Toronto connected three times off homer-prone lefty J.A. Happ (9-7).

Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio scored on the play, putting the Blue Jays ahead of NY 5-4 - a lead they maintained for the victory.

Wilmer Font pitched two ideal innings as the Blue Jays opener before Jacob Waguespack took over and allowed Sanchez's 25th home run.

Gardner was ejected and had to be restrained from going after home plate umpire Chris Segal in the fourth.

Waguespack retired five of his first six batters but was greeted with a two-out solo home run from NY catcher Gary Sanchez in the fourth inning.

The two-run Grichuk homer in the first gave the outfielder a team-leading 20=. Same for Law, (Tim) Mayza.

Since arriving on the major-league scene July 29, Bichette has been one of baseball's hottest hitters. Danny Jansen's three-run belt took a successful video challenge and a botched play on a Derek Fisher pop up that allowed him to earn a walk. He allowed six runs on four hits, walked three batters and allowed three home runs. Eugenio Suarez and Joey Votto also connected for Cincinnati.

CHICAGO - Oakland right-hander Mike Fiers tossed seven sparkling innings to extend his career-best win streak to nine consecutive decisions.

NY improved to an AL East-best 77-41 and the Jays failed to get to 50 wins (49-71) and start a home set against Texas on Monday. Matt Chapman and Stephen Piscotty also went deep.
