Kevin Pillar drove in pinch-runner Erik Kratz with the winning run to give the Toronto Blue Jays a 5-4 walkoff victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night at Rogers Centre. Pillar hit a flare to right field off Casey Fien that brought Kratz home from second base.

Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer and Jose Reyes added a solo shot for the Blue Jays, who overcame a blown save by closer Casey Janssen to take the opener of the three-game series.

Encarnacion's blast (his 20th of the season) gave Toronto (39-26) an early lead after Minnesota (29-33) started the game with back-to-back homers off Toronto starter R.A. Dickey.

The Blue Jays remained 5 1/2 games ahead of second-place Baltimore in the American League East division standings. The Orioles defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-0.

Minnesota scored a pair of quick runs before many fans had taken their seats on a glorious spring evening at Rogers Centre. Danny Santana hit his first career leadoff home run and Brian Dozier followed with a rainbow shot just inside the foul pole in left field.
