TORONTO (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki hit two solo home runs, Josh Donaldson added a three-run blast and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Oakland 9-3 on Saturday, snapping Oakland's six-game winning streak.

J.A. Happ (3-0) allowed three runs and seven hits in seven innings to win his third straight start. The left-hander improved to 4-0 with a 2.95 ERA in eight career games against Oakland.

Ezequiel Carrera had the first four-hit game of his career and scored three times for the Blue Jays. He also made a pair of diving catches in left, one on Chris Coghlan in the fifth and another on Khris Davis in the ninth.

Mark Canha homered for the Athletics, whose seven-game road winning streak ended.

Tulowitzki homered to begin the fifth and seventh innings, the 12th multihomer game of his career. It was the first multihit game of the season for Tulowitzki, who also singled in the first.
