Ellis has 5 RBIs, Dodgers rout Blue Jays 14-5 to claim first place

TORONTO (AP) - A.J. Ellis hit a two-run homer and drove in a career-best five runs, Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched 5 1-3 innings, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 14-5 on Monday night, their fourth straight victory and 21st in 26 games.

Skip Schumaker added a three-run shot as the Dodgers moved a season-high four games above .500 and won their eighth straight road game, their longest streak since a nine-game run in July 2004.

Ellis went deep in the second inning and had RBI singles in the third, sixth and seventh. He also reached on first baseman Adam Lind's fielding error in the fourth.

Toronto made a season-high five errors and lost its fifth straight game. The Blue Jays have lost 12 of 16 overall.

The Dodgers climbed into first place by half a game after Arizona fell 4-2 at home to the Chicago Cubs.
