While J.B. Shuck didn't do this again, the Angels still powered through the Blue Jays in tonight's game. The Halos got to work early against Esmil Rogers when Mark Trumbo, Erick Aybar, and Chris Nelson all earned an RBI in the first inning. Then in the fifth inning Kole Calhoun launched the ball into the seats for the second straight game. Good to see someone picking up after Josh Hamilton's lack of a quick home run pace. Also in the fifth inning, an error by Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia allowed three more runs to score.
Jered Weaver continued to show he has plenty of stamina and pitched 7.2 innings and gave up just three runs. Brett Lawrie powered a home run beyond the wall and Edwin Encarnacion lined the ball into the outfield, which allowed Jose Bautista to score. Arencibia attempted to redeem his error with an RBI but that wasn't enough to knockdown the Angels. Dane De La Rosa came on in relief and held it down for one more out. And out in the ninth was Kevin Jepsen.
That's all, folks. Tomorrow's game is at 12:35pm and the Halos look to complete the four game sweep over the Jays. Will they do it? On the hill is Mark Buerhle while C.J. Wilson takes to the mound for the home team.
