ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Eighth-inning doubles by Kevin Pillar and Jose Reyes produced the go-ahead run as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Texas Rangers 4-2 on Saturday night.
Right-hander Steve Delabar (3-0) retired four straight, including striking out the side in the eighth, to earn the victory. The Blue Jays added an unearned run in the ninth.
Toronto has won three straight while Texas has lost four in a row.
Toronto took a 1-0 lead on a first-inning home run by Jose Bautista that was pulled down the left-field line with two outs.
Michael Choice's third-inning RBI single to left tied the score and ended Texas' scoreless streak at 15 innings.
The Blue Jays broke a 1-1 tie in the seventh when Anthony Gose led off by legging out a double to left, stole third and scored on Melky Cabrera's chopper to third.
