Sloppy Play Dooms Mariners in Loss

SEATTLE (AP) - Jose Reyes homered on the first pitch of the game, added an RBI single to cap Toronto's big fourth inning, and the Blue Jays handed Seattle ace Felix Hernandez his first loss since late May with a 7-2 win over the Mariners on Tuesday. 

The Blue Jays battered Hernandez (11-5) and knocked him out after just five innings, matching his shortest start of the season.

A leading contender for a second AL Cy Young Award, Hernandez got no help from his defense that committed three errors that led to three unearned runs while he was on the mound. 

Despite lasting just five innings, Hernandez's ERA only rose from 2.30 to 2.39. Hernandez had not lost since May 25, a span of 12 starts.

Toronto's Josh Johnson (2-8) pitched well with his potential spot in the rotation at stake. Johnson threw five scoreless innings and won for the first time since June 23, snapping a six-game losing streak.
