Tom Koehler allowed four runs -- three earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Royals on Thursday.
Koehler gave up seven hits and walked two, but six strikeouts helped limit the damage. Still, the quality start wasn't enough to keep him from taking the loss. Koehler fell to 9-9 with a 3.85 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 26 starts overall. The right-hander will next square off with the Mets on Tuesday.
Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored as the Angels doubled up the Blue Jays 6-3 on Thursday.
Trout did all his damage with singles, plating two with a single in the sixth inning before coming through with another two-run single in the seventh. He's now got 82 RBI to go with 97 runs scored -- third-most in the American League -- and a .316/.432/.555 line. He also recently became a member of the 20/20 club, owning 24 homers and 21 steals through 126 games.
Melvin Upton went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored and a stolen base Thursday against the Angels.
He scored two of the Jays' three runs in the contest. It took Upton a little bit of time to find his footing in Toronto, but he's now got 11 hits in his last 36 at-bats, including three homers and two doubles. He's hitting just .217 since the trade, but Upton is batting .248/.294/.422 with 19 homers and 24 steals on the year.
Adam Jones left Thursday's game against the Nationals due to hamstring cramps.
Pedro Alvarez pinch-hit for him in the ninth inning. He went 1-for-3 with a double before exiting. Jones said that he feels fine and expects to play Friday against the Yankees. Nolan Reimold would likely start in his place if he has to sit out the series opener.
Jered Weaver held the Blue Jays to two runs -- one earned -- over 5 2/3 innings in a win Thursday.
Weaver scattered five hits, including a solo home run, and three walks while striking out four. The win was his first in over a month, improving him to 9-11 overall. The veteran right-hander, who some have begun to speculate might hang it up after this season, will carry a 5.31 ERA and 1.52 WHIP into Tuesday's interleague matchup with the Reds.
