Final Score: Toronto 7, Seattle 0
Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Edwin Encarnacion hit a grand slam, Brandon
Morrow tossed six scoreless innings and the Toronto Blue Jays easily handled
the Seattle Mariners, 7-0, in the middle contest of a three-game set Saturday.
Encarnacion finished 2-for-3 with five runs batted in, while Jose Bautista and
Adam Lind each drove in a run for Toronto, which snapped a four-game losing
Morrow (2-1) struck out nine while allowing five hits and no walks to record
the win as three Blue Jay relievers combined for just one hit and one walk
over three frames to complete the shutout.
"I thought Brandon (Morrow) came out and set the tone," Toronto manager
John Farrell said. "He was powerful, he threw a lot of strikes."
Ichiro Suzuki and Kyle Seager each had two hits for Seattle, which saw a four-
game winning streak end. Kevin Millwood (0-2) surrendered three runs -- one
earned -- on seven hits in seven innings.
Toronto opened the scoring in the home third.
After one-out singles by Yunel Escobar and Kelly Johnson, Bautista plated
Escobar with a fielder's choice. Bautista was safe due to an error on Seager,
and Johnson went to second on the play before scoring when Lind bounced a
first-pitch fastball over the wall in the opposite field for an RBI ground-
Encarnacion capped the rally with a sacrifice fly, scoing Bausista, though the
inning ended on Lind's attempt to move to third.
That was all the offense until the bottom of the eighth when, after a single,
a double and an intentional walk loaded the bases, Encarnacion reached out and
muscled reliever Hisashi Iwakuma's first offering over the opposite-field wall
to secure the win.
Toronto's Brett Lawrie has an eight-game hitting streak...Seattle is in the
midst of a 10-game road swing...The Mariners had just six hits, and left eight
in scoring position...The probables for Sunday's finale are Jason Vargas (3-1)
for Seattle against Henderson Alvarez (0-2).
