MLB: Toronto 2, Colorado 0

June 17, 2013 at 10:40 PM   |   Comments

TORONTO, June 17 (UPI) -- Maicer Izturis broke up a scoreless duel with a two-run single in the eighth inning Monday, boosting Toronto to a 2-0 interleague win over Colorado.

After Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa had allowed just one hit over seven scoreless frames, the Blue Jays finally dented the scoreboard against reliever Matt Belisle (4-4).

After Rajai Davis led off with a single and stole second, Colby Rasmus drew a walk and each runner moved up on J.P. Arencibia's groundout.

That brought up Izturis, who lofted a blooper into left field, sending home both runners as the Blue Jays stayed hot with a sixth straight win.

Brett Cecil (3-0) earned the decision in relief of starter Josh Johnson, who had blanked the Rockies on five hits over 7 1/3 innings, walking two and striking out 10.

Casey Janssen secured the win with his 15th save for Toronto, which took the opener of a three-game series.
