He was just as worrisome. Santos retired Michael Brantley on a hard grounder with the bases loaded in the ninth inning to close out Torontos 3-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night. Melky Cabrera had four hits and scored Torontos go-ahead run in the seventh inning on Edwin Encarnacions single before the Blue Jays withstood a shaky ninth by Santos, who bounced back from an awful outing in Minnesota on Thursday. "It got a little hairy there," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "But the bottom line is he got it done."

Santos then went to 3-2 counts before walking Jason Kipnis and Carlos Santana to load the bases before getting Brantley on a one-hop smash that Encarnacion knocked down before touching the bag. "Trust me, Id love to get a 1-2-3 with fewer pitches," Santos said. "But its a long year and Im trying to learn as much as I can." Santos insisted he didnt carry Thursdays performance to the mound. "I didnt think about that once," he said. "The second we left Minnesota, all that stuff was left there. New day. New stadium. New team. New opportunity. Thats all I was looking for." The Blue Jays trailed 2-1 in the seventh before Munenori Kawasaki hit an RBI single off reliever Marc Rzepczynski (0-1), and Encarnacion delivered against Cody Allen. Steve Delabar (1-0), also involved in the eighth-inning debacle at Minnesota, got the win in relief of starter Drew Hutchison.

Bautista was then walked intentionally and Encarnacion hammered his single to centre, putting the Blue Jays ahead 3-2. Gomes and Swisher had put on a play to try to pick off Kawasaki, but the throw skipped into right field. "Its a hard one to swallow," Gomes said. "Probably right there it cost us the game." Santana busted out of a long slump with his homer in the sixth off Hutchison to give the Indians a 2-1 lead. Santana was in a 1-for-30 slide before he connected off Hutchison, who took a shutout into the sixth with nine strikeouts. Santana had been hitless in his previous 11 at-bats.
