Blue Jays Bombard Mariners, 14-4
TORONTO (AP) -- Jose Bautista homered and reached base four times, J.A. Happ won for the first time in four starts and the Toronto Blue Jays dealt a blow to Seattle's wild card hopes, routing the Mariners 14-4 Monday night.
Bautista went 3 for 3 with a walk and drove in two runs before getting the rest of the night off. His solo homer in the fifth against Mariners reliever Tom Wilhelmsen was his 35th.
Kevin Pillar hit a two-run homer and Anthony Gose added a solo blast as the Blue Jays handed Seattle its third straight defeat.
Happ (10-11) allowed an RBI double by Robinson Cano in the first, and Kyle Seager's solo homer in the sixth.
Seattle's James Paxton (6-4) gave up a career-high nine runs, walked a career-high six and matched a career high by giving up seven hits in 2 2-3 innings, his shortest career start.
