Blue Jays tag Matt Bush with third blown save in ninth

The Blue Jays won despite blowing a 5-1 lead in their first visit to Texas since last post-season, when they won the first two games in a best-of-five sweep that was their second straight Division Series victory over the two-time defending AL West champs. "I don't think anybody even thinks about it, to be honest". Morales' hit to the gap in left-centre scored Donaldson from second after a stolen base and a walk.

Donaldson's single off closer Matt Bush scored Ryan Goins, who just beat the throw to second for a leadoff double.

Jose Bautista, who took a punch to the jaw from Rougned Odor in a wild brawl in Toronto's last regular-season game at Texas last season, started the Blue Jays' four-run fourth with his 12th home run, a 442-foot shot over the lower-deck seats in left.

How Rangers hitters fared: Nomar Mazara homered in the first to give Texas a 1-0 lead against Marco Estrada.

J.A. Happ (2-4) picked up his first home win of the season, giving up three runs and eight hits over 6 2/3 innings. In the fourth, Elvis Andrus' two-out, two-run single through the left side pulled the Rangers to within 5-3. He struck out five. His WHIP on the season is 1.63.

Notables: Beltre's three-run double in the fourth moved him past Al Kaline for 37th all-time with 1,583 RBIs. He's at 2,959 career hits.

The Toronto Blue Jays placed reliever Joe Smith on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation Monday and recalled fellow right-hander Leonel Campos from Triple-A Buffalo.

Rangers: LHP Cole Hamels (right oblique strain) is scheduled for his second rehab start Wednesday with Double-A Frisco. OF Jared Hoying was sent down.

The pitching matchup today has Francisco Liriano (3-2, 5.36 ERA) on the mound for the Blue Jays to face Nick Martinez (1-3, 4.67) of the Rangers. He gave up three runs - two earned - with nine strikeouts in a no-decision.

Bibens-Dirkx recorded his first win as a starter at Washington on June 11, when he held the Nationals to one run and three hits in seven frames.
