Reyes 3 steals, 2 hits, Jays hand Astros 3rd straight loss
Jose Reyes stole three bases and got two hits as the Toronto Blue Jays won their season-high fourth in a row, beating Houston 7-2 Saturday and handing the Astros their third straight loss.
The AL West-leading Astros matched their longest skid of the year.
Reyes scored a run, drove in one and also walked.
Drew Hutchison (5-1) allowed one run and six hits in 6 1-3 innings, improving to 4-1 with a 2.72 ERA at home. He's 1-0 with a 7.80 ERA in six road starts.
The Astros failed to score more than three runs for the fourth straight game and seventh time in their past nine.
Brett Oberholtzer (0-1) allowed four runs, two earned, and six hits in 3 2-3 innings. He made his third start of the season after two stints on the disabled list with a blister on his left index finger.
Edwin Encarnacion got the Blue Jays started with an RBI single in the first and Toronto added three more in the second. Reyes and Kevin Pillar singled home runs and Josh Donaldson added a sacrifice fly.
Jose Altuve cut it to 4-1 with an RBI single in the third. The Blue Jays restored their four-run cushion on Pillar's RBI double off Jake Buchanan in the fifth.
Jonathan Villar hit a solo homer off Toronto reliever Steve Delabar in the eighth. Blue Jays pinch hitter Justin Smoak had a two-run double off Josh Fields in the bottom half.
Toronto's Chris Colabello finished 1 for 5 with a double, extending his career-high hitting streak to 16 games. It's the longest active streak in the majors.
Altuve went 3 for 4, his 22nd multihit game.
Astros: The day after his 12-game hitting streak ended, Chris Carter was held out of the starting lineup to get him a break from the artificial turf. Carter came on as a pinch hitter in the seventh and finished the game at first base. ... OF George Springer is expected to get the day off Sunday.
Blue Jays: Smoak batted for Encarnacion in the eighth after the slugger appeared to injure his shoulder on a swing earlier in the game.
Astros: RHP Colin McHugh (6-2, 4.33) seeks to win consecutive starts for the first time since April 21. He has allowed more than four earned runs just once in 11 starts.
Blue Jays: RHP R.A. Dickey (2-6, 5.53) didn't allow a home run in his last start after giving up seven in his previous four outings. Dickey matched a season high by allowing seven runs in five innings in an 8-4 loss at Houston on May 15.
