Ramsus hits grand slam, Blue Jays beat Pirates

Win prevented Pittsburgh from getting first sweep of the season

PITTSBURGH - Colby Rasmus hit a grand slam and Melky Cabrera added a two-run homer, leading Dustin McGowan and the Toronto Blue Jays over the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-2 Sunday.

McGowan (2-1) pitched three-hit ball for seven innings, allowing one run and striking out five.
