Rangers avoid sweep in Toronto

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

TORONTO – A solid start from Texas right-han­der An­drew Cash­ner brought an end to the sud­denly surg­ing Toronto Blue Jays’ sea­son­high five-game win­ning streak.

Cash­ner (2-4) al­lowed one run and just five hits dur­ing seven in­nings to help the Rangers (25-26) avoid a sweep with a 3-1 win in front of 46,188 fans at the Rogers Cen­tre on Sun­day.

That spoiled the best out­ing of the sea­son from re­liever-turned-starter Joe Bi­agini (13), who threw a ca­reer-high 95 pitches and gave up two runs in six in­nings for the Blue Jays (23-27), who fi­nally have most of their lineup healthy as they wrap the first leg of a 10-game, 10-day home­s­tand.
