MLB: Toronto 2, Pittsburgh 1

June 29, 2011 at 10:28 PM   |   Comments

TORONTO, June 29 (UPI) -- Brandon Morrow struck out 10 and Yunel Escobar's seventh-inning double drove in the game-winner Wednesday, giving Toronto a 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh.

Morrow (4-4) lasted seven innings, giving up four hits and a run to help snap a two-game Toronto skid.

Jason Frasor and Frank Francisco both worked an inning of relief. Each one walked a batter, but neither runner advanced past first base and Francisco earned his ninth save.

Ronny Cedeno singled in the Pittsburgh run in the fifth, but Matt Diaz was thrown out at third on the play and Eric Fryer then became one of Morrow's strikeout victims to prevent further damage.

Eric Thames tied it with a leadoff homer in the sixth and the Blue Jays took the lead one inning later on back-to-back, one-out doubles by Rajai Davis and Escobar.

Paul Maholm (4-9) allowed both runs on nine hits over seven innings to take the loss.
