Blue Jays extend winning streak to four games

He completed his jubilant home-run scamper around the bases and touched down at home plate into the awaiting arms of his elated teammates, but quickly broke free from the frenzy in order to protect his uniform.

Pillar hit a shot to left-center off of Mariners' closer Edwin Diaz to end the game.

"I feel like I've done it a million times", Estrada said. "So I didn't want it to rip completely. Not all of them were but when I was disciplined on getting it down, that was important for me". "His jersey is not even recognizable anymore".

When Travis lost the handle on his bat while swinging in the fifth, the bat sailed into the stands and struck a fan seated behind the third base dugout.

"For me, I've got to live on the edge", Vincent said. The three hits gave him a league-leading 47 hits.

"It's for real", manager John Gibbons said. After scoring 21 total runs in consecutive victories over Philadelphia this week, the Mariners have scored two runs in back-to-back defeats to Toronto. Smoak would then drop in his second single of the game, driving in two, to give the Blue Jays a 3-2 lead.

"I mean, yeah, but can we keep this about the game?" said the big righthander when asked about bleeding.

The Blue Jays outhit the Mariners 9-6.

It was Pillar's first career walkoff home run and is the first Toronto centre-fielder to hit a walkoff since Vernon Wells in July 2006.

First things first, for a Jays team that can not afford to look too far ahead, nor get over confident with any opponent, was Thursday's assignment. "He's having a tremendous year". He had an RBI single in the first, walked in the fourth, singled home two runs in the fifth, and connected off rookie Sam Gaviglio in the seventh. He was pulled after 78 pitches in favour of Dominic Leone.

Travis didn't move off third until Mariners catcher Carlos Ruiz threw to second to try to catch Maile. He also induced one ground-ball double play, his 12th of the season to tie Houston Astros LHP Dallas Keuchel for the American League lead with 12.

Biagini has not walked a batter in any of his past 13 outings, covering 21 1/3 innings.

It was Dyson's eighth career homer in 1,482 career at-bats.

Mariners: 2B Robinson Cano (right quadriceps) missed his fourth straight game. Toronto recalled Campos from Triple-A Buffalo.

Steve Pearce hit a three-run home run, Justin Smoak had a solo homer and finished with four RBIs, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Mariners 7-2 on Thursday night, snapping Seattle's win streak at four games.

The 30-year old is a big part of the Jays' success despite the team's shaky start, and the Blue Jays can be thankful they have been able to rely on him, unlike in previous seasons.

Gibbons said the team did not have a confidence problem.

Blue Jays: SS Troy Tulowitzki (right hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Class-A Dunedin on Saturday and is expected to be activated next Wednesday in Atlanta.

Coming up on Sunday from Rogers Centre, the Seattle Mariners and the Toronto Blue Jays will be wrapping up their weekend series. Reliever Dan Otero could not hold the reclaimed lead, surrendering an Ezequiel Carrera homer after Darwin Barney had hustled out a double to knot the game at seven.

As for the rotation, after needing just seven starters all of last season, the team has already seen nine different players make starts this year.

ST. LOUIS - Adam Wainwright fired seven shutout innings and St. Louis blanked Chicago for its eighth win in its last nine games and handed the Cubs their seventh loss in nine games.

Weber was 2-0 with a 0.85 ERA in six games at Tacoma, including five starts.
