Encarnacion homers as Blue Jays sweep Athletics

TORONTO (AP) - Edwin Encarnacion homered, J.A. Happ won his third straight start and the Toronto Blue Jays completed a three-game sweep of Oakland, beating the Athletics 3-1 on Sunday.

The Blue Jays, who lead the AL East, won their season-best sixth straight. It's Toronto's longest streak since an 11-game run last June. The Blue Jays have won 11 of 13 and 16 of 21.

The AL West-leading Athletics lost their fourth straight, their longest losing streak of the season. Oakland, which came in leading the AL in runs, has scored just seven times in the past four games.

Happ (4-1) allowed four hits in a season-high seven innings. He walked three and struck out a season-high seven.
