Happ reached a career high in wins.Happ and three relievers combined on a one-hitter, Edwin Encarnacion hit a solo home run and the Blue Jays beat the Seattle Mariners 2-0 on Sunday, avoiding a three-game sweep.Happ (13-3) won his seventh straight decision and surpassed the 12 wins he had for Philadelphia in 2009.All over baseball there probably hasnt been a more consistent starter, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. Hes a better pitcher than hes ever been. Hes having a tremendous season.Happ allowed Seattles lone hit, a single by Leonys Martin in the third. The left-hander matched a season-high with four walks and struck out six.I wasnt the best with strike one today, but I stayed in there, Happ said. As the game went on I got a little better getting ahead of guys, definitely.Brett Cecil worked the seventh, Jason Grilli pitched the eighth and Roberto Osuna finished for his 20th save.The shutout was Torontos sixth.

On Sunday, they matched their season low.Happ walked Chris Iannetta to begin the fourth and then hit Robinson Cano, but he escaped the jam by striking out Nelson Cruz and Dae-Ho Lee, then getting Kyle Seager to foul out.That was the inning that really got him right where he needed to be, Thole said.Encarnacion opened the scoring with a two-out drive to center in the fourth, his 27th. It was his 224th home run with the Blue Jays, breaking a tie with Vernon Wells and giving him sole possession of third place on Torontos all-time list.

The Mariners are 15-7 against the East.STOREN SENT PACKINGBefore the game, the Blue Jays designated struggling relief pitcher Drew Storen for assignment and recalled right-hander Ryan Tepera from Triple-A Buffalo.
