Indications that Blue Jays run scoring slump may be easing:

Jays Phoenix over immolating Angels

Toronto Blue Jays were the Dark Angels of mercilessness for the faithful at Angels Stadium tonight, scoring 15 runs on 20 hits. Only 2 home runs (plating 5 runs) as this 9-cyclindar offense catches fire.

Toronto starting pitcher Marco Estrada (W, 11-7) threw an excellent five and two thirds innings relinquishing 2 solo home runs late as he challenged the Angels hitters with a 10 run lead. Brett Cecil worked out of a jam caused by a Donaldson throwing error in the 6th - with one pitch. Then the team of Hawkins, Hendriks and Schultz held the Angels down for good, giving up just 1 hit over three innings stellar relief.

Felt guilty at the end.

(Not one of my worst quadruple-mixed metaphors).
