Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Jose Bautista's RBI double in the top of the
10th inning was the difference, as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Oakland
Athletics, 5-2, in the rubber match of a three-game set at O.co Coliseum.
Jose Reyes singled off the glove of Jesse Chavez (2-3) to start the frame. A
passed ball put Reyes on second before Bautista sliced a one-out cutter just
fair down the right-field line to plate Reyes. Two walks loaded the bases and
Colby Rasmus delivered a base hit through the right side off Jerry Blevins to
extend the lead to 5-2.
Casey Janssen (4-0) pitched a perfect ninth to earn the win for the Blue Jays,
winners in three of their last four contests.
Eric Sogard scored both runs for the A's, who have lost two in a row after
winning their previous four.
