Jose Bautista used his bat and his glove to keep the Blue Jays in the wild-card race for at least one more day. Bautista homered and reached base four times, J.A. Happ won for the first time in four starts and the Toronto Blue Jays dealt a blow to Seattle's playoff hopes, routing the Mariners 14-4 Monday night. ''He's definitely one of the best hitters in baseball and he's one of the best defenders in baseball,'' manager John Gibbons said of Bautista. Bautista went 3 for 3 with a walk and drove in two runs before getting the rest of the night off.
