Cabrera gets 4 hits, Blue Jays edge Indians 3-2

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND (AP) - Melky Cabrera had four hits and scored Toronto's go-ahead run in the seventh inning on Edwin Encarnacion's single, and the Blue Jays held on for a 3-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.

The Blue Jays trailed 2-1 in the seventh before Munenori Kawasaki hit an RBI single off reliever Marc Rzepczynski (0-1) and Encarnacion delivered against Cody Allen.

Steve Delabar (1-0), one of three Toronto relievers to combine for eight walks in the eighth inning in a loss at Minnesota on Thursday, got the win in relief of starter Drew Hutchison.

Sergio Santos worked a very shaky ninth for his fifth save, one night after his three wild pitches in the eighth-inning debacle allowed the Twins to score three runs. Santos loaded the bases before retiring Michael Brantley on a hard grounder to first for the final out.
