Overbay Hits First Home Run of the Season

By  | 

Travis Snider hit two home runs, including a go-ahead two-run shot in the eighth inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied to beat the Minnesota Twins 8-6 Monday night.

Lyle Overbay added a two-run home run for Toronto, which has beaten Minnesota 10 straight times since June 28, 2007. Adam Lind, Alex Rios and Scott Rolen each had three hits in a 19-hit attack for Toronto.

Rod Barajas led off the eighth inning with a double to right-center off Luis Ayala (1-1). One pitch after a visit from pitching coach Rick Anderson, Ayala left a pitch over the plate and Snider hit it into the upperdeck in right field for his first career multihomer game.

Jason Frasor (1-0) pitched one scoreless inning of relief for the Blue Jays.
