TORONTO (AP) - Colby Rasmus drove in Emilio Bonifacio with a game-winning single in the ninth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Houston Astros 2-1 on Sunday.
Rajai Davis stole a career-high four bases as the Blue Jays won for the third time in four games against Houston, owners of the worst record in the majors.
Bonifacio doubled to begin the ninth against Jose Cisnero (2-2), and Wesley Wright came on to strike out pinch-hitter Adam Lind, who was batting in place of the ejected Jose Bautista.
Edwin Encarnacion was intentionally walked to bring up Rasmus, who bounced a single over the mound and up the middle as Bonifacio scored standing up.
Casey Janssen (3-0) worked one scoreless inning for the Blue Jays, who rebounded against Houston after being swept in consecutive series against Tampa Bay and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
