Mariners Win Series Against Blue Jays, but Lose Game Three

TORONTO (AP) - Edwin Encarnacion hit his 40th home run, Adam Lind also connected and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Seattle Mariners 8-3 Thursday night to send Felix Hernandez to his third straight loss.

Encarnacion hit a three-run drive into the second deck in left in a five-run fourth inning as the Blue Jays avoided a three-game sweep. Lind hit a two-run shot to right in the first.

Hernandez (13-8) allowed a season-high seven runs and 10 hits in four innings, struck out four and walked one. He has a 9.00 in his last three outings, losing three consecutive starts for the first time since Sept. 12-24 last year.

Hernandez is 2-3 since throwing the major leagues' 23rd perfect game against Tampa Bay on Aug. 15.
