TORONTO (AP) – Edwin Encarnacion hit an RBI single in the 10th inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-4 Sunday.
Yunel Escobar walked to begin the 10th against Fernando Rodney (2-5). Mark Teahen struck out and Jose Bautista walked before Hisanori Takahashi came on to strike out Adam Lind.
Encarnacion followed with a base hit up the alley in left-center, scoring Escobar with the winning run as Encarnacion’s teammates ran out and mobbed him at second base. Jon Rauch (5-3) pitched one inning for Toronto.
