TORONTO -- Rajai Davis' RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning capped a late innings Toronto Blue Jays (33-32) comeback Saturday.

Trailing for most of the game, the Jays rallied in the eighth inning with three runs before scoring in the 10th to pick up a 6-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies (31-36).

Yunel Escobar led off the 10th with a walk and advanced to second when pitcher Joe Savery (0-2) was called for a balk on a move to first. Escobar advanced to third on a Mike McCoy groundout before Davis drove a ball deep to left center field that score the winner.

Francisco Cordero (2-4) picked up the win after coming on to pitch the 10th for Toronto.

The Phillies scored a run in the first and then three more on John Mayberry Jr.'s three-run home run in the third inning.

Jimmy Rollins' ground-rule double to right field in the eighth inning off Jays recently recalled Robert Coello drove in Brian Schneider seemed to give the Phillies a three-run cushion but the Jays roared back in the eighth.

Jose Bautista walked and then Edwin Encarnacion singled. Encarnacion went for second when the Phillies tried getting Bautista at third base but Jimmy Rollins' throw to second went into right field. Bautista and Encarnacion scored on the error.

Starter Cliff Lee then gave up a single to Kelly Johnson, which brought an end to his afternoon as he was replaced by Chad Qualls. Lee went seven plus innings and gave up two earned runs on 10 hits.

Johnson moved to third on Yan Gomes' single and then both were brought home with J.P. Arencibia's game-tying double.

Ricky Romero went six innings and gave up four earned runs while striking out three and walking one batter.

Back-to-back one-out doubles by Placido Polanco and Hunter Pence in the top of the first gave the Phillies the first run of the game.

The Jays quickly leveled matters in the bottom of the second. Yunel Escobar took a 1-0 pitch from Lee out for his fourth home run of the season.

The Phillies got the lead back on their next turn at the plate. After having Romero retire their first two batters in the third, Shane Victorino and Ty Wigginton singled before John Mayberry Jr. hit his fourth of the season-taking a 1-1 pitch from Romero out. Mayberry's father, John Sr., played for the Jays from 1978-1982.

With one out in their half of the third, Davis singled, got to second on Brett Lawrie's single, stole third and then was brought in on Colby Rasmus' single.
