Wilson wins again, Angels top Jays 5-4

TORONTO (AP) - Kole Calhoun hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, C.J. Wilson won his eighth straight decision and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4 on Wednesday night.

Mark Trumbo hit a two-run home run, his career-high 33rd, and Josh Hamilton had three hits as the Angels won for the ninth time in 12 meetings with the Blue Jays.

Mike Trout drew a one-out walk off Steve Delabar (5-3) in the eighth and went to third on Hamilton's double. Trumbo was intentionally walked to load the bases for Calhoun, who hit a sacrifice fly to left.

Calhoun went 1 for 2 with two sacrifice flies, helping the Angels win for the fifth time in seven games.

Wilson (16-6) allowed four runs, three earned, in seven innings to match his career-high in victories, first set with Texas in 2011. The left-hander, who has not lost since July 5 against Boston, walked four and struck out six. He's 12-1 with a 3.02 ERA in 17 starts since June 14.

Dane De La Rosa worked the eighth and Ernesto Frieri finished for his 32nd save in 36 chances.

Moises Sierra went 3 for 4 with two doubles and a triple, but it wasn't enough for the Blue Jays.

Toronto took a 3-0 lead with a two-out rally in the first. Sierra doubled home Rajai Davis and Adam Lind, who had both walked, then scored on a throwing error by shortstop Erick Aybar, who overthrew first base on Mark DeRosa's infield single.

The Angels answered with two runs in the second off Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey. Hamilton drew a leadoff walk and Trumbo followed with second-deck blast to center, his sixth consecutive hit. Trumbo went 5 for 5 in Tuesday's 12-6 win.

Trumbo's homer was the 31st off Dickey this season. Only Oakland's A.J. Griffin (33) has allowed more.

Los Angeles tied it on Calhoun's first sacrifice fly in the fourth, with Trout scoring his 100th run of the season. Trout is the third Angels player to record consecutive 100-run seasons and just the seventh player in big league history to do it at ages 20 and 21. The last was Alex Rodriguez, who scored 100 runs in 1996 and 1997.

Toronto reclaimed the lead in the bottom half when Sierra led off with a triple and scored on an error by third baseman Andrew Romine, who couldn't handle Aybar's relay throw.

The Angels tied it again in the fifth. Grant Green hit a leadoff double and scored two batters later on Aybar's sacrifice fly.

Dickey had pitched at least six innings in his previous 15 starts but failed to extend the streak. The knuckleballer allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings, walked two and struck out two.

NOTES: Blue Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion (left wrist) missed his third straight game. Manager John Gibbons said Encarnacion has not been able to hit off a tee or in the cage since Sunday because of lingering pain. ... On the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, members of the Toronto Police Services, Toronto Fire Department and Toronto Emergency Medical Services participated in the national anthems.
