ANAHEIM, Calif. Under Armour Sale Outlet . -- After a rough stretch, the Toronto Blue Jays have found a slice of paradise -- at least temporarily -- in this city known for being the home to Disneyland.With Edwin Encarnacion and Troy Tulowitzki leading the way with homers, the Blue Jays beat the Los Angeles Angels for the second night in a row, posting a 5-0 decision on Friday night at Angel Stadium. Starter R.A. Dickey and the bullpen combined for the shutout.The win allowed Toronto to end a four-series losing streak this month. The Blue Jays, who are 5-9 in September, dropped series to the Tampa Bay Rays (twice), the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox before meeting the Angels.I thought we had a great approach tonight, battled, good win for us, said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons, whose club also remained tied for the top wild-card spot with the Baltimore Orioles and two games back of Boston for the American League East lead.The Blue Jays hadnt lost four series in a row since June 30-July 12, 2015, when they fell to the Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals. At worst, they secured a split with the Angels in this four-game series that concludes Sunday.On Saturday, the Blue Jays will rely on LHP Francisco Liriano (7-12, 5.16 ERA) to keep the good vibes flowing. Liriano will oppose Angels RHP Ricky Nolasco (5-14, 4.94) in the third game of the series.Liriano was solid in his last outing on Sept. 12 against the Rays, striking out six, walking one and allowing two runs and three hits in a no-decision and a 3-2 Blue Jays win.I dont know how he could have been any better in that last time out, Gibbons said. What was really good to me was he hadnt pitched in a while. His stuff has always been there and hes a dominating guy, but he keeps dealing with control problems even though that wasnt the case that night. That could be very big for him.Liriano, who the Blue Jays acquired Aug. 1 in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates, would enjoy a bouce-back performance against the Angels, who have hit him hard in the past. Liriano has a 2-5 mark with a 6.61 ERA in 10 games (nine starts) against Los Angeles.In his last start against them as a member of the Pirates, Liriano was shelled for seven runs (six earned) and 10 hits in a 9-2 romp by the Angels on June 3.Nolasco has pitched well since the Angels obtained him from the Minnesota Twins, but he has little to show for it. Despite being 1-6 in his last eight starts, he has gone at least six innings in all but one of those outings.Nolasco was charged with the loss in his last start Monday against the Seattle Mariners, working six innings and giving up four runs, six hits with three strikeouts and a walk.In his career against Toronto, Nolasco, who was acquired by the Angels from the Twins on Aug. 1, is 0-0 with a 4.91 ERA.Angels manager Mike Scioscia is hoping Nolasco and his club can put some heat on the Blue Jays and snap a five-game skid.All in all, we just didnt pressure those guys enough, Scioscia said of the clubs loss on Friday.
