MLB roundup: Blue Jays rout Yanks

Associated Press
The baseball roundup …
TORONTO — Edwin Encarnacion and Eric Thames had three hits and three RBIs each and Toronto used an eight-run first inning to beat New York 16-7 on Thursday night.
The Blue Jays set season highs in runs and hits (20) to win their fourth straight game.
Toronto lost slugger Jose Bautista to a twisted right ankle in the fourth inning. Bautista, who leads the majors with 31 home runs, limped off after an awkward slide into third base. He is day-to-day.
Andruw Jones hit two home runs but the Yankees couldn’t extend a nine-year streak of winning their first game following the All-Star break.
Left-hander Jo-Jo Reyes (5-7) allowed seven runs and 10 hits in 5 1-3 innings.
Indians 8, Orioles 4
BALTIMORE — Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana homered and Justin Masterson struck out eight in six innings as Cleveland extended Baltimore’s losing streak to eight games.
The victory moved the Indians into first place in the AL Central, percentage points ahead of idle Detroit. Cleveland lost three straight before the All-Star break to fall out of first for the first time since June 28.
Cabrera and Santana connected in a three-run first inning against Jeremy Guthrie (3-13). Cleveland is 4-0 against Baltimore this season, outscoring the Orioles 28-11.
Masterson (8-6) gave up four runs and eight hits while improving to 3-0 in his last three starts.
Twins 8, Royals 4
MINNEAPOLIS — Trevor Plouffe hit a big two-run homer and Delmon Young had three hits in his return to the lineup to lead the Minnesota Twins to an 8-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night.
Francisco Liriano (6-7) gave up three runs — one earned — on seven hits with four strikeouts in seven innings and Joe Mauer had two hits and two RBIs for the Twins.
National League
Marlins 6, Cubs 3
CHICAGO — Pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs delivered a two-run double against closer Carlos Marmol, and the Florida Marlins scored six times in the ninth inning to rally for a 6-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Thursday night that extended their season-high winning streak to six games.
The Marlins trailed 2-0 before sending 11 batters to the plate in their final at-bat while pulling out a dramatic victory.
Matt Garza threw seven scoreless innings for Chicago and Sean Marshall worked the eighth, but Marmol (2-3) unraveled while blowing save opportunity for the seventh time in 26 chances.
He walked Mike Stanton, Mike Cameron and John Buck, throwing just one strike in the process, to load the bases, and Dobbs doubled into the right-field corner.
