TORONTO (CP) -- Josh Hamilton drove in four runs and Mark Trumbo had a career-best five hits and equalled a club record with four extra-base hits on Tuesday as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 12-6. Trumbo hit three doubles, a single and a solo home run to drive in two runs and Hamilton had two singles and a solo home run as the Angels snapped a six-game winning streak by left-hander Mark Buehrle (11-8). It was the 10th time an Angels player had four extra-base hits in a game. Trumbo also became the first Angels player with five hits and five runs in one game. Erick Aybar also hit a solo homer and Chris Iannetta hit a two-run homer as the Angels (68-76) stopped a two-game slide. Anthony Gose hit his first career grand slam and Rajai Davis hit a solo homer for the Blue Jays (67-77), who had won their previous three games and 10 of 13. Right-hander Jerome Williams (7-10) allowed nine hits and six runs in five-plus innings to win his second consecutive start. Buehrle gave up 12 hits and eight runs in four-plus innings to lose his first decision since July 20, a span of nine starts without a loss. Left-hander Ricky Romero, the Blue Jays No. 1 starter only two years ago, made his third major-league appearance of the season in the seventh and allowed two hits, a walk and one run in his first outing since being recalled from triple-A Buffalo as a September callup. Aybar hit his sixth homer of the season and Hamilton hit a two-run single to key the Angels four-run first inning. Grant Green singled in the other run as Buehrle allowed five hits and a walk. Goses grand slam in the second inning tied the game. His first homer of the season came after singles by Adam Lind, J.P. Arencibia and Moises Sierra. Los Angeles regained the lead in the third on a leadoff double by Trumbo and Hamiltons single to centre. Hamilton took second base on Goses throwing error as he launched a needless throw to the plate that went to the backstop. The Angles took an 8-4 lead with three runs in the fifth. Trumbo led off with his 32nd homer of the season and Hamilton followed with his 20th. Chris Iannetta and Kole Calhoun followed with doubles. Buehrle was replaced by right-hander Chad Jenkins. Mike Trout led off the sixth with a single to extend his hit streak to 12 games and scored on Trumbos double against Jenkins. Chris Iannetta hit his ninth homer of the season to score two more runs to increase the lead to 11-4. Davis led off the home sixth with his fifth homer of the season. A walk to Arencibia and a double by Sierra led to Williams departure. Michael Kohn allowed a run-scoring groundout to Kevin Pillar. Trumbo singled for his fifth hit of the game in the eighth against Romero. He took second on an error by Davis on the hit to left and scored on Calhouns single. Notes: Blue Jays CF Colby Rasmus (left oblique strain) took batting practice Tuesday and manager John Gibbons said he might play in a game by the end of the week. Rasmus was put on the disabled list since Aug. 11 ....Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion (left wrist) did not play for the second game in a row and is listed as day to day. ... Angels 2B Howie Kendrick (hyper-extended right knee) has been activated from the disabled list but is not expected to play until Friday. He was put on the DL Aug. 10 retroactive to Aug. 6. ....The Blue Jays will start RHP R.A. Dickey (12-12, 4.29 earned-run average) against Angels LHP C.J. Wilson (15-6, 3.42 ERA). Terrelle Pryor Jersey . New York then missed its next six shots and scored only two points the rest of the night. The Los Angeles Clippers defence and the Knicks general ineptitude both played a role in the unsurprising finish to a meeting of two teams headed in opposite directions. Brandon Scherff Jersey .The league also seems to have a fairly active Twitter account www.twitter.com/bikinihockey that features the description “We provide a positive alternative to the hockey community and a venue for adult female hockey athletes to continue in their sport. http://www.theredskinsshoponline.com/Brian-Quick-Redskins-Jersey/. Henderson (20-3) received winning scores of 48-47 and 49-46, and the other judge scored it 48-47 for Thomson (20-6). The announcement drew boos from the United Center crowd. "Train this hard for this long, its such a long camp and I see my title shot disappear," said Thomson, who fought most of the fight with a broken right hand. Sammy Baugh Jersey . Or how his team has defended Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Or just about anything that has happened on the court in the first-round playoff series. Instead, Rivers and his players spent Saturday talking about how they would respond to an audio recording of a man identified as Clippers owner Donald Sterling telling his girlfriend not to bring black people to games.

