CLEVELAND, April 7 (UPI) -- Rajai Davis keyed a big 12th inning with a two-run double Saturday, sparking the Toronto Blue Jays to a 7-4 win over Cleveland.

Edwin Encarnacion doubled and Brett Lawrie singled off Tony Sipp (0-1) to lead off the 12th, and Davis followed by stroking a pitch into the right-centerfield gap, plating both runners.

Lawrie finished 3-for-5 with two RBI while Colby Rasmus and Kelly Johnson (two RBI) added run-scoring singles in the 12th as the Blue Jays improved to 2-0 to start the season.

Casey Janssen (1-0) was credited with the win after shutting down the Indians in the 10th and 11th innings.

Asdrubal Cabrera forced extra frames with a solo homer in the bottom of the ninth for the Tribe.

Cleveland starter Ubaldo Jimenez took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, when he yielded two runs on Lawrie's single. He walked three and fanned three.

Jason Kipnis added a two-run shot for the Indians.
