    Jays drop Halos behind Halladay's four-hitter

    TORONTO (AP) -- Roy Halladay pitched a four-hitter and Bengie Molina and Alex Rios homered to lead the Toronto Blue Jays over the struggling Los Angeles Angels 5-1 Monday night.

    The Angels have lost nine of 11. They managed just two hits total on Sunday against Blue Jays rookie Casey Janssen and closer B.J. Ryan.

    Halladay (4-1) didn't allow a hit until Tommy Murphy led off the sixth with a double. One batter later, Orlando Cabrera hit an RBI single to cut the Toronto lead to 5-1.

    Halladay improved to 3-0 in four starts since missing time due to a right forearm strain in mid-April, and he appeared to have a little more velocity on his pitches in his latest outing. The 2003 AL Cy Young winner struck out a season-high six and walked one for the 21st complete game of his career and the first of the season for Toronto.

    Angels starter Jeff Weaver (1-5) didn't allow a hit until Lyle Overbay singled in the fifth. Eric Hinske followed with an RBI double to give the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead. Shea Hillenbrand fouled out but Molina then hit a two-run homer, stomping on home plate when he scored against his former team.

    Rios also had a two-run homer in the fifth to make it 5-0.

    Weaver allowed five runs and seven hits in 6 1-3 innings.

    Toronto shortstop Russ Adams, who made two errors on Sunday, threw the ball into the stands for an error in the fourth and almost did it again in the sixth on a routine double play.