With nothing tangible at stake, the Raptors turned in their most impressive outing of the fall in their seventh and second to last exhibition tilt against their stiffest competition yet, but they lost a couple starters in the process. LOS ANGELES -- Jeff Hornacek and Doc Rivers played against each other for 13 seasons in the NBA. This was the first time they matched up as head coaches in a game that counted, and Hornaceks Phoenix Suns gave the Los Angeles Clippers a not-so-subtle reminder of how quickly turnovers can turn into fast-break points. Goran Dragic had 26 points and eight assists before sitting out the fourth quarter, Gerald Green added 21 points off the bench, and the Suns ended the year with a 107-88 rout of the Clippers on Monday night. The Clippers went up against a team that began the day averaging a league-best 19.1 fast-break points, and allowed 18 for the game. Phoenix scored the first nine points, seven off three Clippers turnovers. The Suns converted 20 turnovers into 20 points overall, including a three-point play by Dragic that gave them a 45-34 lead with 4:55 left in the first half. "This is our game. We try to play a fast, up-tempo game, and I think things are going to be much better if you play like that," Dragic said. "Playing a half-court game is really tough for us, so we have to push the ball and try to get everybody involved. And when we get into the open court, we have all those open shooters." The Suns have won 10 of their last 12 after a 9-9 start and trail the defending Pacific Division champion Clippers by a half-game for the top spot. "It was a huge win for us, especially in L.A.," Dragic said. "We knew it was going to be a hard game. Theyre a really good team, a playoff team, and they have a lot of stars. So our job was to play them strong -- especially in the first half -- and force them to play our rhythm. We did a good job of that." Blake Griffin and Jamal Crawford each scored 15 points for Los Angeles, while Chris Paul had 11 points and seven assists. It was the most lopsided loss of the season for the Clippers, who beat the Suns the previous three times they hosted them -- by an average margin of 20 points. "I think we did a good job of being really unselfish and looking for each other," said Channing Frye, who put the clamps on Griffin following his 40-point effort over Utah on Saturday night. "We had 26 assists, so we did a better job of pushing the pace and executing. Its not like wwere shooting off the wall, but guys are taking the right shots most of the time.ddddddddddddHopefully we can remember how hard we played tonight and can continue that into the new year so we can stay in that groove were in." The Suns were 12 for 31 on 3-pointers against the Clippers, who came in with the leagues best defence against 3-point shooting (32.7 per cent). Dragic, who averaged only 9.2 points in his 17 previous games against the Clippers, powered the Suns to a 61-40 halftime lead with 20 points. Green added 14 in the second quarter, including a trio of 3-pointers that helped fuel a 16-4 run in the final 4:08 of the half. "We have a tendency every once in a while to go into a lull and give up some easy baskets, but tonight I thought we were really alert," Hornacek said. "When they rolled to the basket, we were there to help. And when they kicked it out, the guys were rotating. We just challenged every shot, and they didnt have a lot of easy shots." Los Angeles got no closer than 16 in the second half. Griffin and Paul both sat out the fourth quarter with the Clippers trailing 88-59 through three. "They just kept pushing it at us," Paul said. "On a night like this when our offence isnt going, we have to be able to rely on our defence. Tonight we couldnt. I dont think they caught us off guard. We knew how they were going to play. They hit us in the mouth early, and they just dominated us through and through. Luckily it only counts as one loss." Eric Bledsoe, who came in as Phoenixs leading scorer with an 18.4 average, played his first game against the team he spent his first four NBA seasons with and finished with seven points and four assists in 31 minutes. NOTES: This will be the first time in franchise history that the Clippers make it to New Years Day without a losing streak of more than two games in a full season. ... Griffin has drawn a league-high 123 fouls. The Suns fouled him six times. ... None of the Clippers other 11 losses were by more than 14 points. ... Los Angeles C DeAndre Jordan played 21 scoreless minutes in the first half with 12 rebounds. He finished with two points and 19 boards. ... The Clippers took their only lead, 14-13, on a pair of free throws by Griffin.
