Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Coco Crisp hit a pair of solo homers and scored three times and Yoenis Cespedes hit a pair of doubles and drove in a two, as the Oakland Athletics hammered the Toronto Blue Jays, 16-0, in the middle tilt of a three-game set at Rogers Centre.

Chris Carter homered and drove in three, Brandon Inge had a pair of RBI while Jonny Gomes, Josh Reddick and Derek Norris each knocked in a run for the A's, who have won a season-high seven in a row. It is the club's longest winning streak since it rattled off seven straight wins Sept. 14-20 2009.

A.J. Griffin (3-0) tossed six scoreless innings, allowing three hits and walked two while fanning a career-high nine batters, helping the A's move to 16-2 this month.

Edwin Encarnacion and Anthony Gose both doubled for the Blue Jays, losers in six of 11 since the All-Star break.

Ricky Romero (8-7) was pegged with the loss after giving up eight runs on four hits and six walks in just 1 1/3 innings of work.

Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia suffered a fractured right hand and is expected to miss up to six weeks. The 26-year-old took a foul tip off his throwing hand in the second inning.
