Goodbye .500! Dino goes 2-0 in 2014!

Final score in Toronto, Game 2: Angels 5, Blue Jays 3

WP: Tyler Skaggs / LP: J.A. Happ / S: Joe Smith

Fittingly, Mike Trout did not hit the ball on a day when every other batter in the lineup produced a hit or two. Trout did walk, though, and his .275 is rather annoying. Offensive 'Thank You' cards can be sent to C.J. Cron and Chris Iannetta. Iannetta's homer came in the second inning and Cron's in the third. The latter individual has been a very valuable asset since joining the lineup.

Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ never escaped the third inning and manager John Gibbons sent Todd Redman in for the takeover. From there on out, the Jays only allowed one more additional run. By the end, the Halos had five runs and it was all over.

Joe Smith, who had a blown save last night, redeemed himself with a save in the ninth inning. Ernesto Frieri had the day off and thus we had an easy-going Saturday afternoon.

Enjoy the day, folks.
