ANAHEIM, Calif. - After some tough outings, R.A. Dickeys knuckleball was back to doing the kinds of things that leave hitters walking back to the dugout shaking their heads. Dickey scattered four hits over seven innings for his first victory in over a month, Jose Reyes homered and drove in three runs and the Toronto Blue Jays ended a season-worst five-game skid Tuesday night with a 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels. "I just wanted to keep them guessing, as far as the speed goes," Dickey said. "And the movement was very good. When it was leaving my hand, I could see visible that it was moving in multiple directions." Dickey (7-8) struck out five and walked one after losing his previous four starts. The 2012 NL Cy young Award winner got back in the win column for the first time since beating the Tigers on June 4. "It was rewarding because Ive been going over some things in the bullpen," he said. "When you have a good game, you certainly want to rejoice over that and not get too far ahead of yourself." Dickey allowed only two Angels to reach base through the first six innings. He gave up a one-out single to Erick Aybar in the second and a walk to Chris Iannetta two batters later before retiring Collin Cowgill on a flyball to end the threat. "I thought they would be a pretty patient team, not having seen the knuckleball this year at all. And they were. So I wanted to have a knuckleball that I could depend on for strikes," the 39-year-old right-hander said. "I tried to throw as many first-pitch strikes as I could — at least one of the first two pitches. That 74-mile-an-hour knuckleball was kind of my strike knuckleball tonight." Cowgill was the first of 12 consecutive outs for Dickey before Mike Trout doubled to left field with two outs in the sixth and was thrown out at third by Melky Cabrera. The Blue Jays climbed within 2 1-2 games of the AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles, who were rained out at Washington. They also snapped a seven-game road losing streak and ended the Angels 11-game home winning streak, which fell one shy of the franchise record set in 1967. Tyler Skaggs (4-5) gave up three runs and 11 hits over 6 2-3 innings in his second start off the disabled list, after missing 23 games because of a right hamstring strain. The left-hander, pitching at Angel Stadium for the first time since May 20, is 0-4 with a 4.18 ERA in his last five starts overall. "I thought I threw the ball really well," said Skaggs, who beat the Blue Jays 5-3 on May 10 at Toronto. "When I faced them the last time, they were swinging early — and they kept swinging today. They swung the bats a lot better than Ive seen them in the past, and they put together good at-bats." Nolan Reimold, acquired Sunday off waivers from Baltimore, made his second start in right field as Jose Bautista remained at first base for the injured Edwin Encarnacion. Reimould doubled his first two times up. Reyes opened the scoring in the fifth with an RBI single that snapped Torontos 0-for-25 drought with runners in scoring position. Reyes increased the margin to 3-0, driving Skaggs 100th pitch into the left field bullpen with two outs in the seventh after a single by Munenori Kawasaki. Darin Martroianni added an RBI single in the eighth. NOTES: The Angels are going all out to help get RHP Garrett Richards the final spot on the AL All-Star squad through the internet fan balloting.

The grounds crew stenciled the hashtag on the infield dirt behind second base, behind the batters box, and on the back slope of the mound. ...

Backup centre Jermaine ONeal slipped along the baseline, spraining his right knee and straining his right groin. The announced sellout crowd of 19,596 hushed, and players and coaches huddled over ONeal before he was helped off the court. It was far more drama than the Warriors wanted against the NBAs worst team. Just as they have in the four previous games at home, though, they responded. Klay Thompson led the way with 25 points, and five others scored in double digits in an all-around effort that helped the Warriors hold off the Jazz 102-88 for their third straight victory -- though perhaps its costliest one. "Jermaine means a lot to this basketball team. He has a voice in the locker room, and we had to regroup," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. "Its never fun or easy looking at a teammate go down like that. So we pray that everythings fine with him. At the end of the day, we have to have guys that step up and be ready." ONeal will have additional tests on Sunday. The Warriors play at Utah on Monday night, when they hope to duplicate a performance in which they never trailed. Stephen Curry had 15 points and 11 assists, Andrew Bogut added 12 points and 11 rebounds, David Lee scored 13 and Harrison Barnes chipped in 11 points as the Warriors went ahead by 19 late in the second quarter. The Jazz came back within seven in the third quarter before Golden State pulled away by 20 late in the fourth. "Its beautiful to watch when we play like that," Thompson said. Derrick Favours finished with 17 points and seven rebounds, and Gordon Hayward and Marvin Williams each scored 14 for the Jazz, who fell to an NBA-worst 1-10. "When you get down, especially to a team like Golden State that can score very quickly, you put yourself in a tough position," said Williams, who wore a facemask to protect his broken nose before tossing it aside in the second quarter. Golden State (7-3) has taken advantage of a favourable home schedule so far this season. The Warriors are 5-0 at Oracle Arena, with all five opponents playing the night before. Utah lost 91-82 to San Antonio on Friday night in Salt Lake City. Jackson cautioned his team not to take the Jazz lightly. With the same formula of swarming defence and sharp shooting that has carried the club since its surprisingg playoff run last spring, Golden State seemed to quickly turn the contest into a predictable rout.dddddddddddd The Warriors held leads of 27-13 after the first quarter and 51-34 at halftime, with Thompson and Iguodala each making three 3-pointers before the break. The defensive intensity stalled in the third quarter, though, and the nothing-to-lose Jazz capitalized. Haywards 3-pointer brought Utah within 61-54 with 5:37 remaining in the third. The teams traded baskets before Golden State slowly reasserted itself. The Warriors outshot the Jazz 51.2 to 45.5 per cent and outrebounded them 42 to 32 in a game that had far more drama than they preferred. "So far weve quote-unquote beaten the teams that were supposed to beat and weve won games at home," Lee said. "Now we need to go on the road and do the same thing against a Jazz team thats going to come back and want revenge." The only damper during the home stand was ONeals injury. ONeal, who has battled numerous knee injuries -- the most serious to his left knee -- during his 17-year NBA career, was unable to put pressure on his right leg while being helped to the locker room by teammates Draymond Green and Ognjen Kuzmic. Kuzmic, a 7-foot rookie from Bosnia and Herzegovina, will likely be counted on more if ONeal misses any significant time. The Warriors also could play power forwards Marreese Speights and Lee at centre in a smaller lineup. The injury is compounded because fellow backup centre Festus Ezeli, who appeared in 78 games (41 starts) as a rookie last season, is working back from right knee surgery. He will likely be out until at least February. For the Jazz, they could at least take solace in pushing a Western Conference contender for the second straight night -- a small sign of progress in a season that has had little so far. Utah lost its first eight games this season before beating New Orleans this week. "The guys are still showing fight in them and were executing at times, but we have to put together longer stretches of it, especially on the road," Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. "This is a good team on their floor and they shoot the ball very well."
