HOUSTON - The Toronto Blue Jays somehow found a happy ending to an otherwise disastrous 10-game road swing Sunday, scoring twice in the ninth inning for a 2-1 win over the Houston Astros.

The come-from-behind victory snapped a seven-game losing streak as the Jays were victorious for only the second time on the road trip, rewarding starter Mark Buehrle, who worked eight strong innings, allowing seven hits and one run, with a last-gasp win.

While Buehrle was giving his team every chance to win, the Toronto offence could get nothing going against Houston lefty Dallas Keuchel, who worked seven shutout innings for the Astros.
