Rough 5th inning dooms Rangers versus Jays

Corey Patterson and Jose Bautista homered on consecutive pitches, tough-luck starter Kyle Drabek finally got another victory and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the AL West-leading Texas Rangers 6-4 Monday night.
Patterson's three-run shot off Colby Lewis (1-3) with two outs
in the fifth was followed by Bautista's 405-foot blast to left -
his majors-leading eighth homer. After pitching coach Mike Maddux
visited the mound, Adam Lind drew a walk and Juan Rivera followed
with his first homer of the season for a 6-0 lead.
Drabek (2-0), a 23-year-old rookie and Texas native, had gotten
a no-decision in three consecutive starts that the Blue Jays won
after he had pitched into at least the sixth. The right-hander gave
up three runs and five hits in six innings against the Rangers.
