TORONTO (AP) - Jose Bautista hit a solo home run, Drew Hutchison pitched seven strong innings and the Toronto Blue Jays won their ninth straight game, beating the Oakland Athletics 4-2 on Tuesday night.
Toronto starting pitchers have held the opposition to three earned runs or fewer in 15 consecutive games.
Hutchison (11-2) allowed two runs and four hits in seven-plus innings. The right-hander hadn't completed seven innings since a complete-game victory over the Chicago White Sox on May 25.
Hutchison is 9-1 with a 2.68 ERA in 12 home starts and 2-1 with a 9.00 ERA in 11 road outings.
Roberto Osuna pitched the ninth for his 11th save.
