TORONTO, May 20 (UPI) -- R.A. Dickey had a solid outing and Edwin Encarnacion had a tie-breaking, three-run double Monday in the Toronto Blue Jays' 7-5 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Dickey (4-5) allowed four hits and walked four in eight innings. Tampa Bay managed three runs -- two earned -- in the first three innings but didn't score off Dickey again. He struck out five

Toronto reached Rays' starter Jake Odorizzi for three runs in the first two innings and, after Evan Longoria's two-run double of Dickey in the third tied the score, neither team managed a run until the seventh.

Josh Lueke (0-1) came in to pitch the seventh for Tampa Bay and walked Emilio Bonifacio. After a sacrifice, Munenori Kawasaki walked. Melky Cabrera lined out but Jose Bautista walked to load the bases.

Encarnacion then drove an 0-1 pitch into the left-field corner. The ball caromed off the wall and past left fielder Sam Fuld, allowing all three runners to score.

Toronto added an RBI triple from Kawasaki for a 7-3 lead in the eighth and a two-run, ninth-inning home run by Tampa Bay's Yunel Escobar completed the scoring.
