TORONTO (AP) – Ervin Santana won his fifth straight start, Vernon Wells homered against his former club and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-1 on Friday night.

 

Santana (9-8) was working on a shutout before Eric Thames homered with one out in the ninth.

But he recovered to complete a seven-hitter for his third complete game in four starts.

 

Santana struck out six and walked two while improving to 6-0 with a 1.50 ERA in his last nine starts, a stretch that includes a no-hitter at Cleveland on July 27.
