CLEVELAND (AP) Edwin Encarnacion homered, Roberto Osuna bounced back from a nightmarish outing to record the save and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Cleveland Indians 6-5 on Saturday night.

The Blue Jays were stunned Friday night on Tyler Naquin's game-ending inside-the-park home run off Osuna that gave the Indians a 3-2 win.

The latest matchup between division leaders also had plenty of drama, with Osuna getting his 28th save by retiring Naquin on a groundout to end it.

Toronto built a 5-0 lead, but then Cleveland scored five times in the fourth.

Encarnacion's leadoff homer in the fifth, his 35th of the season, put Toronto back on top.

Joe Biagini (4-2) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. Josh Tomlin (11-7) allowed all six Toronto runs.
