The Los Angeles Angels sent catcher Jeff Mathis to the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday for left-hander Brad Mills. A move involving Mathis had been expected since the Angels acquired Chris Iannetta from Colorado last Wednesday and installed him as the everyday catcher. Although Mathis is a strong defensive catcher, he batted just .174 with three homers and 22 RBIs in 2011. He is batting .194 with 26 homers since starting his major- league career in 2007. Mills made four starts for the Blue Jays last season, going 1-2 with a 9.82 ERA. He spent most of the season at triple-A Las Vegas, going 11-9.

Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski says he has made a contract offer to free agent Johnny Damon. Dombrowski confirmed the offer in a telephone interview with the Associated Press after telling reporters in Lakeland, Fla., that the Tigers were interested in signing the outfielder. Damon, 36, hit .286 with 24 homers for the New York Yankees last season. He likely would bat leadoff for the Tigers, filling the void left when Detroit dealt Curtis Granderson to the Yankees.

Roy Halladay didn't give the Los Angeles Angels a chance to recover from some sloppy fielding. Halladay pitched his major league-leading fifth complete game and the Toronto Blue Jays took advantage of four errors to beat the visiting Angels, 4-1, last night. Halladay (14-5) won his third straight start and improved to 10-1 with a 3.36 ERA at home this season. After giving up a leadoff walk to Gary Matthews Jr. in the second inning, Halladay retired the next 11 batters, a streak that ended with a bunt single by catcher Jeff Mathis leading off the sixth.

Oh no, not him again Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga isn't worried about Friday's reunion with umpire Jim Joyce when Detroit hosts Baltimore. Joyce says he's apprehensive and excited about it. When last they met on the same field June 2, Joyce cost Galarraga a perfect game when he blew a call at first base, ruling the Indians' Jason Donald safe on a groundout with two outs in the ninth. The veteran and respected umpire acknowledged he made the wrong call after the game, and apologized to Galarraga.

Major League Baseball dropped its five-game suspension of Mariners pitcher Cliff Lee, who could be healthy enough to make his Seattle debut by the end of this month. The 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner threw 70 pain-free pitches in a simulated game yesterday and was asked how eager he is to finally pitch for his new team in a game that means something. "I don't know if it can get any higher," Lee said. "For me, it's the start of the season. I've got to get back and help these guys win . . . I'm excited.

The video system wasn't working very well, so Ichiro Suzuki didn't get to study any of Roger Clemens' outings. He still managed to do pretty well against a banged-up Rocket. Suzuki had three hits off Clemens to equal another record, Felix Hernandez pitched seven sharp innings and the visiting Mariners beat the New York Yankees yesterday, 7-1, in the opener of a crucial series. "I was very anxious. The first time in my 7-year career that I thought I might say something mean to Carl Hamilton, our video coordinator," Suzuki cracked.

An afternoon of tremendous pitching by both sides came to this: The Seattle Mariners tried using backup catcher Jamie Burke on the mound in a 1-1 game. Detroit's scuffling offense gladly took advantage. Marcus Thames' sacrifice fly scored pinch-runner Michael Hollimon in the top of the 15th and the Tigers snapped a two-game skid with a 2-1 win over the host Mariners yesterday afternoon. After the two pitching staffs combined to keep both offenses off the scoreboard from the fifth inning on, the game took a comical turn.

IT TOOK only 54 seconds for umpires to confirm what they ruled they had seen in the fourth inning. It is going to take a lot longer for the Phillies to understand. "I think nobody really knows what the rule is, honestly," Tony Gwynn Jr. said. The situation: sixth inning, tie game, Gwynn on first base. Chase Utley lines a double to leftfield, where Marlins rookie Christian Yelich juggles the ball as he fields it off the ground. Phillies third-base coach Pete Mackanin waves Gwynn around third.

Angels 3, Rangers 2 ARLINGTON, Texas - Maicer Izturis rapped a two-out RBI single in the ninth and Los Angeles beat Texas in another tough-luck start for Angels righthander Dan Haren. Izturis hit a liner to left off Darren Oliver (1-4) that drove home Jeff Mathis. Los Angeles maintained its lead in the AL West with its 12th win its last 17 road games. A 4-1 loss on Friday night had trimmed the division gap to only a half-game over the defending AL champion Rangers.

ANAHEIM - When you get to this stage of a series, nearly anything is possible. You try to detect patterns before realizing the whole deal could change on one pitch. As the teams headed back to New York for tonight's scheduled (rain is in the forecast) Game 6 of the American League Championship Series at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees lead, 3-2. New York won Game 1 after the Angels could not catch the ball. The Yankees won Game 4 decisively. The teams split extra-innings wins in Games 2 and 3. And then Los Angeles won Game 5 on Thursday, 7-6, as the Yankees left the bases loaded in the top of the ninth.

Los Angeles Angels catcher Jeff Mathis didn't start yesterday's American League Championship Series Game 3 against the New York Yankees, but he sure put together a finishing touch that has saved his team from near extinction. Mathis' two-out double to left field scored fellow hero Howie Kendrick as the Angles defeated the New Yankees, 5-4, in 11 innings, their second straight extra-inning marathon. Now trailing the best-of-seven series, two games to one, the Angels will send Scott Kazmir to the mound today against CC Sabathia in the second of three games at Angel Stadium.

ANAHEIM - There was the pinch-hitter (Jerry Hairston Jr.) who replaced the player (Brett Gardner) who had run for the designated hitter (Hideki Matsui) and eventually went into leftfield. Which meant there was no designated hitter and the Yankee pitchers would either have to bat or be lifted for a pinch-hitter. There was the Yankees first baseman (Mark Teixeira) following the Angels rightfielder (Bobby Abreu) to second base just in case he made a mistake running the bases. Which he did and was promptly thrown out when he found himself in no man's land between second and third.
