Angels Drop Home Opener To Blue Jays

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Jayson Nix hit a tiebreaking two-out homer in the eighth inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays spoiled the Los Angeles Angels’ home opener with a 3-2 victory Friday night.

Adam Lind hit a tying two-run double in the sixth inning for the Blue Jays, who improved to 5-2 after Ervin Santana held them hitless into the fifth.

Vernon Wells made a forgettable home debut against the club that traded him to the Angels last winter, stranding five runners while going 0 for 4 with four inning-ending outs.

Santana (0-1) retired Toronto’s first 13 batters, yielding six hits in eight solid innings for the Angels. Torii Hunter and Howard Kendrick had two hits apiece, but the Angels lost their home opener for just the second time in eight years.
