TORONTO -- This is audition time for J.A. Happ. The Toronto Blue Jays will be looking to improve the starting rotation ahead of next season and pitchers like Happ have a chance to show they belong as the disastrous 2013 campaign draws to a close. It did not go well for left-hander on Thursday night. Happ allowed four runs in 4 1-3 innings as the Los Angeles Angels beat the Blue Jays 4-3 to complete a three-game sweep. "Im just trying to prove to myself more than anything else," he said. "I hope to go out and finish strong." But twice he could not hold the lead on Thursday as the Blue Jays (67-79) lost despite four hits, including a home run, from Jose Reyes to go along with three hits from Moises Sierra. Kole Calhoun had two hits with a home run for the Angels (70-76) and right-hander Garrett Richards (7-6) pitched 6 2-3 innings to win his third straight decision. "He kept us in the game," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of Happ. "The thing that bit us the last two nights is two times (Wednesday) night and two times tonight we take the lead and dont get the shut down inning and give it right back. Thats what kills you. Thats a huge part of baseball. "Were not throwing out our top-notch lineup right now, were scratching for runs, so our starters have got to step up. Weve got to find a way to get a shut down inning and we havent done that the last two games." Happ (4-6) lamented the missed opportunity to do just that. "You want to give your team a chance to win," he said. "We got the lead and gave it right back. Youd like to have some shutdown innings when we do get the lead like that." Richards allowed three runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out four as he improved to 4-1 in his last five outings. "He got a little better as the game went on," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "I didnt think Garrett was as sharp tonight ... but he had some movement on his fastball, which got him through. Still, he pitched deep into the game and in the middle innings there was no doubt his stuff picked up." Ernesto Frieri pitched the ninth for his 33rd save despite allowing a two-out double to Reyes and a walk to Munenori Kawasaki. Happ needed 87 pitches in his short outing as he surrendered six hits and two walks while striking out six. The Blue Jays opened the scoring in the first inning after Reyes and Kawasaki led off with singles. Reyes took third when Brett Lawrie grounded into a double play and scored on Adam Linds double to right. The Angels tied it in the second when Happ walked Chris Iannetta with two outs before surrendering singles to Calhoun and Grant Green. "I think the assumption is that I made bad pitches," Happ said. "But as I go look back at it, I try to be honest as I can with myself, and the breaking ball to Green in the second inning I would like to have that pitch back. But (I was) really trying to be aggressive out there and they found a way. Im going to keep working and try to figure this thing out but its tough." The Angels took a 2-1 lead in the third on a throwing error by Toronto centre-fielder Anthony Gose. Erick Aybar singled with one out, and after Mike Trout walked, Trumbo flied out to Gose, who made an ill-advised throw to third to try to catch Aybar. The throw short-hopped Lawrie and Aybar scored as Trout took second on the play. The Blue Jays took a 3-2 lead in their third when Reyes hit his 10th homer of the season on the first pitch to tie the game. Kawasaki and Sierra then doubled to put Toronto into the lead. But Calhoun tied it with one out in the fourth on his seventh homer of the season. After one-out doubles by Aybar and Trout gave the Angels a 4-3 lead in the fifth, Neil Wagner replaced Happ. Michael Kohn replaced Richards after Reyes doubled with two out in the seventh. Kohn walked Kawasaki before striking out Lawrie. Notes: Attendance at Rogers Centre was 20,767. ...

As analysts we do the same thing, so here are some observations from week one. First there were two major upsets.

Got Jacks? Pulling off a comeback for the ages, feisty Stephen F. Austin became the latest No. 12 seed to pull off an upset, tying the game on Desmond Haymons did-that-just-happen four-point play with 3.6 seconds left, and then holding on in overtime for a 77-75 win over Virginia Commonwealth on Friday night. "Well, miracles truly do happen," SFA coach Brad Underwood said. Pretty regularly these days. Its been a wild ride in the NCAA tournament already, a two-day run filled with upsets, buzzer-beaters and millions of crumpled brackets across the country. SFAs victory marked the fifth overtime game during the round of 64, a tournament record. SFA didnt have the biggest upset of the opening two rounds -- Mercer probably gets the nod there with its win over Duke -- but the Lumberjacks certainly had the most jaw-dropping finish. Heres how it went down: The South Regions No. 5 seed, VCU (23-10) was firmly in control after its swarming defence flustered SFA during a big second-half run. The scrappy Lumberjacks (32-2) kept hanging around and clawed their way back in the closing seconds. Two missed free throws by VCUs Jordan Burgess with 10 seconds left gave SFA a chance. The Lumberjacks worked the ball around to the wing, where Haymon launched a 3-pointer and was fouled by JeQuan Lewis just before the ball fell through the basket. "I just tried to get out and contest it," Lewis said. "(I) jumped to the side a little bit and kind of fell into him. The ref called a foul." Haymon still had some work to do, though. The crowd still buzzing, VCU coach Shaka Smart called a timeout, trying to ice Haymon. The senior didnt seem to mind, returning to the court to calmly knock the free throw down. "I was struggling shooting the ball and I knew to get it going, I was going to have to continue to try to find it (his touch)," Haymon said. "I guess I found that groove with the last shot." The tension still wasnt over. Following a missed desperation heave at the end of regulation, Haymon put the Jacks ahead in overtime on a 3-pointer with 2 minutes left. VCUs turn at glory came after SFAs Thomas Walkup made 1 of 2 free throws put the Lumberjacks up 2 with 14 seconds left. The Rams got a good look on the final possession, working the ball around to Lewis for an openn 3-pointer on the wing.dddddddddddd His shot went long, the Lumberjacks grabbed the rebound, then stormed the floor after improbably extending the nations second-longest winning streak to 29 games. Jacob Parker scored 22 points and Haymon had 17 for SFA, which moves into Sundays third-round game against the Tulsa-UCLA winner. Treveon Graham had 19 points, Burgess 14 and Lewis finished with 13 for the disappointed Rams, the third No. 5 seed to lose this tournament. "Honestly, I thought we had it," Burgess said. "We had them on the ropes, but they came back and made some tough shots and important shots to win the game." Every year, the NCAA tournament has a feel-good team fans lock onto, like Florida Gulf Coast and Dunk City last year. SFA certainly had qualifications to be this years darling: A fun-loving group of players led by a long-haired shooter they call Sunshine, a frenetic style -- at least when it comes to half-court defence -- and the nations second-longest winning streak at 29. But for Lumberjacks to become the latest lovable lower seed, they had to get past VCU, a team that had been-there, done-that with the whole underdog thing. The Rams had a magical run of their own, reaching the 2011 Final Four, and have been consistent winners since, reaching the NCAA tournament four straight years. Oh, yeah, VCU has that defence, too. Its called Havoc and it has created more turnovers and steals than any other team in the country the past two seasons. SFA plays a little D of its own -- more of the half-court variety than the Rams -- so naturally tipped passes, floor burns and scraps for loose balls filled the arena when they met on the court for the first time. The Lumberjacks picked their way through the havoc with pinpoint passing on backdoor cuts and the interior, taking a six-point lead into halftime on Parkers last-second 3-pointer. VCU made the game more chaotic -- Havotic? -- with its pressure to start the second half and started working the ball inside, racing through an 11-0 run to go up 52-43. The Rams stayed in control most of the half, but missed four free throws in the final 32 seconds to give the Lumberjacks a shot at victory. "I like the way we battled the majority of the second half, but we just didnt finish the game," Smart said. "We kind of gave them a glimmer of hope." The Jacks ran with it, earning their spot in NCAA tournament history with one improbable shot.
