Blue Jays collapse in 8th for doubleheader sweep

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) What started as a bad day for the Toronto Blue Jays turned into a record-breaking disaster by night's end.

Minnesota scored three straight runs on wild pitches by the Toronto's Sergio Santos in the eighth inning, when the Twins walked eight times off three relievers in rallying for a 9-5 victory and a sweep of Thursday's day-night doubleheader.

R.A. Dickey (1-3) allowed five runs as Minnesota won the opener 7-0. The Twins trailed 5-1 in the fifth of the night game before the Blue Jays' pitching staff fell apart.
