SEATTLE — Ryan Borucki held down Seattle’s offence and the Toronto Blue Jays got home runs from Russell Martin and Devon Travis in a 7-2 win over the Mariners on Friday night.
Borucki (1-2), a rookie left-hander making his seventh start, gave up one run and four hits in eight innings, striking out two without issuing a walk to earn his first win in the majors.
The Blue Jays supported Borucki right away. Randal Grichuk led off the game with a double down the first-base line against Seattle starter Marco Gonzales and Travis singled him in. Toronto extended its lead to 2-0 in the fourth inning when Martin hit a solo homer to left-centre field.
