The Los Angeles Angels have had trouble for all of this still-young 2017 season putting together good pitching and good hitting at the same time. They did just enough of that on Saturday as they defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4 in Anaheim.

Andrelton Simmons’ grand slam home run in the bottom of the third inning was the key hit, and Tyler Skaggs (1-1) held the visitors to two runs and two hits through seven innings of work. The victory lifted the Angels to 8-11, good for fourth place in the American League West.

Mike Trout had a single and a double to raise his average to .343. Singleton had a single to go with his round-tripper to up his to .288.

The Angels will send Daniel Wright to the mound on Sunday.
