  Angels starter C.J. Wilson seemed to be having one of those nights where he just couldn't command the strike zone. The lefty sweated through seven laborious innings, walking four Blue Jays, yet managing to strike out six while holding the birds to just three earned runs.    His offense picked him up, touching up knuckle-baller R.A Dickey for seven hits and another four runs. Mark Trumbo and Josh Hamilton, the suddenly awakened two-headed beast/monster, continued to tattoo baseballs all over the Rogers Centre. Trumbo clobbered his career-high 33rd home run of the season to open up the Halo scoring, and Hamilton added three more hits and a walk.   Not to be forgotten is Kole Calhoun, who drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth off Jays reliever Steve Delabar. The right-fielder hit a sacrifice fly to send Mike Trout across the plate for the 101st time this season; more on that later.   Dane De La Rosa and Ernesto Frieri sealed the deal in the eighth and ninth innings. The Angels have now won 13 of their last 20 games.   Angels 5, Blue Jays 4   -----   Game Notes   -- Mike Trout continues to score runs. After scoring his 100th run tonight, he became the first Angel since Troy Glaus 2000-2001. The kid is nuts.   -- Kole Calhoun has driven in 11 runs in his last 10 games. He is sporting a .394/.429/.606 triple slash in the month of September. Overall, the outfielder is at .291/.366/.496 in 127 at-bats. Fans might have to get used to the idea of possibly saying goodbye to Peter Bourjos this winter.   ------   Halo Hero of the Game     Kole Calhoun for delivering the decisive run.
