Recap


Blue Jays 5, Indians 4:
Munenori Kawasaki hit the go-ahead single in a three-run ninth inning as Toronto upended host Cleveland.

After Indians reliever Joe Smith loaded the bases with two out on a J.P. Arencibia single and an Emilio Bonifacio walk, Kawasaki put Toronto ahead with a sharp single to left-center field. Colby Rasmus and Arencibia came around to score, and Bonifacio followed suit after outfielder Michael Bourn misplayed the ball to make it 5-2.

The rally made a winner out of Neil Wagner (2-3), who recorded the final out of the eighth. Asdrubal Cabrera had an RBI single in the ninth and came around to score on Kawasaki's throwing error, but Steve Delabar got Michael Brantley to fly out with runners on second and third for his first career major-league save.

Rich Hill (0-1) drew the loss after issuing a one-out walk to Rasmus in the ninth.

Cleveland opened the scoring in the second as Brantley and Carlos Santana drew back-to-back walks and Jason Giambi followed with an RBI single to center. Toronto pulled ahead in the seventh after Bonifacio looped a two-out, two-run single to shallow right.

The Indians battled back the following inning. Bourn singled, stole second and came around to score on Brantley's single to center.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Indians starter Justin Masterson, making his first All-Star appearance next week, surrendered two runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings. Toronto counterpart Esmil Rogers limited Cleveland to a run on four hits over six frames. ... Indians RHP Preston Guilmet retired both batters he faced in his major-league debut. Guilmet, who turns 26 on July 27, was the Indians' ninth-round pick in 2009. ... Toronto's win gives it a 192-191 edge in the all-time series.
