After Friday fiasco, Reds beat Jays

CINCINNATI (AP) - Jay Bruce's homer helped the Reds get ahead 8-0 for the second day in a row, and Mike Leake made this big lead stand up, pitching eight innings on Saturday for an 11-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.
    
A day earlier, the Blue Jays pulled off the second-biggest comeback in their history. Down 8-0 after the second inning, they rallied to a 14-9 victory behind a pair of homers from Edwin Encarnacion.
    
The Reds got ahead 8-0 after four innings on Saturday against J.A. Happ (6-4), and the Brewers didn't have another big comeback in them. Leake (5-6) had a lot to do with it, allowing the Blue Jays only four hits, including Colby Rasmus' homer.
    
The Blue Jays are 9-5 all-time against the Reds, having won their four previous interleague series.
