the Los Angeles Angels played the second game of their four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre. The two teams showed once again that they really enjoy scoring runs off of each other, but this time it was the Angels who wound up on the losing end, snapping their four-game winning streak with a 7-5 loss.

Starters Ervin Santana and Carlos Villanueva kept the game scoreless until the third inning, when Torii Hunter got the Halos on the board with an RBI single. Erick Aybar made it 2-0 Angels with a sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth, but the lead evaporated in the bottom of the fourth inning.

The Blue Jays pulled ahead with a five-run fourth inning that included RBI singles by Edwin Encarnacion and Yunel Escobar and a three-run home run from Adam Lind.

Albert Pujols hit an RBI double in the top of the fifth, then John Hester hit a two run homer to tie things up 5-5 in the seventh inning. In the bottom of the seventh, however, Escobar hit a go-ahead RBI double. Lind hit his second home run of the game in the bottom of the eighth, tacking on an insurance run with a shot to left field.

Jordan Walden, who gave up the Escobar double, was handed the loss. The Angels will be back at it on Saturday, trying to pick up another win to at least ensure a series split.

Angels Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: Halos Win 9-7 Slugfest

The Los Angeles Angels kicked off a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre on Thursday. The opener proved to be quite a slugfest, but the Halos prevailed in the end with a 9-7 win. It was the fourth straight win for the Angels.

Alberto Callaspo opened the scoring in the top of the second inning with a solo home run to give the Angels the lead, but Yunel Escobar tied things up in the bottom of the frame with an RBI groundout. In the bottom of the third, Jeff Mathis led off with a home run to make it 2-1 Blue Jays.

In the top of the fourth, Mark Trumbo hit a 2-run homer -- his 19th of the season -- to put the Halos back on top. Albert Pujols added a sacrifice fly to make it 4-2 Los Angeles. In the bottom of the fourth, Rajai Davis hit a sac fly of his own to cut into the lead.

Howie Kendrick hit an RBI single in the top of the fifth to make it 5-3 Halos, but Jose Bautista launched a three-run homer in the bottom of the inning and allowed Toronto to reclaim a 6-5 lead.

The Angels put up their second three-run inning in the top of the sixth, as Peter Bourjos hit an RBI ground-rule double to tie things up and two batters later, Mike Trout hit his eighth home run of the year to make it 8-6 Halos.

Brett Lawrie hit an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh to make it a one-run game once again. The Jays tried to pick up the tying run run on a slow chopper by Bautista, but Erick Aybar was able to throw the runner out at home, preserving the Angels lead.

Trumbo gave the Angels a big insurance run with an RBI triple in the top of the ninth inning. Trumbo finished the day with two hits and three RBI, while Pujols was 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles.

Ernesto Frieri was able to get the four-out save, entering the game with two outs in the eighth inning. With one out in the ninth, Frieri loaded the bases for Edwin Encarnacion. Luckily, Frieri was able to get the double-play to secure the win.

Angels starter Dan Haren gave up six runs on seven hits and a walk in six innings of work.
