    MONTREAL: Josh Donaldson homered in the seventh inning and singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) as the Toronto Blue Jays beat Cleveland 9-6, snapping the Indians’ club-record 14-game Major League Baseball win streak.

    Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer and Troy Tulowitzki added a two-run homer for the Blue Jays, who improved to 44-39, while Carlos Santana homered for the Indians, who fell to 49-31.

    Cleveland still owns a 6 1/2-game lead over reigning World Series champion Kansas City in the American League Central division while Toronto moved within five games of pace-setting Baltimore in the AL East.

    Cleveland leftfielder Rajai Davis hit for the cycle with a single in the ninth inning, completing the full collection of hits that also included a homer in the first inning, a triple in the third and a double in the seventh.

    He became only the eighth Indians’ player to hit for the cycle, the first since Travis Hafner in 2003.
