MLB: Toronto 3, Philadelphia 0

June 15, 2012 at 10:31 PM

TORONTO, June 15 (UPI) -- Casey Janssen finished off a combined shutout that required six pitchers Friday, sending the Toronto Blue Jays to a 3-0 victory over Philadelphia.

Toronto starter Drew Hutchison was taken out of the game due to elbow soreness after throwing only nine pitches.

The Blue Jays then sent a parade of pitchers to the mound and the win eventually went to Carlos Villanueva (2-0), the third of those hurlers, who worked four innings.

Janssen gave up a one-out single in the ninth before recording his sixth save.

Brett Lawrie doubled in a run in the third and the Blue Jays added two unearned scores in the fourth thanks to a throwing error by second baseman Mike Fontenot.

Vance Worley (3-3) gave up all three runs on five hits in seven innings to take the loss.

Philadelphia left 10 men on base and went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.
