I'm not getting the job done." Jackson (0-4) lasted 3 1/3 innings, allowing five hits, six runs — two of them earned — and two walks.

Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez exited the game with a left wrist sprain before the seventh inning. He had slammed into the centre-field wall trying to make a play earlier in the night and the team said X-rays were negative.
