J.P. Arencibia hit two solo homers, Edwin Encarnacion added a three-run shot and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Cleveland Indians 10-8 on Thursday night, avoiding their first 0-3 start since 2004.
Jose Bautista hit a two-run homer and Colby Rasmus also connected as the Blue Jays went deep five times.
Arencibia had three hits with two RBIs. He had a second-deck drive to center in the second and a tiebreaking shot to left in the sixth, his seventh career multihomer game.
Carlos Santana and Mark Reynolds replied with solo homers for the Indians, who were trying to start a season with three straight road wins for the first time since 1998.
Steve Delabar (1-0) got two outs for the win and Casey Janssen finished in the ninth for his first save.
Consecutive doubles by Jason Kipnis and Nick Swisher gave the Indians a 1-0 lead in the first, but Toronto answered in the bottom half when Bautista drilled a two-run homer to left, his second in two days.
