PHILADELPHIA, May 17 (UPI) -- Rod Barajas clubbed two homers and knocked in five runs Saturday to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to a 6-3 win at Philadelphia.

The veteran catcher, a former Phillie, started the night with a grand slam in the top of the second inning, his second homer this season, and then added a solo shot in the ninth.

A run scored on Ryan Howard's ninth-inning fielding error and Scott Rolen had two hits for the Blue Jays, who recovered from a 10-3 beating Friday.

Winner A.J. Burnett (4-4) was charged with two earned runs and only four hits in 6 1/3 innings with three walks and eight strikeouts.

Closer B.J. Ryan earned his eighth save.

Philadelphia's Jimmy Rollins had three hits, one a two-run double in the seventh. Greg Dobbs had two hits, one an RBI double in the fourth for the Phillies, who have lost four of seven.

The losing pitcher was starter Adam Eaton (0-2).
