TORONTO (AP) - Danny Salazar is still waiting to celebrate his first win away from home.

Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs, Juan Francisco also connected and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Salazar and the Cleveland Indians 4-2 Thursday night to give manager John Gibbons his 400th career victory.

Starting with two extra days of rest, Salazar (1-4) allowed two runs and five hits in four innings, his second shortest outing of the season. He walked two and struck out three.

The second-year right-hander is 0-6 with a 4.28 ERA in 10 career road starts.

“Today my pitches just weren’t working,” Salazar said. “I just didn’t have a good feeling for the ball today to command my fastball, and my changeup wasn’t there.”

The Blue Jays made things rough on Salazar by driving up his pitch count.

“A lot of deep counts,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “He had to work for everything,”

Encarnacion hit a solo homer off Salazar in the second and added a two-run blast in the fifth off C.C. Lee. It was his second multihomer game of the season and the 13th of his career.

“He’s one of the top sluggers in the game,” Gibbons said.

Encarnacion finished 3 for 4, adding a double in the third. His only out was a hard liner right at third baseman Carlos Santana to open the seventh.

Two batters after Encarnacion’s homer in the second, Francisco also went deep off Salazar (1-4), who lost for the fourth time in seven starts.

David Murphy homered for the Indians, whose streak of series victories was snapped at three.

Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ allowed one run and six hits in a season-high six innings. Happ (2-1) walked two and struck out four.

“His fastball was really getting on guys,” Cleveland outfielder Ryan Raburn said. “I know it’s 92, 93 (mph), but out of his hand it just seemed a lot harder. And he spotted his pitches.”

The Indians dropped to 4-10 when facing a left-handed starter, including an 0-8 mark on the road.
