New York Mets starting pitcher Seth Lugo, left, jumps off the base after forcing out Toronto Blue Jays' Travis Shaw at third during the fourth inning of a baseball game in Buffalo, N.Y., Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020. The call was upheld after a Toronto challenge.

The Associated Press

Robbie Ray struck out five in five innings, Jonathan Villar had two hits, two stolen bases and an RBI and the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the visiting New York Mets 3-2 Saturday night at Buffalo.

Travis Shaw and Randal Grichuk also had RBIs for the Blue Jays (25-20). Amed Rosario had three hits for the Mets (21-25) but was picked off first for the final out of the game after reaching base on a wild pitch after he struck out.

The teams have split the first two games of a three-game series.

The Blue Jays took a 2-1 lead in the fifth after loading the bases with no outs. Catcher Alejandro Kirk, making his major league debut, led off with a walk. Joe Panik and Biggio singled and Shaw hit a sacrifice fly.
