TORONTO (AP) - Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run single and the streaking Oakland Athletics beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-2 Tuesday night for their season-best sixth win in a row.
Derek Norris hit a two-run homer and Travis Blackley won his third straight decision as the A's improved to 15-2 in July. Oakland (52-44) is eight games over .500 for the first time since July 12, 2008.
Travis Snider and J.P. Arencibia each hit solo homers and Brett Lawrie had three hits for the Blue Jays, whose three-game winning streak came to an end.
