Blue Jays win eighth straight, beat Rockies 5-2

TORONTO (AP) - Adam Lind hit a three-run home run, Mark Buehrle won his second straight start and the Toronto Blue Jays earned their eighth consecutive victory Wednesday, beating the Colorado Rockies 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep.

The eight-game streak is Toronto's longest since a 10-game run in late 2008.

Carlos Gonzalez hit his NL-leading 21st home run, but the Rockies lost for the sixth time in eight games.

Buehrle (4-4) allowed two runs and eight hits in five innings.

Neil Wagner pitched the sixth, Brett Cecil worked the seventh, Steve Delabar handled the eighth and Casey Janssen finished for his 16th save in 17 chances.

Juan Nicasio (4-3) allowed four runs, two earned, and four hits in five innings. The right-hander has not won in six starts.
