TORONTO (AP) – Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer, Colby Rasmus and J.P. Arencibia each had a two-run shot and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Atlanta Braves 9-3 on Monday night.
    
Encarnacion went 2 for 5 with five RBIs as the Blue Jays improved to 3-0 in interleague play. Toronto has won nine of 12 against NL opponents dating to last season.
    
Mark Buehrle (2-3) allowed one run and five hits in six innings to snap a seven-start winless streak and earn his 26th career interleague victory. The veteran left-hander, whose previous win was April 15, is the all-time leader in interleague wins.
    
Buehrle walked two and struck out six. He retired 11 of his first 13 batters and didn't allow a hit until Evan Gattis' two-out double in the fourth.

Tim Hudson allowed 6 earned runs in 6 innings. He's now 0-3 with an 8.69 ERA in his last 4 starts.
