Buehrle has solid outing in Blue Jays' loss

--

TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays' pitching is finally clicking -- just as their hitting is misfiring.

Mark Buehrle worked 7 1/3 innings with five hits and four strikeouts as Toronto lost to the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Saturday afternoon.

"Early in the season pitching wasn't doing good and hitting was there," said Buehrle (5-4) in the Blue Jays' clubhouse after the game. "Now pitching's there and hitting's not doing so well.

"It's a long season we got to try to get the pitching and offence going at the same time."

Toronto has 11 losses in its last 14 games. Six of those defeats were by two runs or fewer. The Blue Jays had an 11-12 record in April but are 8-14 so far in May.

Despite its recent struggles, Toronto is only 5 1/2 games back of the first-place Tampa Bay Rays in the American League East.

"A lot of one-run games that we're not coming through on top," said Buehrle. "We just got to keep battling. Put your head down. It's a long season and it's only coming up on two months into the season and we've got a lot left.

"We've been playing pretty bad and we're not too far out of it. That's the one thing we can look at and have some hope on."

Edwin Encarnacion and Chris Colabello provided the offence for Toronto (19-26). Encarnacion earned an RBI with a sacrifice fly in the first, while Colabello had a solo home run in the fourth.

"I think all losing's frustrating," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "I don't know if it's any more frustrating (to lose a one-run game). You feel you're right there, a big hit or a bit out away, from a difference in the game.

"Losing's losing. It's never easy. You just got to move on, as cliche as that might sound, that's just a fact. The baseball game doesn't let up, either way you're back at it the next day. …
