July 28, 2013 at 5:34 PM

TORONTO, July 28 (UPI) -- Colby Rasmus drove in Emilio Bonifacio with the game-winning run on a ninth-inning single Sunday, enabling the Toronto Blue Jays to edge Houston 2-1.

With the score tied 1-1 in the bottom of the ninth, Bonifacio delivered a leadoff double against Jose Cisnero (2-2).

Wesley Wright came in to pitch and struck out pinch-hitter Aaron Lind. But after Edwin Encarnacion was intentionally walked, Rasmus bounced a 3-2 pitch up the middle for a game-ending RBI.

Encarnacion drove in Toronto's other run and Melky Cabrera added three hits as the Blue Jays took three-of-four games from Houston.

Casey Janssen (3-0) earned the victory after starter Todd Redmond had struck out 10 Astros over six innings, allowing one run.

Houston's Jarred Cosart also tossed six innings of one-run ball, working around five walks and four hits.

Brett Wallace smacked a solo homer for the Astros.
