The Toronto Blue Jays placed Russell Martin on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain on Saturday after the catcher exited the previous night's game following the first inning. It's all they would need.

TORONTO (AP) - J.A. Happ pitched six innings to win his third straight start, Josh Donaldson hit a two-run homer and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-1 Sunday. Tepesch allowed five runs in 4 1/3 innings in his Toronto debut against the Yankees last Wednesday. Through no fault of his own, he took the loss, going eight innings, and giving up four unearned runs on four hits, while striking out four.

A former first lieutenant in the United States Army, and the first graduate of the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY, to reach the majors, Rowley (1-0) missed all of the 2014 and 2015 minor league seasons while on active service, including a stint in Bulgaria. Harrison logged two hits, a run and an RBI on Friday; McCutchen had a hit and an RBI. He was nothing short of fantastic.

Dunford says he wants to underscore the United States' "ironclad commitment" to its alliance with Seoul and Tokyo. The general stopped in Hawaii on his way to consult with Navy Adm.

The right-hander, who began the season at Double-A, allowed one run five hits. The Jays offense didn't have to do much for Rowley, as it was really Pittsburgh's defense that gave him some run support. Not long after, he appeared to experience some discomfort in his left knee while leading off of second base.

More of Pittsburgh's follies in the field helped Toronto nudge the game out of reach in the seventh. Frazier made an errant throw to first and the second run scored. He went 1 for 3 with a walk. The Rays are now tied for the second wild card spot, so this is a very big series for the Jays indeed.
