Blue Jays keep rolling
Blue Jays 9, Royals 1
Reed Johnson had an RBI single and scored a run in Monday's win over Kansas City. (AP)
 Overbay's double
 Wells' solo homer
A.J. Burnett saved his good stuff for the home crowd. He bounced back after last week's unimpressive debut, allowing just one run over 6 2/3 innings as the Jays rolled to a home-opening victory at Rogers Centre. Burnett had plenty of help, too, as every starter in the hot-hitting lineup recorded at least one hit.
