Lind, Rasmus HRs push Blue Jays past Rangers 6-1
Adam Lind and Colby Rasmus both hit two-run homers and the Toronto Blue Jays won their fourth game in a row, beat the sliding Rangers 6-1 on Saturday.
Even with the unexpected early return of second baseman Ian Kinsler from his rehabilitation assignment, the Rangers' season-long losing streak reached five games. All of those losses are at home, and they've dropped 10 of 14 overall to fall out of first place in the AL West.
Lind put the Blue Jays ahead to stay in the first, when his seventh homer of the season ricocheted high off pole down the right field line. Rasmus hit his 12th homer, and second in two games, in the fourth to make it 4-0.
Those homers accounted for all four runs off Josh Lindblom (0-2), who went six innings on his 26th birthday.
R.A. Dickey (6-8) gave up one run in 5 2-3 innings.
