The Toronto Blue Jays are headed back north with a 2-0 lead in the American League Division Series after scoring a 5-3 win Friday over the Texas Rangers.

Four home runs off Rangers starter Yu Darvish helped Toronto build a 5-1 lead after five innings, then late clutch pitching from closer Roberto Osuna sealed the victory.

Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run homer in the second, and then Kevin Pillar, Ezequiel Carrera and Edwin Encarnacion launched solo shots in the fifth. Texas scored one in the fourth and two in the eighth but left 13 men on base including two each in the first four innings.

J.A. Happ allowed one run over five innings to pick up the win, with the Blue Jays using five relievers to finish the job. Osuna got the last five outs to get the save, allowing one hit and striking out two.

Game 3 is set for Sunday at 7:30 p.m., with Toronto looking for the sweep.
