TORONTO — On the first day of the season that the Angels’ had their three best hitters in the lineup together, they provided a tidy little demonstration of what the team had missed.

Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and Justin Upton all homered in the Angels’ 10-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night, including Upton homering on the first pitch he saw this season.

Upton, who had missed the first 72 games while recovering from a sprained toe, led off the second inning with a homer against Edwin Jackson.

Upton’s homer and Ohtani’s three-run homer later in the inning were the bookends to a seven-run outburst that put the game away early.

Kole Calhoun homered just after Upton, giving the Angels a 2-1 lead.

Trout’s homer in the sixth inning was his 20th of the season, and seventh in his last 17 games. He became the eighth player to have eight 20-homer seasons by his age-27 season or younger.

Trout also doubled home two runs and singled in his first four trips. He had a shot to get the triple he needed for the cycle in the eighth, but he singled again, settling for a four-hit game. It’s the eighth time in his career that he’s been a triple shy of the cycle. He hit for the cycle once, in 2013.

Thanks to the big day for the hitters, Félix Peña could comfortably attack the strike zone as he worked deep into the game.

Taking the ball in the second after Luís García had allowed a Cavan Biggio homer in the first, Peña worked six innings and allowed four runs, but the outing was better than that.

He did not allow a hit for his first three innings and he didn’t give up a run through his first five innings. The Angels, who led 10-1 after six, let him keep going and he gave up two-run homers in the seventh and eighth innings.
