Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - Jose Bautista hit a two-run homer to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to a 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday.
Munenori Kawasaki, who replaced an injured Jose Reyes in the starting lineup, had a sacrifice fly and scored once for the Blue Jays, winners in three of their last four games.
Prior to the game, Reyes was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle sprain, and selected the contract of Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo. Reyes suffered the injury in Friday's win. Although MRI results were not immediately released, Reyes could be out for three months.
R.A. Dickey (1-2) allowed one run on five hits over 6 1/3 innings to earn the win. Casey Janssen gave up one run in the ninth but was able to record the final out to pick up his third save of the season.
Chris Getz went 3-for-4 with an RBI and Alex Gordon had two hits and drove in a run for the Royals, who have dropped their last two after winning four straight.
James Shields (1-2) lasted all nine innings, giving up three runs on two hits to go with six strikeouts.
