CLEVELAND (AP) - Jose Bautista hit a two-run double to help the Toronto Blue Jays defeat the Cleveland Indians 7-1 on Sunday and head to the All-Star break with a three-game winning streak. Brett Cecil (2-4) gave up one unearned run over six innings for his first win in three starts since being recalled from the minors June 30. The left-hander allowed six hits and walked three. He struck out six, got out of a bases-loaded jam in the first inning, and stranded nine runners overall. Eric Thames' two-run homer in a five-run third off Carlos Carrasco (8-6) put the Blue Jays ahead. Toronto moved within two games of .500 and have Bautista going to the All-Star Game as baseball's home run leader with 31 - along with 65 RBIs and a .334 average.
