OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — Josh Donaldson hit a home run, Scott Kazmir allowed three hits over seven innings and the Oakland Athletics beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-1 on Saturday night.

Coco Crisp, Craig Gentry and Jed Lowrie drove in runs for the A’s, who won their third straight and seventh of 10 overall.

Kazmir (10-3) won for the fifth time in his last six decisions. He walked two and struck out eight, improving to 6-1 in eight home starts.

Edwin Encarnacion drove in a run in the first inning for the Blue Jays and then had to leave the game with right quad soreness.

Mark Buehrle (10-6) pitched well but remained winless in six starts since June 1.
