TORONTO, July 3 (UPI) -- Adam Lind's three-run homer completed a fourth-inning rally Tuesday that carried the Toronto Blue Jays to a 6-3 victory over Kansas City.

After spotting the Royals a 3-0 lead, the Blue Jays started a comeback in the fourth off Vin Mazzaro (3-3).

Brett Lawrie and Colby Rasmus each singled to lead off the frame, with Lawrie moving to third on Jose Bautista's fly-out to deep center. Edwin Encarnacion followed with a run-scoring single, sending Rasmus to second.

One out later, Yunel Escobar singled and Rajai Davis drove in a pair with a hit to shallow right, tying the contest.

The next batter, Lind, crushed a Mazzaro offering off the facing of the second deck in right field, and the Blue Jays went on to even their four-game set with the Royals at one win apiece.

Brett Cecil (2-1) earned the decision, allowing three runs on five hits over five frames. The left-hander yielded one walk and struck out three.

Mazzaro was tagged for 13 hits over 5 1/3 frames, allowing six runs.

Jason Bourgeois provided a two-run triple for Kansas City.
