TORONTO (AP) - R.A. Dickey won for the third time in four starts, Brett Lawrie homered and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Oakland Athletics 5-2 on Saturday.

The AL East-leading Blue Jays (28-22), who won for the 10th time in 12 games, haven't been atop the division this late into the season since July 6, 2000, when they were 46-40.

Dickey (5-4) allowed one run and five hits in a season-high 8 1-3 innings. He walked one and struck out four.

Jose Reyes and Anthony Gose each scored two runs as Toronto used its speed to hand AL West-leading Oakland its third straight loss, matching its longest slump of the season.

Lawrie's solo homer in the fifth was Toronto's ML-leading 69th, and marked the seventh straight game that at least one Blue Jays batter has connected. Toronto also leads baseball with 37 homers in May.
