Cabrera, Bautista homer, Blue Jays beat Astros 5-2

TORONTO (AP)  Melky Cabrera homered for the fourth straight game, Jose Bautista also went deep and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Houston 5-2 on Tuesday night, handing the Astros their fifth loss in six games.

Cabrera hit a two-run shot off reliever Kevin Chapman in the seventh, connecting on an 0-2 pitch. He has hit more home runs in eight games this season than he did in 88 last season, when he missed time with leg injuries before having a benign tumor removed from his spine on Aug. 30.

Toronto left-hander Mark Buehrle (2-0) allowed one run and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings, walked one and struck out three.
