Buehrle gets ninth win, Blue Jays beat Rays 9-6 and extend streak to 8

TORONTO -- Another blast by Edwin Encarnacion helped make Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle the first nine-game winner in the majors this season.

Buehrle won his season-best fifth straight decision, while Encarnacion and Adam Lind hit back-to-back home runs as Toronto extended its winning streak to eight games, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 9-6 on Tuesday night.

Buehrle said he's grateful to have support from Encarnacion, who connected for the 14th time in May, matching Jose Bautista's team record for home runs in a month. Bautista hit 14 homers in June 2012.

Buehrle (9-1) allowed four runs, three earned, and eight hits in 6 2-3 innings. The left-hander walked one and struck out three.

The AL-Central leading Tigers ended a three-game losing streak with a 6-5 win over the Athletics, the Angles beat the Mariners 6-4 at Seattle, the Twins edged the Rangers 4-3 and the Astros had a 3-0 win over the Royals, giving Houston its first four-game winning streak since September.

In an interleague match up at St. Louis, Lance Lynn threw a five-hit shutout in his first career complete game and the St. Louis Cardinals got home runs from Allen Craig and Matt Holliday in a 6-0 victory over the Yankees.

The Dodgers beat the Reds 6-3, with Andre Ethier driving in Los Angeles' first four runs with a homer and a bases-loaded triple, and Zack Greinke equaling a season high with 11 strikeouts.

At Milwaukee, Pitcher Yovani Gallardo delivered a pinch-hit double that drove home the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning to give the Brewers a 7-6 victory over the Orioles.

Elsewhere, Tim Hudson turned in another vintage performance to start this season, tossing seven scoreless innings to lead San Francisco 4-0 past Chicago, and Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a two-run single during a four-run rally in the seventh inning to help Boston beat Atlanta 6-3 in the latest comeback following its longest losing streak in 20 years.

The Red Sox ended their 10-game losing streak on Monday, overcoming a five-run deficit to top Atlanta 8-6.

The New York Mets beat the Pirates 4-2, the Padres had a 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks, with Tommy Medica hitting a tiebreaking solo homer in the eighth inning, and the Rockies beat the Phillies 6-2.
