TORONTO -- Adam Lind hit a three-run homer and left-hander Mark Buehrle won his second straight start as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Colorado Rockies 5-2 on Wednesday to extend their winning streak to a season-best eight games.
The Blue Jays (35-36) completed a three-game sweep of the Rockies (37-36) before a crowd of 27,235 at Rogers Centre, where Colorado is 0-9 in three interleague series. Toronto is 0-6 at Colorado.
The Blue Jays moved to within one game of .500 for the first time since April 15, when they were 6-7.
Buehrle (4-4) pitched five innings and allowed two runs and eight hits, including a home run by Carlos Gonzalez. It was Buehrle's shortest outing since April 10, when he lasted 4 1/3 innings.
Rockies right-hander Juan Nicasio (4-3) allowed four hits and four runs (two earned) in five innings.
The Rockies had their chances but stranded 10 runners while the Blue Jays left five.
The Blue Jays scored three runs in the first on Lind's ninth homer of the season after Jose Bautista reached on a throwing error by third baseman Nolan Arenado and Edwin Encarnacion singled.
The Rockies scored one in the second on a double by Jordan Pacheco and a single by Yorvit Torrealba.
The Blue Jays tacked on an unearned run in the fourth. Colby Rasmus led off with a walk, took third on an error by second baseman DJ LeMahieu and scored when the Rockies could not complete the double play on Emilio Bonifacio's grounder to shortstop.
Gonzalez got that run back when he led off the fifth with his 21st homer of the season. Wilin Rosario's double and an error at shortstop by Kawasaki put runners at the corners with two out before Buehrle struck out Tyler Colvin to end the inning.
Right-hander Neil Wagner took over for Toronto in the sixth. He was followed by left-hander Brett Cecil, who retired all three hitters in the seventh to set a club record of 38 consecutive batters without allowing a hit.
The Blue Jays increased their lead to 5-2 in the seventh against right-hander Rob Scahill on a triple by Munenori Kawasaki and a single by Melky Cabrera.
After Steve Delabar pitched the eighth, Casey Janssen pitched the ninth to earn his 16th save.
