Encarnacion hits 14th homer, Jays beat Braves 9-3

TORONTO (AP) - Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer, Colby Rasmus and J.P. Arencibia each had a two-run shot and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Atlanta Braves 9-3 on Monday night.

Encarnacion went 2 for 5 with five RBIs as the Blue Jays improved to 3-0 in interleague play. Toronto has won 9 of 12 against NL opponents dating to last season.

Mark Buehrle (2-3) allowed one run and five hits in six innings to snap a seven-start winless streak and earn his 26th career interleague victory. The veteran left-hander, whose previous win was April 15, is the all-time leader in interleague wins.

Buehrle walked two and struck out six. He retired 11 of his first 13 batters and didn't allow a hit until Evan Gattis' two-out double in the fourth.
