Blue Jays beat Rays to win seventh game in a row

Edwin Encarnacion belted his 15th homer of the season to help the Jays win 10-5

(The Canadian Press)

Edwin Encarnacion kept up his torrid pace this month by belting his 15th home run of the season as the Toronto Blue Jays extended their winning streak to seven games Monday night with a 10-5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Encarnacion had three of Toronto's 15 hits as the American League East division leaders maintained their two-game lead on the New York Yankees, who beat St. Louis 6-4 in 12 innings.

Dioner Navarro and Steve Tolleson hit back-to-back homers in the fourth inning for Toronto (30-22). Encarnacion hit a solo shot in the sixth inning for his 13th homer this month, setting a club record for most homers in the month of May.

Drew Hutchison (4-3) worked five innings for the victory in front of 15,616 fans on a warm, muggy evening at Rogers Centre. Canadian Erik Bedard (2-3) shouldered the loss as the Rays' four-game win streak came to an end.

The Blue Jays gave their young right-hander an early lead to work with by scoring a couple early runs after opening the game with five straight hits.

Jose Reyes reached on a bunt single and scored when Melky Cabrera doubled off the top of the wall in left field. Jose Bautista followed with a check-swing single that scored another run but the Jays slugger got caught in a rundown after rounding first base.

    It would seem that the Toronto Blue Jays are not intimidated by anyone or anything. Nor should they be. Nor should their fans be concerned about who they are to play next. The Jays are a very good team, with a lot of weapons. They are fun to watch.
