Jays win first series of the season

Defeat Astros 7–3 to take first two games of three-game set

Starter Brandon Morrow struck out nine and led the Toronto Blue Jays to victory yesterday at Rogers Centre against the Houston Astros.

Struggling third-baseman Brett Lawrie belted a home run to give the team some late-inning insurance in the 7–3 victory.

It’s the Jays’ first series win of the season.

The final game of the series will be played today. The scheduled starter for the Jays is ace R.A. Dickey and for the Astros Dallas Keuchel.
