0 0

Steve Tolleson hit his first home run of the season and starter Liam Hendriks was impressive in his Blue Jays debut as Toronto defeated the Oakland Athletics 3-2 on Friday night at Rogers
Centre.

Casey Janssen worked the ninth inning for his sixth save as Toronto (27-22) extended its winning streak to four games.

It was the opener of a 10-game homestand for the American League East division leaders.

Hendriks, who was called up from triple-A Buffalo earlier in the day, allowed three hits and one earned run over 5 2/3 innings. Scott
Kazmir (5-2) shouldered the loss for Oakland (30-18).

Toronto opened the scoring in the second inning.

Edwin Encarnacion reached on an infield single but was forced out when Brett Lawrie of Langley, B.C., hit into a fielder's choice.

Dioner Navarro lined out before Tolleson went deep to give the Blue Jays a 2-0 lead.

The Blue Jays took advantage of a Kazmir throwing error to tack on another run in the third inning
