Encarnacion homers, Jays beat Darvish, Rangers 3-2

Edwin Encarnacion hit his 31st home run, J.A. Happ won his second straight start and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Yu Darvish and the Rangers 3-2 Friday night, handing Texas its fourth loss in five games.

Darvish (12-9) lost for the second time in three starts, allowing three runs and three hits in seven innings. He walked one and struck out 10.

For Darvish, it was the seventh time this season he's reached double figures in strikeouts, tying him with Jim Bibby (1973) for the Rangers rookie mark.

Encarnacion, who became the first major leaguer to homer off Darvish when he took him deep in an April 30 Texas win at Rogers Centre, did it again with a second deck blast in the first, his 31st.
