SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run homer, Aaron Sanchez struck out five over seven innings, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on Monday night in their first visit to AT&T Park in nearly three years.

Encarnacion connected in the third off Jake Peavy (1-4), who has given up five homers in his last two outings and lost his third straight start.

Toronto had gone back-to-back games without a home run for the third time this season, but Encarnacion’s deep third-inning drive into the left-field bleachers kept the Blue Jays from doing so in three straight for the first time since Sept. 26-28, 2014.

Sanchez (3-1) allowed one run and three hits and walked one in a strong 105-pitch performance.
