Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Alberto Callaspo rebounded from an error that
enabled Toronto to tie the game by sparking a four-run ninth inning that
enabled the Oakland Athletics to top the Blue Jays, 5-1, Monday afternoon at
Jose Reyes scored from third when Callaspo had a Jose Bautista bouncer go off
his glove in the eighth inning. Ryan Cook (5-2), who relieved Oakland starter
Dan Straily after he allowed consecutive one-out singles to Reyes and Maicer
Izturis, then got Edwin Encarnacion to line into an inning-ending double play.
The score wasn't knotted for long, as Oakland scored four runs off Casey
Janssen (4-1). The Toronto closer opted to intentionally walk Josh Reddick
after a pinch double by Brandon Moss put two men in scoring position with one
out. Callaspo then put the A's back in front with a two-run double to right
Stephen Vogt followed with an RBI single and Callaspo came home on Eric
Sogard's sacrifice fly.
