Blue Jays Beat Twins 7-5

Justin Smoak and Russell Martin homered, Yangervis Solarte had three hits and the Blue Jays beat the Minnesota Twins for a 7-5 win.

Smoak hit a towering, two-run shot to cap a three-run fourth inning to stake Toronto to a 5-0 lead.  

Martin added a solo homer to the second deck in left field an inning later as the Blue Jays won their second game in a row.

The Twins have lost 10 of their past 11 games.

Aaron Sanchez (2-2) was the beneficiary of the run support as he pitched six innings and allowed four runs and six hits and three walks.
