Final Score in Toronto: Angels 5 Blue Jays 4

Mark Trumbo hit his 33rd home run of 2013 and Angels batters hit three run-scoring sacrifice flies to squeak by the Blue Jays 5-4 in Toronto.

Josh Hamilton had a three hit game and Kole Calhoun hit two deep fly ball outs with men on 3B, one of htem breaking a 4-4 tie in the eighth inning.

C.J. Wilson nibbled away, walking four in seven innings while allowing four hits and four earned runs, but the well-compensated lefty struck out six Jays. Dane De La Rosa and Ernest Frieri had 1-2-3 innings for 8 & 9 and that was the ballgame.

Mike Trout was hitless but walked twice and scored two runs and has now scored 100 runs in the past two seasons. He joins Troy Glaus and Don Baylor as the only two Angels to score 100 or more in back to back seasons. He became only the seventh player in major league history to score 100 runs in his age 20 and 21 seasons. Check your milk carton for signs of Bryce Harper and light that baby up.
