MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Adam Lind hit a pair of three-run homers and J.A. Happ snapped a three-game losing streak, leading the Toronto Blue Jays over the Minnesota Twins 11-2 on Saturday night.
Lind's first home run highlighted a five-run first inning a night after Toronto posted five runs in the third frame in a victory over Minnesota. Lind went deep again in the eighth for his second multi-homer game this season and 10th of his career.
Happ (4-5), who entered the game with a 7.71 ERA in his last three outings, allowed an unearned run on five hits while striking out four. The left-hander, who suffered a fractured skull and sprained knee on May 7 when he was hit in the head by line drive, hadn't pitched past the fifth inning in back-to-back starts.
Kevin Correia (9-11) took the loss for Minnesota.
