OAKLAND -- The Blue Jays got home runs from Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Bautista and Russell Martin, and Josh Donaldson chimed in with an RBI double to help sink his former A's team, 7-1, in the opener of a three-game series at the Coliseum on Tuesday night.
Lefty Mark Buehrle held the A's to one run over seven innings for his 11th win, scattering eight hits -- including Jake Smolinski's sixth-inning RBI triple -- and walking none with three strikeouts. The veteran has completed seven innings in seven consecutive starts and 11 of his last 12 and has allowed two earned runs or fewer in nine straight.
