(Newser) – Joe Inglett drove in the tie-breaking run with a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning, B.J. Ryan earned his first save in more than a year and the Toronto Blue Jays completed a three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers with a 5-4 victory Sunday. Ryan was activated before the game barely 11 months after undergoing elbow ligament replacement surgery.

With the game tied at 4, Frank Thomas was walked by Dustin Nippert (0-1) leading off the 10th, and after Marco Scutaro came in as a pinch-runner, Lyle Overbay also walked. Gregg Zaun's sacrifice moved the runners up, and Inglett's flyball to right scored Scutaro to give the Jays the lead. Toronto’s Jesse Carlson (1-0) earned his first major league victory.
