Jays Shine in California Sun, beat Angels.

The Toronto Blue Jays (62-55)  managed to bounce back against the Los Angeles Angels (60-58) in the rubber match of the three-game series with a 4-1 victory.

Jays starting pitcher Ricky Romero (10-7) was able to outduel his Angels counterpart, Dan Haren (1-3 with Angels), through 7-innings before giving the ball up to Jason Frasor for a scoreless eighth inning, followed by a scoreless ninth inning and the save by Jays closer – Kevin Gregg (27th).

The Blue Jays offense was supplied by 5-6-7 hitters in the line-up, as Adam Lind cranked his 17th homerun of the season, while Aaron Hill drove in two runs and Lyle Overbay cashed in a run with a sacrifice fly.

The Jays will continue their California road trip with a three-game set against the Oakland Athletics
