TORONTO -- Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer in the first inning, Kevin Pillar singled home the winning run in the ninth and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Minnesota Twins 5-4 on Monday night.

Jose Reyes had a solo shot for the Blue Jays, who squandered a two-run lead in the top of the ninth but recovered to avoid their first three-game skid since May 9-11.

Dioner Navarro drew a leadoff walk from Matt Guerrier (0-1) and was replaced by pinch-runner Erik Kratz. Anthony Gose struck out trying to bunt and Casey Fien came on to face Reyes, who singled. Pillar followed with a single to right, and Kratz slid home headfirst ahead of the throw from Oswaldo Arcia.

Casey Janssen (1-0) got the win after blowing his second save.
