Toronto Blue Jays v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

ANAHEIM (AP) – Maicer Izturis hit a bases-loaded single in the 10th inning and the Los Angeles Angels beat Washington 4-3 on Monday night, spoiling Davey Johnson’s debut as Nationals manager.
Sean Burnett gave up a one-out single to Alberto Callaspo and a ground-rule double by Peter Bourjos — his fourth hit of the game.

An intentional walk to Bobby Wilson set the stage for Izturis, who grounded a 1-0 pitch through the middle.
Scott Downs (5-2) got the victory with a hitless inning.
The Angels were one out from a clean getaway in the ninth when closer Jordan Walden gave up a first-pitch homer to Danny Espinosa — the rookie’s third straight blown save and sixth in 23 chances
overall.
