TORONTO -- Toronto starter Mark Buehrle cant recall making a season-opening run quite like the one hes currently enjoying with the Blue Jays. The 35-year-old left-hander was in top form again Wednesday night, throwing seven innings of three-hit ball in a 10-0 rout of the Philadelphia Phillies at Rogers Centre. Buehrle (6-1) leads the American League with six victories and his earned-run average dropped to an impressive 1.91. "I dont want to ask too many questions, I dont want to try to figure out whats going on," he said. "Im just going to kind of roll with it and keep it as long as I can." Toronto exploded for nine runs in the seventh inning. Erik Kratz, Juan Francisco and Edwin Encarnacion all homered in the frame as the Blue Jays (17-17) returned to the .500 mark. Sergio Santos and Chad Jenkins completed the three-hit shutout as Toronto extended its winning streak to four games. Philadelphia starter Cliff Lee (3-3) was in form until the seventh, ending his streak of six straight quality starts. "Some balls ended up over the plate and they didnt miss them," said Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg. Buehrle put runners in scoring position on a few occasions but for the most part kept the Philadelphia batters handcuffed by mixing up his pitches and relying on a steady curve ball. "He does what he typically does," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "He keeps them off-balance, throws anything at any time and uses his defence. I dont know if I can describe it any more than that -- again." Gibbons smiled as he made the comment. He was then asked if hes getting tired of describing the steady approach of the reliable veteran, who has already gone into the seventh inning without allowing an earned run on three occasions this year. "All he does is keep winning," Gibbons added. "He does the same thing every time he wins. Just hit rewind." With two quick-working starters on the mound, the game sped along at a quick pace. Lee (3-3) retired the first seven Blue Jays in order before giving up a one-out single to Colby Rasmus in the third inning. Rasmus moved to third base on a ground-rule double by Steve Tolleson and scored on a sacrifice fly by Jose Reyes. The Phillies had threatened an inning earlier but Torontos defence kept them off the board. Marlon Byrd hit a one-out double and Tolleson made a nice play to scoop a slow roller near second base to retire Domonic Brown. Toronto right-fielder Jose Bautista recorded the third out by making a nice running catch at the warning track on a John Mayberry Jr. fly ball. Bautista showed his range again in the sixth inning with a great diving pickup on a sinking Chase Utley liner. Buehrle followed by striking out Carlos Ruiz. The Phillies had a runner on second base in the seventh inning but Buehrle got Cody Asche on a weak grounder for the third out. Encarnacion led off the Toronto half of the seventh with a standup triple. Philadelphia outfielder Ben Revere misplayed the ball, allowing it to bounce off the wall and roll back into centre field. "It looked like he gave up on it and it hit the bottom of the wall," Sandberg said. "Catchable ball. Things unravelled from that point forward. I could imagine there could be some frustration there with Cliff at that point. "He was out there battling and involved in a pitchers duel up to that point." Kratz took the next pitch from Lee into the second deck in left field for his second homer of the season. Dioner Navarro followed with a single and he scored when Franciscos line-drive homer barely cleared the wall in right field. "Just one of those innings where they hit everything," Lee said. "They didnt miss a pitch." Lee was pulled after giving up a one-out double to Tolleson. Mario Hollands came on in relief and threw a wild pitch to Reyes that allowed Tolleson to advance to third. Reyes walked, stole second and moved to third when Cabrera struck out on a wild pitch. The ball got away from Ruiz and Tolleson scored while Cabrera ran to first. The Phillies went to the bullpen for former Blue Jay Shawn Camp, who promptly gave up a single to Bautista. Encarnacion followed with a three-run shot to deep left-centre field for his fourth homer of the year. Kratz singled for his second hit of the inning before Navarro grounded into an inning-ending double play. "They flat out beat us in every way," Lee said. "Shut us out and scored 10 runs. Thats a pretty good beating right there." Notes: Buehrle allowed two walks and struck out six. Lee, meanwhile, allowed seven hits, six earned runs and a walk while striking out six. ... The seventh inning was Torontos highest-scoring frame since a 10-run inning against Tampa Bay on Aug. 31, 2010. ... Announced attendance was 16,446 and the game took two hours 23 minutes to play. ... Former Blue Jay A.J. Burnett (2-1) is scheduled to start for the Phillies on Thursday night. Toronto will counter with knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (2-3). ... Byrd hit a mammoth foul ball in the seventh inning. The ball curved foul and landed about 10 rows deep in the 500 level beside the left-field pole. ... Francisco now has four homers on the season. It was his first career home run off a left-handed pitcher. ... The Phillies have now lost their last seven meetings against Toronto, including five straight at Rogers Centre. ... Bautista has reached base safely in all 34 games this season. Myles Turner Jersey . -- Navy football player Will McKamey, who has been hospitalized since collapsing at practice three days ago, has died while in a coma. Darren Collison Jersey . Although taking two of three from the Baltimore Orioles wasnt nearly as uplifting as winning the World Series, it still felt pretty darn good. Felix Doubront and four relievers combined kept Baltimores potent lineup in check, and David Ortiz had three of Bostons 12 hits off Wei-Yin Chen in a 4-3 victory Thursday night. http://www.cheappacersjerseys.com/?tag=c...ke-evans-jersey. Hes had three top-10 results this season and feels ready to put it all together and finally hoist a trophy at the top level. Wholesale Pacers Jerseys . -- Tiago Splitter tipped in a rebound with 2. Domantas Sabonis Jersey . "I only want to go through this one more time," Crosby said Friday. The 24-year-old captain hasnt played since the symptoms resurfaced following a loss to Boston on Dec. 5. Doctors allowed him to return to full practice on Tuesday and while Crosby is pleased with the way his body is responding he refuses to put on his return. CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Reds Canadian first baseman Joey Votto is recovering from a strained muscle above his left knee and could soon begin a rehabilitation assignment in the minors. Votto, from Toronto, has been on the disabled list since May 21, trying to get rid of inflammation and to strengthen the muscle. He stayed in Cincinnati to get treatment on the leg while the team was on a seven-day trip. He was cleared to take batting practice with the team on Tuesday before the opener of a series against the San Francisco Giants. Rain washed out batting practice on the field, forcing players to hit indoors. Hes also going to take infield practice and run the bases the next few days. If he gets through that without a problem, he will start a rehab assignment. He and the team havent decided how many games hell need before hes ready to return. The Reds have gone 8-8 without him. "I feel really good, like I was before I got hurt earlier on in the season," Votto said. "So if I can get to good place, youre going to see a little bit more of the older version of me -- the younger version of me. Its one of these injuries that take a little bit of time.&" Votto is the 12th Reds player to go on the disabled list this season.dddddddddddd. The 2010 National League MVP is batting .257 with six homers and 12 RBIs in 39 games. The Reds are getting closer to having their lineup, rotation and bullpen back to full strength. Relievers Aroldis Chapman, Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall opened the season on the DL but have returned. Votto is the only regular position player still missing. Right-handed starter Mat Latos is scheduled to make another rehab start on Wednesday. If that goes well, he could be activated. Latos has been on the disabled list all season recovering from knee surgery and a strained forearm. The Reds opened their series on Tuesday with a 26-29 mark, in fourth place in the NL Central. They trailed Milwaukee by 7 1-2 games. "I think getting Joey back and possibly Mat Latos back in the rotation (soon) is definitely going to be a positive bump, not just for improving the 25-man roster but getting guys enthused that were close to being whole," manager Bryan Price said. "I think wed all be excited to see our club at full strength."
