Blue Jays extend win streak to six

Jays host Rays, Royals this week

The Blue Jays have extended their winning streak to six games.

Leftie J.A. Happ pitched seven runless innings and Edwin Encarnacion to lift the Blue Birds to a 3-1 victory over the  Athletics in Toronto Sunday.

Toronto manager John Gibbons was ejected in the fifth inning after challenging a call.  After review, the call was upheld, Gibbons argued and was ejected.

The Jays have won 16 of their past 21 games, sitting in first in the American League East. Oakland, which leads the AL West, have dropped four straight.

The Blue Birds can extend their streak at home this week, hosting the Rays and Royals.

Toronto's longest win streak in franchise history is 11 games, a mark they tied during the 2013 season.

    Love the way these guys are playing this year- a huge improvement over last year.

    Dying to see the Blue Jays make the post-season- or finish second in their division.
