TORONTO (AP) - Chad Jenkins earned his first major league win, Kelly Johnson hit a two-run home run and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Minnesota Twins 4-3 on Tuesday night.
Making his third career start, Jenkins (1-3) allowed two runs and five hits in five-plus innings. The right-hander walked one and struck out two. Three-time batting champion Joe Mauer went hitless in three at-bats, dropping his average to .320.
Detroit's Miguel Cabrera is leading the batting race, hitting .331. Angels rookie Mike Trout is second.
Aaron Loup, Steve Delabar and Darren Oliver all worked one inning before Casey Janssen finished for his 22nd save in 25 chances, handing the Twins their fourth straight defeat.
