MLB: Toronto 6, Minnesota 2

MINNEAPOLIS, May 10 (UPI) -- Brett Lawrie and Edwin Encarnacion both had two RBI Thursday and Yunel Escobar scored three times in carrying the Toronto Blue Jays past Minnesota 6-2.

Escobar went 4-for-4 in helping the Blue Jays to their second straight win. Minnesota has lost five out of six and remained stuck on just eight victories for the season -- three fewer than any other team.

Encarnacion's second RBI came on an infield single in the fourth that also delivered Escobar.

Henderson Alvarez (3-2) earned the win by giving up two runs on seven hits over seven innings.

Jason Marquis (2-2) surrendered all the Minnesota runs in four frames.
