Edwin Encarnacion belted two home runs and drove in three to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to a 12-6 rout over the Philadelphia Phillies and sweep of the four-game set.

Juan Francisco went 3-for-3 with a solo homer and three runs scored and Adam Lind, fresh off the 15-day disabled list, had a two-run blast and three RBI for Toronto, which outscored the Phillies 31-11 in the series.

Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey (3-3) worked 6 1/3 innings and allowed three runs on seven hits, while fanning eight.

Ryan Howard hit a two-run bomb and Dominic Brown, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley each drove in a run for Philadelphia, which took the loss in the 20,000th game in franchise history.

Phils starter A.J. Burnett (2-2) was knocked around for seven runs -- six earned -- on nine hits through six frames. Luis Garcia, who was called up before the game, worked two innings and gave up five runs -- three earned -- on four hits.
