TORONTO -- Brendan Donnelly was stuck in a celebration he wanted no part of.

Donnelly's wild pitch with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 10th inning allowed Toronto to score the winning run and the Blue Jays beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Donnelly bounced his first pitch to Corey Koskie, allowing Russ Adams to slide in for the winning run. Donnelly -- at home plate to take catcher Bengie Molina's throw -- couldn't get away from the celebrating Toronto players.

"They were hugging and celebrating, and they had my jersey. I couldn't get away," Donnelly said. "I didn't want to celebrate with them."

Koskie chuckled when he thought of Donnelly.

"He got his hand tangled up in there. He was trying to get his hand loose," Koskie said. "He couldn't get out of there. Stuff like that is exciting baseball. That's what makes fans come to ballgames."

Adams led off Toronto's 10th with a single off Donnelly (6-3) and Frank Catalanotto advanced him with a sacrifice bunt. Donnelly intentionally walked Vernon Wells to face rookie Aaron Hill, who ended an 0-for-18 slump with an infield single to third that loaded the bases.

Donnelly followed with his wild pitch.

"It was a slider down in the dirt," Donnelly said. "It just kicked off far enough where there was no play."

Miguel Batista (5-3) pitched two innings for the victory as the Angels lost their third in a row.

Koskie, Toronto's third baseman, made a spectacular catch in foul territory in the top of the 10th. Chone Figgins hit a pop up near the stands in left and Koskie tracked it down before crashing to the turf.

"I saw it go up and I ran and threw my glove out there, and it landed in my glove," Koskie said.

Darin Erstad followed with a single and Batista intentionally walked Vladimir Guerrero, who had homered, to face Garret Anderson, who flied out. Steve Finley followed with an infield single to load the bases, but Batista escaped the jam when he induced Molina to hit a comebacker.

Guerrero should have been the third out of the first inning, but first baseman Eric Hinske dropped a pop up in foul territory for an error, prolonging the at-bat. Five pitches later Guerrero homered over the wall in left center.

Toronto's Gregg Zaun walked in the second, advanced to third on Hinske's single and scored on Alex Rios' single.

Erstad had an RBI single in the third that gave Los Angeles a 2-1 lead.

Wells tripled in the fifth and scored on Koskie's RBI single, tying it at 2-2.

Toronto starter Josh Towers allowed two runs -- one earned -- and six hits in 6 2/3 innings.

Los Angeles starter Bartolo Colon gave up two runs and seven hits in seven innings.


Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said baseball should consider having pitchers wear protective head gear, a day after Boston's Matt Clement was hit in the side of the head by a line drive. "It's a part of the game that might have to be addressed," Scioscia said. ... Toronto LHP Ted Lilly wasn't able to throw on the side Wednesday and manager John Gibbons said he could be placed on the 15-day disabled list this week. Lilly was originally expected to miss just one start with biceps tendinitis. He left Sunday's start against Kansas City after four innings after experiencing discomfort.
