TORONTO — Billy McKinney hit a two-run homer off Ty Buttrey in the 10th inning, costing the Angels a 7-5 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night.

The Angels had been going for the four-game sweep.

The Angels had escaped a jam in the eighth, when the Blue Jays loaded the bases with one out on two walks and an infield hit, with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. coming to the plate.

Cam Bedrosian got him to ground into a double play, with second baseman Tommy La Stella making a nice turn despite getting taken out on a hard slide by Eric Sogard.

Hansel Robles then struck out the side in the ninth, but Buttrey couldn’t even get an out in the 10th. He gave up a single to Randal Grichuk and then a homer to McKinney.

José Suarez had a rough game in his fourth big league start, allowing five runs in five innings.

It could have been worse, though. Suarez gave up three runs in the first, with a Teoscar Hernandez two-run homer among the four hits he allowed. Each of the Angels’ two long relievers – Taylor Cole and Noé Ramírez – had thrown at least 25 pitches the night before, the Angels would have been in trouble if Suarez had gotten knocked out in the second or third inning.

However, he righted himself and gave up just two solo homers over the next four innings, getting through the fifth. At the time he left, the Angels trailed 5-3.

Luís Rengifo, who could be headed back to Triple-A as soon as Andrelton Simmons comes off the injured list, was the Angels’ most productive hitter as they battled back.

He hit a two-run homer in the second and led off the fifth with a single, eventually scoring. He also had an RBI single in the sixth, cutting the deficit to 5-4.

The Angels had a couple of opportunities to tie the score in the fifth and sixth. Dustin Garneau was at third with one out in the fifth, but he tried to come home on a ball that didn’t get far from catcher Luke Maile, and he was out by five feet. In the sixth the Angels had the bases loaded with no outs after pulling within one, but Garneau struck out, pinch-hitter Shohei Ohtani grounded into a force at the plate, and David Fletcher hit a flyout.

Finally, the Angels tied it in the seventh. Mike Trout doubled, stole third and scored on an Albert Pujols sacrifice fly.
