Pearce, Smoak hit homers as Blue Jays beat Mariners 7-2

I felt like if I went out there thinking that, I was already defeated. "So right there I was really just trying to find a way to get on base". Coghlan was hit in the hand by a pitch in the sixth. "I left a slider in the middle of the plate".

CLEVELAND - Cleveland belted four home runs - two by Jason Kipnis - and Trevor Bauer pitched six strong innings at Progressive Field to halt a three-game losing streak and end Minnesota's four-game winning streak.

Bautista broke a 2-all tie with a drive into the center-field party deck off Nick Vincent (1-1) in the seventh.

Berrios (1-0), called up from Triple-A Rochester on Friday, gave up one run and two hits in 72/3 innings. It was his fourth home run of the season. "We made a couple of mistakes".

He avoided the subsequent jersey-ripping - except for one button torn off - but got a keg of Gatorade over the head, courtesy Darwin Barney.

"He's not missing the balls he's been fouling off", manager John Gibbons said. "You can't forget his catch earlier in the game (in the fourth on Danny Valencia), too".

In his first start with the Mariners, Bergman pitched five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits with a walk and a strikeout. He struck out four. But on Sunday, he didn't even think about the finger. Martin said the injury, which doesn't cause pain but limits mobility and strength, may be an aggravation of a similar issue he dealt with in Spring Training.

"Things are starting to go our way", Gibbons said after a win before 32,865 under the Rogers Centre roof.

"Even if they would have told me: "Hey, what you're doing isn't going to work at the major leagues" I would have laughed at them and told them they were insane". Martinez allowed three runs, five hits and four walks over 62/3 innings, striking out seven.

Up 2-1 going into the sixth, Servais turned the game over to his quintet of relievers that he likes to use with leads in close games. Sam Gaviglio allowed Smoak's sixth homer of the season in the seventh. They scored six runs over the four games in Toronto after scoring 21 in their previous two games.

Toronto took the lead by scoring five times in a two-out rally in the fifth. Carlos Ruiz was called out at first on a slow roller to third, but the call was overturned following video review. The injury isn't as serious as originally feared, but is dragging on longer than hoped for and there is still no timetable for the veteran's return. Grilli gave up an infield single to Jean Segura, Gamel flew out to centre and then Nelson Cruz smacked a single to right. Ruiz scored and Segura took third on Bautista's throwing error. Ryan Tepera (3-1) pitched 2 1/3 ideal innings for the win as the Blue Jays completed a four-game sweep. Righty Mike Bolsinger (0-1) will make his second start of the season on Monday against the Atlanta Braves in place of injured starter Franciscio Liriano. RHP Dan Altavilla was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma. He entered the game with three RBI in 58 at-bats since coming off the disabled list on April 21.

Seattle is also without second baseman Robinson Cano, who didn't start Saturday for the third straight game. Meanwhile, the Jays are 4-0 in their last four games, are 8-2 in their last 10 games against American League West competition, and are 4-1 in their last five games following a win.

Meanwhile, the Blue Jays are 6-2 in their last eight Sunday games, and 0-6 in their last six games versus a left-handed starter.
