Arencibia homer leads Jays past Rangers

J.P. Arencibia hit a three-run homer, Brett Cecil beat All-Star Alexi Ogando for the second straight start and the Toronto Blue Jays edged the Texas Rangers 3-2 on Friday night.
Nelson Cruz and Mike Napoli homered for the Rangers, who lost
for the third time in four games. But Cruz left in the fifth inning
with tightness in his left quadriceps muscle.
Cecil (4-4) pitched a four-hitter in Toronto's 3-0 victory at
Arlington last Sunday and was sharp again in this one. The
left-hander allowed one run and seven hits in seven innings to win
consecutive starts for the first time this season.
Frank Francisco worked the eighth and Jon Rauch pitched around
Napoli's homer to close it out for his ninth save in 13
opportunities.
