J.P. Arencibia and the Toronto Blue Jays are trying to slug their way to another four-game winning streak.
Brandon Morrow would appreciate another offensive barrage and surely wouldn't mind avoiding the New York Mets' top threat.
Arencibia and Morrow will try to help the Blue Jays match their longest win streak of the season Saturday against the Mets, who could be without David Wright.
Toronto (22-18) is hitting .311 with 11 homers and 26 runs during its three-game winning streak, putting it one victory from its third four-game run of 2012.
The Blue Jays' bats showed few signs of slowing Friday, collecting 12 hits - including a season-high five homers - in a 14-5 victory over New Yo...

TORONTO -- Catcher J.P. Arencibia says he doesn't worry about his batting average. What he wants to do is drive in runs.
