Over the course of an unusual 5-2 Wedneday matinee win at the Coliseum the Jays played the first six innings as if they had never before seen the sun.

The no-decision for starter R.A. Dickey was partially the result of the high sky and four fielding errors leaving with the game tied at twos. But in halting stumbling fashion the Jays captured the rubber game of the series vs. the first-place A's before heading down the California coast to play the Angels in a four-game set.

The big men came up big for the Jays in extra innings. Leading off the 10th against former Jays right-hander Jesse Chavez shortstop Jose Reyes singled off the pitcher's leg. He advanced to second on a passed ball charged to Stephen Vogt — his second of the game — then scored on a ground-ball double just inside the first base line by Jose Bautista.

The Jays added two insurance runs as Colby Rasmus slashed a bases-loaded ground ball through a drawn-in infield. Infielder Alberto Callaspo making his first A's appearance after a trade with the Angels seemed confused about positioning. Casey Janssen worked the ninth for the win. Brett Cecil earned his first career save.
