TORONTO (AP) - Jose Bautista hit his 20th home run, Mark Buehrle pitched seven shutout innings to win for the first time in three starts and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Minnesota Twins 4-0 Friday.

Jose Reyes had three hits, two RBIs and a stolen base as the Blue Jays snapped a three-game skid and won for just the fourth time in 12 games since matching a franchise record with an 11-game winning streak.

Buehrle (5-5) allowed six hits, walked none and struck out five. The left-hander is 3-0 with a 1.69 ERA in his past five home starts.

Brett Cecil worked the eighth and Dustin McGowan finished as Minnesota was shut out for the seventh time.
