TORONTO (AP) Tyler Skaggs pitched into the ninth inning and retired 21 straight batters, leading the Los Angeles Angels over the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 Saturday.

Rookie C.J. Cron hit his first major league homer and Chris Iannetta added a two-run shot as Angels won their fifth in a row at Toronto.

Tyler Skaggs (3-1) gave up two earned runs and four hits, leaving after Jose Reyes and Melky Cabrera started the bottom of the ninth with back-to-back singles.

Skaggs retired Dioner Navarro on a fly ball to end the first inning and didn't permit another runner until the eighth.

Joe Smith got his fourth save in six chances.

Making his second start since moving from the bullpen into the rotation last Monday, J.A. Happ (1-1) lasted just 2 1-3 innings, allowing four runs and seven hits.
