Edwin Encarnacion homered and drove in four runs, Josh Johnson earned his first win of the season, and the Blue Jays matched a team record by winning their 11th straight game Sunday, finishing a three-game sweep of Baltimore with a 13-5 win in Toronto.

The Blue Jays, who also won 11 straight in 1987 and 1998, have not lost since a 10-6 defeat at the Chicago White Sox on June 10.

‘‘I've been waiting for this since the season started,’’ Encarnacion said. ‘‘I believe in this team so I knew things had to change, things had to become good for us. That’s the way right now and we enjoy it, enjoy the moment. I'm not surprised by this. I know this team is good and I know we can do it.’’

Ryan Flaherty hit two homers but Baltimore lost for the fifth time in eight games and allowed a season-high in runs.
