Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI, and two runs scored as the Blue Jays defeated the Indians 5-1 on Wednesday.

Donaldson started the scoring in the first inning with an RBI single, then added a two-run double in the second to make it 4-0. The third baseman pushes his major league lead in RBI to 111 and runs to 104. He's also batting .304/.372/.589 with 36 home runs on the year.

Troy Tulowitzki had two hits and two RBI in four trips to the plate as the Blue Jays took down the Indians on Wednesday.

Tulowitzki hit an RBI single in the first inning to make it a 2-0 game, then added a sacrifice fly in the third inning to push the Jays' lead to 5-0. The shortstop is on a six-game hitting streak and is now batting .242/.336/.387 with four home runs and 13 RBI as a member of the Blue Jays.
Sep 2 - 9:54 PM

R.A. Dickey pitched a complete game, limiting the Indians to one run in Wednesday's win.

The only run Dickey allowed in nine innings came on a Carlos Santana single in the fourth inning. It was one of four hits the knuckleballer gave up while striking out six and walking none. His ERA now sits at 4.09 along with a 1.25 WHIP and a 112/57 K/BB ratio over 182 2/3 innings. Dickey has won seven consecutive decisions over his last 10 starts and will look to make it eight next week in Boston against the Red Sox.

Marcus Stroman (knee) struck out seven over 4 2/3 scoreless innings in a rehab start with Class-A Lansing on Wednesday.

In his first rehab start, the right-hander didn't allow a single hit before exiting. Stroman threw 69 pitches in the contest. Stroman is working his way back from ACL surgery in spring and will next throw a bullpen session Friday before making his final rehab start Monday with Triple-A Buffalo. After that, the 24-year-old could be starting games for the Jays in a pennant race.

Russell Martin is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday.

Josh Thole has been catching R.A. Dickey since his recall and will do so again Wednesday. Martin has been dealing with some minors bumps and bruises of late.

Blue Jays LHP prospect Shane Dawson hurled seven shutout innings Tuesday in a win for High-A Dunedin.

It was his first career shutout. His lone blemish came on a second-inning single by Miguel Andujar. Dawson is 3-2 with a 3.12 ERA in five starts since his promotion from Low-A Lansing. Opponents have hit just .202 against him during that span.

Roberto Osuna blew the save in the ninth inning, but the Blue Jays still beat the Indians on Tuesday in 10 innings by a 5-3 margin.

Osuna was tasked with protecting a 3-2 lead in the ninth inning, but served up a one-out solo home run to Yan Gomes. It's only his second blown save in 18 opportunities, as he has otherwise been reliable in the closer's role. Osuna has a 1.99 ERA with a 66/12 K/BB ratio in 58 2/3 innings.

Marco Estrada pitched seven innings of two-run ball but took a no-decision as the Blue Jays needed 10 innings to defeat the Indians on Tuesday.

The only blemishes on Estrada's line were a pair of solo home runs: to Michael Brantley in the fourth inning, and to Yan Gomes in the seventh. They were two of five hits he allowed along with a walk and two strikeouts. The 32-year-old right-hander has put together a career year in Toronto, now carrying a 3.16 ERA with a 1.08 WHIP and a 107/44 K/BB ratio over 142 1/3 innings. Estrada has a date with the Red Sox at Fenway Park next.

Edwin Encarnacion's hitting streak ended at 26 games as he went 0-for-2 with a walk and a sacrifice fly in Tuesday's win against the Orioles.

Encarnacion put the Jays up 1-0 in the first inning with a sacrifice fly and drew a walk in the third inning but was stranded. He lined out to shortstop and fouled out to first base in his other two attempts. The 32-year-old is hitting .273/.361/.545 with 30 home runs and 92 RBI this season.
Sep 1 - 10:34 PM

Ryan Goins belted a walk-off two-run home run in the 10th inning as the Blue Jays overcame the Indians on Tuesday.

Closer Roberto Osuna blew the save in the ninth inning, but Goins picked up his teammate. The second baseman sent a Bryan Shaw offering over the fence in right field to break a 3-3 tie and send the Jays home happy. He finished 1-for-3 with a walk on the evening. Goins is typically not one for power hitting, as he's batting .246/.318/.357 with five home runs and 37 RBI on the year.
Sep 1 - 10:32 PM

Blue Jays recalled OF Dalton Pompey from Triple-A Buffalo.

It's been a wild ride for Pompey, who began the year on the Blue Jays roster only to find himself all the way back down to Double-A in June. The 22-year-old has bounced back nicely since, including a .327/.414/.414 batting line in 42 games since his return to Triple-A. He's still an interesting player for the long-term, but it's unlikely he'll see enough playing time the rest of the way to be fantasy relevant.
Sep 1 - 12:24 PM

Blue Jays recalled RHP Ryan Tepera from Triple-A Buffalo.

Tepera has pitched well with the Blue Jays this season, posting a 2.28 ERA and 16/4 K/BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings. The 27-year-old will return in a middle relief role.
Sep 1 - 12:20 PM

Blue Jays recalled INF Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo.

Kawasaki has bounced back and forth from the majors to the minors a few times this season while batting 3-for-18 (.167) over 14 games with the Blue Jays. The fan favorite will serve as a backup infielder for the final month of the regular season.
Sep 1 - 12:18 PM

Blue Jays recalled LHP Aaron Loup from Triple-A Buffalo.

Loup's peripherals are very impressive this season, with 40 strikeouts and just six walks over 36 1/3 innings, but he has struggled to the tune of a 5.20 ERA in 48 appearances. He'll hope for better results in his return to the big club.
Sep 1 - 12:16 PM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of LHP Jeff Francis from Triple-A Buffalo.

Francis struggled in eight appearances with the Blue Jays during the first half, but he's back for the stretch run. The veteran southpaw figures to pitch in a long relief role.
