TORONTO (AP) - Jose Bautista hit a two-run homer, Ezequiel Carrera added a solo shot and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Oakland Athletics 6-3 on Sunday.

Josh Donaldson scored twice for Toronto. The Blue Jays, the highest-scoring team in the majors last year, have posted at least five runs for a season-best three games in a row.

Chris Coghlan, Khris Davis, and Josh Reddick each hit solo home runs for the Athletics, who lost their second in a row after winning the previous six.

Recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to make a spot start as Toronto gave its rotation an extra day of rest, right-hander Drew Hutchison (1-0) allowed two runs and four hits in 5 2-3 innings.

Jesse Chavez and Brett Cecil each got two outs, Drew Storen worked the eighth and Roberto Osuna finished for his sixth save.

Eric Surkamp (0-2) allowed six runs and nine hits in 4 2-3 innings.
