Starter Brian Tallet was injured on a comebacker in the second inning. (AP)
Jays relievers stepped up after Brian Tallet's shortened start until Scott Downs allowed a game-tying homer in the eighth, and Jason Frasor allowed the walk-off run in the ninth. Tallet left with a right foot contusion in the third, and Downs exited with a right hamstring strain.
