Scott Rolen put Toronto in front in the second with a two-run homer, one of just six hits the Blue Jays managed in the game. Lyle Overbay contributed a two-run single during Toronto's three-run third.

In his worst start of the season, Edinson Volquez (10-3) took the loss. He allowed seven runs on seven hits in 4 1/3.
