(Newser) – Grady Sizemore homered twice and drove in five runs, Aaron Laffey pitched seven sharp innings and the Cleveland Indians routed Toronto 12-0 Saturday night to hand the Blue Jays their fourth straight loss. Sizemore had three hits, including a leadoff homer to start a six-run first inning against Dustin McGowan (2-3). Sizemore added a three-run shot in the fifth.

Both came on 3-2 pitches and gave Sizemore his second career multihomer game. Laffey (1-2) made his third strong start since being recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on April 28. The left-hander allowed six hits, struck out two and walked one. Before the game, Toronto learned outfielder Vernon Wells is expected to miss six to eight weeks with a broken left wrist.
