Blanton cages Blue Jays
Jays fade in opener
Ted Lilly started strong, allowing only one run in the first five innings, but a three-run sixth ended the lefty's bid for his 10th win. Troy Glaus responded from getting plunked in the second with RBIs in the fourth and sixth innings, but Toronto couldn't keep up with Oakland's late-game surge.

Series at a glance:
A's late offense seals it
Joe Blanton picked up his 11th win, holding the Jays down and riding a lively offense. Jay Payton hit his sixth homer of the season to get Oakland on the board in the fourth, and Eric Chavez drove in a pair and scored in the sixth. Payton came through again with an RBI single in the seventh.
