TORONTO - When the Blue Jays were constructed this winter the game plan was not to have Thad Weber pitching three consecutive days, especially with the game on the line.

Yet, when Brandon Morrow left after only two innings, there was Weber on the mound in the top of the 10th.

Casey Janssen and Brad Lincoln were the only arms remaining in the Jays bullpen and they had a good view of Brian McCann’s home run to right which gave the Atlanta Braves a 7-6 win before 45,224 fans at Rogers Centre.

Adam Lind walked to open the bottom of the 10th but Craig Kimbrel set down Colby Rasmus (strikeout), Maicer Izturis (pop up) and Emilio Bonifacio (line drive to left) to end it.
