Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - R.A. Dickey tossed seven scoreless innings and Jose Reyes finished 4-for-5 with a two-run homer and three RBI to spur Toronto's 4-0 victory over the Angels in the middle test of a three-game set.

Dickey (7-8) allowed four hits and a walk while fanning five, then Dustin McGowan and Aaron Loup followed with scoreless innings to cap the five-hitter.

Dioner Navarro knocked in the other run for the Blue Jays, who pounded out 14 hits en route to snapping a five-game slide which included a 5-2 defeat in Monday's opener.

Tyler Skaggs (4-5) gave up three runs on 11 hits across 6 2/3 frames for the Halos, whose five-game win streak came to an end.

Toronto finally broke through against Skaggs in the fifth. Munenori Kawasaki and Josh Thole hit consecutive one-out singles to place runners at the corners, and Reyes added a base hit to plate Kawasaki.

Kawasaki hit a one-out single in the seventh and came in two batters later when Reyes cleared the wall in left for a three-run margin.

The Jays went up 4-0 in the eighth, after Jose Bautista singled, stole second and scored on a Navarro base hit.

Dickey left two runners on in the second by inducing a fly out from Collin Cowgill, then retired 12 in a row until Mike Trout was thrown out at third trying to stretch a double to end the home sixth.

Chris Iannetta grounded to third with runners on the corners in the Los Angeles seventh, then a David Freese single with one away in the eighth was the hosts' lone runner in the final two innings.
