ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Bo Bichette homered for the fifth time in the last four games, Danny Jansen hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning and the playoff-contending Toronto Blue Jays beat Texas 4-3. Top Rangers prospect Josh Jung hit a home run in his first career at-bat.

Bichette’s 23rd homer was a two-run shot in the third inning that put the Blue Jays up 3-0.
