Dingers deliver win
Photos
Blue Jays 10, Indians 6
Aaron Hill rounds the bases after hitting his 21st homer in the fourth inning. (AP)
The Jays hit a season-high five homers, the team's most dingers since July 2006, to overcome a subpar start from Ricky Romero and even their series with the Indians. In addition to Marco Scutaro's pair of taters, Vernon Wells, Aaron Hill and Alex Rios went deep.
