TORONTO - Back in the heyday of the Edmonton Oilers they used to say it was worth the price of admission just to watch Paul Coffey skate.

For the rest of this season and years to come, Toronto Blue Jays fans may be saying they’d pay just to watch Anthony Gose and Jose Reyes run.

Well, both Gose and Reyes were running Saturday afternoon and when they did excitement rode with them.

Gose and Reyes were circling the bases like Indians used to circle wagons in old-time western flicks and the two combined to score four runs in the Jays’ 5-2 victory Saturday afternoon over the Oakland A’s to clinch yet another series.

The victory was the fifth in a row for the streaking Jays, who have won 10 of their last 12 games.

The lid was open at Rogers Centre for the first time this season and the sun poured in and shined brilliantly on both Gose and Reyes as well as Jays starter R.A. Dickey.

On Friday, Dickey said the prospect of pitching with the roof open wouldn’t bother him at all.
