TORONTO -- The series opener between the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles was a pitchers duel for the first five innings. It turned into a power game after that and Torontos boppers were up to the task. Edwin Encarnacion, Brett Lawrie and Melky Cabrera belted three-run homers as the Blue Jays dumped the Orioles 9-3 on Tuesday night at Rogers Centre. Encarnacion got things started in the sixth inning, Lawrie would later give the Jays the lead and Cabrera added some insurance as Toronto improved to 11-9 on the season. "Home runs come in handy," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "Home runs do win. We had the three big ones." Nelson Cruz hit a three-run shot for Baltimore (9-10) in the top half of the sixth inning before Encarnacion ended his 25-game home run drought to pull Toronto even. Lawrie, from Langley, B.C., cracked the tie in the eighth inning with a blast off Evan Meek (0-1) to help make a winner of reliever Steve Delabar (2-0). Cabrera, who has hit safely in 19 of 20 games this season, went deep off Josh Stinson later in the frame. Juan Francisco and Josh Thole chipped in with two hits apiece for the Blue Jays, who outhit the Orioles 9-8. Toronto starter R.A. Dickey and Baltimores Miguel Gonzalez were both in form early on. Dickey was the first to hiccup in the sixth inning after Baltimore got a rally started by taking advantage of some sloppy defence. Steve Lombardozzi hit a flare to shallow left field that dropped in between Cabrera and Jose Reyes. Both Blue Jays seemed to think the other had a read on the ball but neither did. Lombardozzi reached second on the play and Nick Markakis followed with a walk. Cruz then stepped into a 1-1 fastball for his fourth homer of the season. Dickey recorded the next two outs but then loaded the bases by walking Steve Clevenger, hitting Delmon Young with a pitch and walking Ryan Flaherty. A Jonathan Schoop strikeout kept the damage to just three runs. A Baltimore error helped the Blue Jays rally in the bottom half. Cabrera reached when Lombardozzi flubbed a grounder and Jose Bautista singled to set the stage for Encarnacion, who launched a blast into the first row of standing-room only seats above the first deck in centre field. "Hes a home run hitter," Gibbons said. "To get that first one, Im sure hes breathing a little bit easier." It was the fourth-longest home run drought of Encarnacions career. Gonzalez, who struck out a season-high seven batters, lasted 5 2/3 innings as Baltimore fell to 5-6 on the road this season. "With Encarnacion you cant double up, youve got to keep the ball down and make better pitches," Gonzalez said. The Baltimore starter allowed four hits and two earned runs while walking a pair. "Miguel was very close there," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "If we do a couple of things differently he probably pitches six or seven innings. He had good stuff obviously. He gave us a good chance to win. I cant fault his effort." Dickey struggled again when he came back out for the seventh inning but got a big assist from the Toronto bullpen. With runners on second and third and nobody out, Neil Wagner came on in relief and got Cruz to ground out. Southpaw Brett Cecil relieved Wagner and walked Chris Davis to load the bases. Cecil got cleanup hitter Adam Jones to wave at three straight pitches before striking out Clevenger to snuff the threat. "Thats the ballgame right there," Gibbons said. "But our bullpen is good. Weve had a couple hiccups in the past week but our bullpen is as good as anybodys." Delabar came on for the eighth inning and put a runner on with a one-out walk. Jonathan Diaz and Reyes then combined for a nice 4-6-3 double play to retire the side. Notes: Dickey, who tied a season high with six strikeouts, was pulled after facing two batters in the seventh inning. He allowed six hits, three earned runs and three walks. It was his second quality start of the season. ... The crowd let out a cheer when the halftime score of the Toronto Raptors NBA playoff game was shown on the big screen. The Raptors led Brooklyn 45-39 after two quarters and went on to beat the Nets 100-95. ... Cabrera has five homers on the season, one more than Lawrie. ... Announced attendance was 14,866 and the game took two hours 54 minutes to play. ... Dustin McGowan (1-1) is scheduled to start the second game of the three-game series on Wednesday. The Orioles will counter with fellow right-hander Chris Tillman (1-0). ... The Blue Jays will close out the homestand with a weekend series against the Boston Red Sox. ... It was the fifth game of a seven-game road trip for the Orioles, who were coming off a four-game series split in Boston. ... Bautista has reached base safely in all 20 games this season. Its the teams longest season-opening streak of its kind since Vernon Wells reached base safely in 29 straight games to open the 2006 campaign. ... Cecil has yet to allow an earned run this season. He has 15 strikeouts over 8 2/3 innings. Chris Ivory Jaguars Jersey. Dr. James Andrews is to operate next week on the 24-year-old pitcher, who made the AL All-Star team last year.

Ramirez is still hitting behind Puig, only now they are in the third and fourth spots, and the change is starting to generate positive results for manager Don Mattingly.PARK CITY, Utah - Olympic champion Kaillie Humphries of Canada finished sixth and Olympic silver medallist Elana Meyers Taylor of the U.S. was seventh Saturday, becoming the first women to drive against men in an international four-man bobsled competition.Nick Cunningham of the U.S. drove to the win in the North American Cup race, one spot ahead of 2010 Olympic champion and fellow American Steven Holcomb. Meyers Taylors two-run time was about a second behind Cunningham.Still, the historical significance of the day was not lost on the two-time Olympic medallist .Its hard to realize the impact this has on the history of the sport right now, Meyers Taylor said. Its hard to take it all in, because at the end of the day Im a competitor and I always want to perform better. Im a little disappointed with todays finish, but at the same time I know that the importance of this moment will hit me later. Its pretty cool.Bobsleds international governing body ruled this year that four-man sliding will be considered gender neutral going forward, meaning women will have a chance to compete in four-man against males. Its likely that Humphries, from Calgary, and Meyers Taylor — generally considered the two strongest female piilots in the sport — will be the lone women on the World Cup circuit this winter.ddddddddddddAlthough both are qualified for their respective national teams, they still need to satisfy experience requirements before getting cleared to race on the World Cup circuit. To do so before the season opens next month at Lake Placid, New York, Humphries and Meyers Taylor are planning to race in Canada and France to reach the required number of lower-tier races.Humphries celebrated the accomplishment Saturday by showing up at the 2002 Olympic track with a shirt that bore the words Boys Club.Its pretty awesome to share this moment with Kaillie and to be doing this together, Meyers Taylor said. Were able to relate as we go through this whole new experience for us. Shes my friend and someone I can confide in, and weve been working together to progress this sport in any way we can.Meyers Taylor also competed in the womens events at the North American Cup stop in Park City, teaming with brakeman Cherrelle Garrett to top American Jamie Greubel Poser and Michelle Howe in the first race with Humphries and Melissa Lotholz, taking third.In the second womens race, Greubel Poser and Lauren Gibbs won convincingly.
