TORONTO, April 29 (UPI) -- Edwin Encarnacion hit a tiebreaking homer and Henderson Alvarez turned in a strong start Sunday, boosting Toronto to a 7-2 win over Seattle.
Encarnacion's one-out blast to left field in the sixth inning off Jason Vargas (3-2) broke a 2-2 tie and was his third long ball in three games.
The Blue Jays went on to ice the contest with a five-run eighth, highlighted by Jeff Mathis' two-run clout.
Brett Lawrie also drove in a pair of runs as Toronto claimed the rubber match of a three-game set at Rogers Center.
Alvarez (1-2) logged his second major league win, holding the Mariners to one run on six hits in a six-inning start. He overcame three walks and struck out one in the triumph.
Vargas ended up yielding two runs on four hits over six frames.
