Blue Jays lose Shoemaker to knee injury, beat Athletics 10-1

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Toronto pitcher Matt Shoemaker injured his left knee in a rundown chase, and the Blue Jays went on to beat the Oakland Athletics 10-1 Saturday.

Rowdy Tellez and Brandon Drury hit back-to-back homers during a five-run fourth inning. Justin Smoak also homered and shortstop Freddy Galvis made an over-the-shoulder, barehanded catch as the Blue Jays won for the fifth time in six games on their road trip.

Shoemaker, sidelined in recent years by a series of injuries, was hurt while chasing Oakland's Matt Chapman in the third inning. The 32-year-old starter applied the tag and spun around to avoid contact. As he twirled, Shoemaker appeared to injure his knee.
