ARLINGTON, Texas, June 14 (UPI) -- Colby Rasmus ignited the Toronto offense with a three-run homer Friday and Mark Buehrle struck out seven to bring the Blue Jays an 8-0 blanking of Texas.

Buehrle (3-4) allowed four hits in a seven-inning performance to extend the Rangers' season-long losing streak to four games.

Texas has managed only five runs in their four consecutive defeats and the Rangers have not had a starting pitcher win a game in the month of June.

Rasmus hit his homer in Toronto's four-run fourth and J.P. Arencibia tacked on a solo homer. It was the Blue Jays' third straight win.

Justin Grimm (5-5) suffered the loss, allowing seven runs on 10 hits in 7 2/3.

Toronto has won three road games in a row for the first time this season.
