Adam Lind and Rod Barajas each homered twice, with Lind's first career grand slam helping power Toronto to a big early lead before the Blue Jays held on for a 18-10 victory over the slipping Texas Rangers on Monday night.
Lind had a career-high eight RBIs, matching the most in the
majors this season when he hit a solo homer and a three-run double
in Toronto's seven-run ninth that finally put the game out of reach
after Texas had rallied from an 11-run deficit to make it 11-10.
The Rangers (72-58), who came up short of their largest comeback
victory in team history, wrapped up a losing August and dropped
four games behind idle Boston in the AL wild-card race.
