Martin, Don­ald­son homer to help Jays

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

OAK­LAND, Calif. — Rus­sell Martin home­red, dou­bled and drove in three runs, Josh Don­ald­son went deep against his for­mer team and the Toronto Blue Jays pow­ered past the Oak­land Ath­let­ics 5-2 on Thurs­day. The Blue Jays con­tin­ued their pop at the plate to give knuck­le­baller R.A. Dickey (410) all the sup­port he needed. Dickey al­lowed two runs and five hits in 8 1/3 in­nings in place of ill starter Drew Hutchi­son, who is sched­uled to take the mound in Fri­day’s se­ries opener at Seat­tle in­stead. Drew Pomer­anz gave up two runs in 1 2/3 in­nings, and the bullpen also strug­gled to con­tain Toronto’s po­tent hit­ters. Dan Otero (2-4) al­lowed two runs in three in­nings for the loss. Bo Schultz got Ike Davis to ground into a dou­ble play for his first ca­reer save.
