Lind hits 2 homers, Blue Jays beat Angels 7-5

Adam Lind hit two home runs, Yunel Escobar has a tiebreaking double in the seventh inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Los Angeles Angels 7-5 on Friday night.
Promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas last Monday after spending more than a month in the minors, Lind hit a three-run homer off Ervin Santana in the third inning, then added a solo drive to left off Hisanori Takahashi in the seventh. His fourth and fifth homers of the season ended a drought dating to May 9 at Oakland, giving Lind his first multihomer game this season and the eighth of his career.
Escobar went 3 for 4 with two RBIs as the Blue Jays snapped a three-game losing streak and halted Los Angeles' winning streak at four games.
Francisco Cordero (3-4) worked 2-3 of an inning for the win and Casey Janssen finished for his ninth save in 10 chances.
