Despite Trout's quality outing and Albert Pujols' pair of dingers, the Blue Jays still came back behind a Steven Pearce grand-slammy.
Both bullpens also emptied from behind the outfield fences, but cooler heads prevailed, and players returned to their dugouts and bullpens.
A heated exchange between Marcus Stroman and Chicago's Tim Anderson was one of the few tense moments in a rather routine win for Toronto.
Subsequently, Kevan Smith hit his second long ball of the year, while Jose Abreu was already on the trails.
Smoak and Donaldson each connected for the second straight night and third time in five games. His seven innings pitched also matched a season high. He made just one appearance after that in the post-season, allowing two earned runs over a third of an inning in the Blue Jays' 5-3 win over Texas in the AL Division Series. Derek Holland will start game three and is 5-10 with a 5.42 ERA and 82 strikeouts this season.
Anderson, who was 0-for-4 two strikeouts against the Jays right-hander, walked toward the dugout looking over his shoulder at Stroman, wagging his bat. There were no ejections, and Anderson stayed in the game.
"In regards to where they're ranked, that certainly is a factor that I wouldn't dismiss but it's more about acquiring the talent you think can make an impact", Atkins said.
"We're in the business of making this organization better and if the deal doesn't present itself to do so then we're happy to keep Marco Estrada a Blue Jay", Atkins said. I don't understand why he would be running his mouth walking back to the dugout. "But I don't understand.it made zero sense to me".
'Miami Vice' reboot from Vin Diesel reportedly moving forward
It's likely that the show won't acknowledge the 2006 film adaptation of the series, which starred Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx . A rebooted Hawaii 5-0 has been a long-running hit for CBS while The CW has a rebooted version of Charmed in the works as well.
For his part, Anderson felt Stroman disrespected him.
He insisted he has no regrets, adding: "I stood up like I was supposed to and it happened".
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Toronto is the heavy favorite on the road, as the Blue Jays are getting odds of -200 to win, while the White Sox are listed with a money line of +170 to win at home.
The Chicago White Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays face off in the rubber match of their three game set on Wednesday. After the White Sox hit back-to-back singles in the ninth off Joe Biagini, manager John Gibbons brought in the closer Roberto Osuna, who struggled in his previous two games.
With Mike Trout on base in the first inning, Pujols sent the eighth pitch of the game into the left-field seats to give the Angels a 2-0 lead.
Blue Jays: C Miguel Montero, playing in his first game in Chicago since the Cubs traded him to Toronto on July 3, left the game with a right groin strain after fielding a grounder in the sixth inning.
