The Angels continued their four game set with the Toronto Blue Jays, as the teams squared off for game two, Friday night in Anaheim. The pitching match-up featured a pair of soft tossing right handers, as Jered Weaver took the hill for the Angels, and was opposed by Blue Jays’ right hander, R.A Dickey.

The two pitchers with high ERA total defied common logic as they were locked in a pitchers duel through six innings. Weaver only blemish through six was  two run home-run by Troy Tulowitzki.

While Dickey, scattered seven hits through five shutout innings. In the sixth, the Angels would load the bases but reliever, Joe Biagini retired the next three Angels in order to keep the Jays 2-0 lead in tact.

In the ninth, Josh Donaldson would hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Martin as the Jays extended their lead to 3-0. Next batter was Edwin Encarnacion, who would hit a two-run homer off Andrew Bailey, and giving the Jays a 5-0 lead. Robert Osuna came in to pitch the ninth in a non-save situation and walked the lead-off hitter. He would then retire the next three Angels and capped it off by striking C.J Cron to end the ballgame as the Jays shutout the Angels 5-0.
