TORONTO (AP) -- Rookie Mike Trout hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, Mark Trumbo and Alberto Callaspo added two-run shots and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-6 on Sunday. Trout led off the eighth with a blast to center against Francisco Cordero (3-5) as the Angels spoiled Toronto's Canada Day party and disappointed the crowd of 34,853. One out later, Albert Pujols singled and Trumbo, named an All-Star reserve before the game, followed with a drive to left, his 20th homer this season. Trout went 2 for 4 with a walk and scored three times, raising his AL-leading average to .339. Jason Isringhausen (3-0) worked one inning for the win despite allowing J.P. Arencibia's tying home run in the seventh, and Los Angeles earned a split in the four-game series. Colby Rasmus hit a three-run homer off Jordan Walden in the ninth, his 15th, but it wasn't enough for Toronto. The Angels snapped a two-game losing streak and improved to 15-3 in their past 18 road games. Los Angeles opened the scoring in the first thanks to a defensive miscue by Rajai Davis, who started in right field in place of Jose Bautista. Trout led off with a double and tagged up on Pujols' one-out fly ball to right, coming around to score when Davis dropped the ball. Callaspo made it 3-0 with a two-run shot to left in the fifth, his sixth of the season and second this series. The Blue Jays chased Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson and scored two runs in a controversial sixth. Omar Vizquel walked, Brett Lawrie singled and Colby Rasmus walked to load the bases for Bautista, who hit a grounder to second that eluded Howie Kendrick. Vizquel scored and Rasmus ran from second to third but Lawrie didn't react, finally breaking for the plate as Rasmus approached the bag. Kendrick threw home just as Lawrie crashed into catcher John Hester, appearing to lift his forearms prior to the collision and striking Hester across the face. That brought Mike Scioscia out of the dugout for a furious argument with plate umpire James Hoye, one that ended with the Angels manager being ejected for the third time this season. It was the second time Scioscia had left the dugout to argue with Hoye; the two also exchanged words in the fourth after Hoye appeared to change a strike call to a ball, granting Edwin Encarnacion a walk. When play resumed, Wilson walked Encarnacion a second time and was replaced by LaTroy Hawkins. Yunel Escobar flied to right and Rasmus was thrown out at home by Torii Hunter before pinch hitter Adam Lind ended the rally by grounding out. Toronto tied it in the seventh when Arencibia connected off Isringhausen, his 11th, but Trout and Trumbo's homers in the eighth put the Angels ahead for good. Los Angeles capped it with a four-run ninth. Hunter hit a sacrifice fly, Pujols and Peter Bourjos added RBI singles and Kendrys Morales drove in a run with a fielder's choice. Wilson failed to extend his winning streak to six games, allowing two runs, one earned, and three hits in five innings. The left-hander, who has not lost since May 17 against the Chicago White Sox, walked five and struck out three. Toronto left-hander Aaron Laffey allowed three runs, two earned, and four hits in six innings. He walked none and struck out four. NOTES: Bautista was named to the AL's All-Star starting lineup before the game, his third selection. Bautista will be the lone Blue Jays representative, with Encarnacion overlooked. ... Trumbo was one of four Angels players named as All-Star reserves, joining Trout, Wilson and RHP Jered Weaver. ... 2B Kelly Johnson was held out of Toronto's starting lineup and replaced by Vizquel. ... Toronto signed RHP Chase DeJong, their second round pick in last month's draft.
