TORONTO, Ont. (AP) – Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs, Juan Francisco also connected and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Indians 4-2 Thursday night.

It was Jays manager John Gibbons’s 400th career win.

Encarnacion hit a solo homer in the second off Danny Salazar and added a two-run blast in the fifth off C.C. Lee. It was his second multihomer game of the season and the 13th of his career.

Encarnacion finished 3 for 4, adding a double in the third.

Two batters after Encarnacion’s homer in the second, Francisco also went deep off Salazar (1-4) , who lost for the fourth time in seven starts.

David Murphy homered for the Indians, whose streak of series victories was snapped at three.

Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ allowed one run and six hits in a season-high six innings. Happ (2-1) walked two and struck out four.
