The Toronto Blue Jays lit up Bartolo Colon in the second inning here at Rogers Centre, scoring four runs on four hard hit balls and one well-placed bunt. Colon allowed singles to Adam Lind and David Cooper before Colby Rasmus scorched the first pitch he saw into right-center for a two-run double. After Colon walked Adam Loewen, Jose Molina, who won Friday night's game with a walk-off single in the ninth, hit a ground-rule double into the LF corner to make it 3-0. Mike McCoy finished off the scoring with a bunt up the first-base line that easily scored Loewen before Colon slipped a third strike past Kelly Johnson to end the inning. Jays lead, 4-0, and are batting in the bottom of the third.
