The Blue Jays jumped out to an early 5-0 lead in the first inning, then a grand slam by Adam Lind in the fourth seemed to put the game out of reach. But the Rangers rallied against starter Brett Cecil and the bullpen, leaving the Jays with a one-run lead going into the ninth. Not content, Toronto added seven more runs.
