TORONTO, April 27 (UPI) -- Gustavo Chacin gave up two runs over seven-plus innings Wednesday night in leading Toronto to its second straight win over Tampa Bay, 8-2.

The Blue Jays' offense was paced by a rare two-triple night from Alex Rios, who also drove in two runs.

Reed Johnson added a two-run double in support of Chacin (4-1), who allowed seven hits and struck out three.

Scott Kazmir (0-2) suffered the loss, giving up four runs in six innings. It was Tampa Bay's third straight setback.

Rios tripled and scored in the second and then tripled in a run in the fifth to make it 4-1.
