Recap: Toronto vs. Atlanta

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Edwin Encarnacion belted a three-run homer and finished with five RBI, leading the Toronto Blue Jays in a 9-3 rout of the Atlanta Braves at Rogers Centre.

Colby Rasmus and J.P. Arencibia each hit two-run homers for the Blue Jays, who have won nine of their last 14 games.

Mark Buehrle (2-3) held the Braves to a run on five hits over six solid innings. The veteran left-hander walked two and struck out six, none bigger than Dan Uggla staring at strike three with two runners in scoring position to end the sixth.

Toronto only led 4-1 at the time, but blasts by Arencibia and Encarnacion blew the game open.

Evan Gattis launched a two-run homer in the eighth for Atlanta, which has lost two straight on the heels of an eight-game winning streak. Tim Hudson (4-4) was tagged for six runs on eight hits and two walks in six frames.

"It was just not a very good night," Hudson admitted. "A night where I was battling a little bit with my delivery. My pitches weren't very crisp."

These teams will play again in Toronto before traveling to Atlanta to close out this home-and-home interleague set on Wednesday and Thursday.

Rasmus took Hudson deep to right field in the second, and Encarnacion plated a pair with a single in the next inning.

The Braves got on the board in the fifth when Andrelton Simmons blooped a two- out single to center to score Chris Johnson, who had doubled.

After Buehrle pitched out of the aforementioned jam, Arencibia followed a leadoff walk in the home sixth with a drive over the wall in left-center.

Cory Rasmus, the younger brother of Colby, gave up a ground-rule double to Melky Cabrera to begin the seventh and then walked Jose Bautista before serving up Encarnacion's home run to left. Colby Rasmus doubled off his sibling later in the inning.

"It was still awesome," Cory Rasmus said about pitching to his brother. "Obviously the outcome was the most important part, but it was a lot of fun."
