Blue Jays update

Toronto has taken control of the American League East, holding a 3 1/2 -game lead over the Yankees. The Blue Jays have won nine of their past 11 games and continue to get enormous offensive production out of early MVP candidate Carlos Delgado. They also have an early Cy Young Award candidate in Wells, the majors' first 13-game winner. Wells hasn't issued a walk in nine of 17 starts. Unlike the Orioles, Toronto has been sturdy on the road, with a 22-17 record that ranks as the division's best. The Orioles were swept in a three-game series in Toronto last month, continuing their run of futility in Canada. They haven't been back to .500 since slipping to 16-17 on May 10, when the Blue Jays jumped Scott Erickson for seven runs and 12 hits in 2 2/3 innings. Mussina had given up five earned runs and 12 hits in seven innings the previous night, losing, 6-4, to Wells. Raul Mondesi homered twice off Mussina, and Delgado and Darrin Fletcher also took him deep. Escobar defeated Johnson in the first game, 6-5.
