TORONTO - Mark Buehrle has a good thing going against the Oakland Athletics

In his previous start against the A’s in Oakland last week, Buehrle tossed seven shutout innings, allowing just five hits.

He wasn’t as sharp Saturday, but wasn’t far off.

Buehrle allowed a two-run homer to Josh Reddick in the second inning and another run in the sixth but finished with the W in a 5-4 victory for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Buehrle lasted 5 1/3 innings before giving way to Brett Cecil with a 4-3 lead, one out and a runner at third base.

Cecil did a great job holding the fort as after hitting Chris Young on a 3-2 pitch, he struck out the dangerous Reddick and ended the inning by getting Alberto Callaspo to pop out.
