The two teams that are most likely to be considered the biggest disappointments in 2013 are the Los Angeles Angels and the Toronto Blue Jays. So maybe it’s fitting that in the last two games against these teams they have seemed very evenly matched. Last night the Blue Jays took an early lead but the Angels battled back even when the Blue Jays scored again later in game. Tonight the two teams were once again evenly matched with a close one-run game. Angels starter Garrett Richards started off shaky putting the first two men on-base in the first inning. But Richards was able to limit the damage getting out with only one-run allowed. The Angels answered in the second when Grant Green drove in Chris Iannetta with an RBI single.The Angels took the lead in the third when Mark Trumbo knocked in Erick Aybar on a sacrifice single. But the Blue Jays hung tough and tied the game up after Jose Reyes took Garrett Richards deep on an inside fastball for his tenth home run of the year. This was followed up by an RBI double by Moises Sierra to give the Blue Jays the lead 3-2. Much like last night though the Angels immediately answered. Blue Jays starting pitcher J.A. Happ made a mistake and left an inside fastball right in Kole Calhoun‘s wheelhouse and the ginger made him pay taking him to deep right-center field. An inning later Mike Trout would do what he does with a ground rule double knocking in Erick Aybar who had doubled down the left-field line in the at-bat before.
