Blue Jays 6, Rangers 3
Casey Janssen gave up two earned runs over 5 1/3 innings on Monday night. (AP)
On the day when Lyle Overbay won the AL Player of the Week, it was Adam Lind who showed his worth, notching two two-run homers, both with Vernon Wells on base, off Scott Feldman. Casey Janssen started off strong, but fell into trouble with control in the sixth inning.
