Recap


Blue Jays 6, Phillies 5 (10): Rajai Davis belted a drive to center to plate Yunel Escobar with two outs in the 10th inning as host Toronto kept Cliff Lee winless by staging a late rally.

Escobar, who hit a solo homer earlier in the contest, walked and advanced to third on a balk and groundout, respectively. Davis then deposited an offering from Joe Savery (0-2) into center to hand the reeling Phillies their 11th setback in 14 games overall and eighth walk-off loss of the season. The ball bounced over the wall for what would normally be a ground-rule double, but it was officially ruled a single since Davis only needed to reach first to end the game.

Francisco Cordero (2-4) was credited with the win after working one scoreless inning.

A 17-game winner in 2011, Lee seemed poised to record his elusive first victory in his 11th start this season. The 2008 American League Cy Young Award winner held a 5-2 lead in the eighth inning, but shortstop Jimmy Rollins' error allowed Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista to score. J.P. Arencibia ripped a sinker from Chad Qualls down the left-field line for an RBI double to tie the game.

Lee allowed five runs on a season-high 12 hits to settle for a no-decision.

Colby Rasmus had an RBI single for the Blue Jays, who have won two straight after dropping six of their previous seven.

John Mayberry Jr. hit a three-run homer and Rollins and Hunter Pence added RBI doubles for the Phillies.

GAME NOTEBOOK: John Mayberry Sr. belted 102 homers as a member of the Blue Jays from 1978-82. ... Bautista reached base for the 16th straight game after he walked in the eighth inning. ... Philadelphia second baseman Chase Utley played five innings in an intrasquad game on Saturday. Utley is still working his way back after nursing chronically injured knees. ... With Carlos Ruiz nursing an oblique injury, the Phillies recalled catcher Erik Kratz from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and optioned right-hander B.J. Rosenberg to the Iron Pigs.
