Melky Cabrera, Maicer Izturis and Dioner Navarro had two hits apiece as Toronto outhit the Astros 10-6.
    
Morrow struck out the side in the first inning and his teammates gave him an early lead with a pair of runs in the bottom half of the frame.
    
Izturis got things started with a one-out single off Lucas Harrell (0-2) and he came around to score on a double by Jose Bautista. Cleanup hitter Edwin Encarnacion grounded out but Adam Lind followed with a single to centre that brought Bautista home.
    
Morrow retired the Astros in order the first time through the lineup. The hard-throwing right-hander had six strikeouts and three ground-ball outs over his first nine batters.
