4 Toronto pitchers combine for 3-0 win over Braves

ATLANTA (AP) - Melky Cabrera had three hits, including a two-run single, and four Toronto pitchers combined on a four-hitter to lead the Blue Jays past the Atlanta Braves, 3-0 on Wednesday night.

Last-place Toronto went with a pitcher-by-committee approach to fill a hole in the rotation. Esmil Rogers lasted 3 1-3 innings in his first start since 2011, and two pitchers just up from the minors shut down the Braves. Juan Perez (1-0) went 2 2-3 innings and Neil Wagner got through the seventh and eighth before Casey Janssen earned his 11th save.

Meanwhile, Atlanta starter Kris Medlen (1-6) took a liner off the left leg in the second and didn't return the next inning because of a contusion to his upper calf. He is expected to make his next start.
