TORONTO (AP) -Gregg Zaun homered and drove in four runs, and Toronto tied a franchise record with an 11-run sixth inning in a 13-1 victory over Minnesota on Wednesday that completed a three-game sweep.
Toronto has won a season-high five straight while Minnesota has lost four in a row, matching a season worst.
Zaun singled and scored in the fifth, then added an RBI double and a three-run homer in the sixth. He finished 3-for-4 and came within a triple of the cycle.
Jesse Litsch (3-4) allowed one run and five hits over seven innings. Toronto starters are 5-0 with a 1.25 ERA in the past five games.
John McDonald followed Zaun's double in the sixth with a two-run triple that chased Carlos Silva (8-11). The Blue Jays sent 14 men to the plate in the inning.
Silva allowed six runs and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings.
Angels 7, Athletics 6
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Maicer Izturis' RBI single in the bottom of the ninth gave Los Angeles the win after Francisco Rodriguez blew a three-run lead in the top half of the inning.
Rodriguez (4-2) took the ball with a 6-3 lead and failed to preserve the win for John Lackey, his third blown save in 28 chances.
Casey Kotchman singled with one out in the bottom of the ninth, advanced on a grounder and a passed ball and scored on Izturis' hit off Joe Kennedy (3-9), who fell to 1-10 lifetime against the Angels. His only win against them came on Monday night, when he pitched two scoreless innings.
After Mike Piazza's homer put Oakland up 3-2, the Angels scored three runs in the fifth.
