TORONTO -- For the Toronto Blue Jays, this was singles night. Invite single men and women to mingle during the game, sitting next to one person from the opposite sex for a few minutes and then moving quickly to another, with this slogan: 25 Dates, 9 Innings. For the Angels, this was singles night too, with this slogan: 9 Innings, 1 Run. For the second consecutive night, the Angels failed to get an extra-base hit and failed to win.

Right-hander Ervin Santana thought his changeup was his best pitch against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. Manager Mike Scioscia said Santana's fastball command was his most effective weapon. Told of Scioscia's comment, Santana chuckled and said, "He's not pitching, I'm pitching." Why quibble? The way Santana was locating his fastball, changeup and slider, and the way Toronto hitters were hacking — these guys make those Vladimir Guerrero-led Angels clubs of a few years ago look like the princes of plate discipline — just about everything Santana threw toward the plate was his best pitch.

The term "staff ace" is not one Jered Weaver throws around lightly. He knows it's a title that must be earned, not handed to you by default because your buddy John Lackey, the team's top pitcher the last four years, left as a free agent. Asked repeatedly this spring about being his team's new ace, Weaver was reluctant to accept the label, saying, "I don't get caught up in that kind of stuff — I just go out there and throw the ball and let the chips fall where they may." The chips are falling, and Weaver is the Angels pitcher with the big stack in front of him. The right-hander looked every bit the staff ace Friday night, boosting a struggling team and rotation by throwing seven superb innings in the Angels' 7-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays in the Rogers Centre.

Trevor Bell was rocked for six runs and six hits in 1 2/3 innings of an 8-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays in the Rogers Centre today, throwing the back of the Angels rotation into a state of uncertainty . . . again. Because of the tragic death of Nick Adenhart in April and numerous injuries, the Angels have patched their rotation together using 13 different starters this season, five of them rookies, and they have pretty much exhausted their in-house options. Sean O'Sullivan appeared to be an answer, going 3-0 with a 3.72 earned-run average in his first five big league starts.

Kevin Lovell's 33-yard field goal with 8 minutes 49 seconds left in the fourth quarter lifted Cincinnati to a 27-24 victory over Western Michigan on Saturday in the inaugural International Bowl, the first college bowl played in Canada and first outside the United States since 1937. The game was played in front of a Rogers Centre crowd of 26,717. It was just under what the CFL's Toronto Argonauts averaged last season. The Bearcats led, 24-0, early in the second quarter.

Chad Pennington and the Miami Dolphins took advantage of an indifferent Bills "home" crowd, an inept Buffalo offense and the cozy indoors of the Rogers Centre to stay firmly in playoff contention. Pennington completed 23 passes, including his final 11 attempts, and also connected with Anthony Fasano for a 20-yard touchdown as the Dolphins (8-5) won for the sixth time in seven games, 16-3.
