TORONTO (AP) Shohei Ohtani helped the Los Angeles Angels finally scrounge up some runs just in time.

Ohtani hit a tying two-run single, Andrelton Simmons added another two-run hit and the Angels rallied to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4 on Wednesday night.

Simmons went 2 for 5 and right fielder Kole Calhoun made a game-saving throw in the bottom of the ninth as the Angels scored more than three runs for just the second time in their past 11 games.
