TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays clubbed five homers, and knuckleballer R.A. Dickey turned in his fourth consecutive quality start in a 12-6 blowout of the Philadelphia Phillies at Rogers Centre on Thursday.
Toronto, which swept four games against Philadelphia this week, earned its season-best fifth consecutive win, its longest streak since winning 11 straight in June 2013. The five home runs upped the club's American League-leading total to 49.
First baseman Edwin Encanarcion hit two homers and went back-to-back with third baseman Juan Francisco as part of a three-run seventh inning. It was the first time the Blue Jays (18-17) hit back-to-back homers this season.
Francisco finished 3-for-3 with a walk.
Designated hitter Adam Lind and center fielder Colby Rasmus also went deep to help the Blue Jays beat the Phillies for the eighth consecutive time.
Dickey (3-3) threw 6 1/3 innings of three-run ball and struck out a season-high eight batters as the Blue Jays earned a second straight win at Rogers Centre after sweeping a two-game set at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
In the four games, the Blue Jays outscored the Phillies 31-11 and plated 18 runs against Philadelphia's top three pitchers, left-handers Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels and right-hander A.J. Burnett.
Burnett (2-2) got the ball for Thursday's series finale and surrendered seven runs (six earned) on a season-high nine hits. He entered the outing with a 0.98 ERA over his previous four starts, but Toronto hit the former Blue Jay early and often and chased him after six innings.
Toronto outfielder Jose Bautista drove in two runs and has reached base safely in his 35th consecutive games thanks to a two-out single in the seventh.
The Phillies (15-18) opened the scoring in the second when right fielder Marlon Byrd led off the inning with a single, advanced to second on a wild pitch by Dickey and came home on an opposite-field double by left fielder Domonic Brown.
Toronto did not wait long to respond, erupting for three runs against Burnett in the bottom half of the inning to take a 3-1 advantage.
Encarnacion clubbed a mammoth homer, his fifth of the season and 200th of his career, to begin the inning. Toronto tacked on an additional run with an RBI groundout off the bat of Lind to take a 2-1 lead. Rasmus followed Lind by hitting his ninth homer of the year to put Toronto in front 3-1.
The Blue Jays continued to have success against Burnett in the third and took a 4-1 lead on a sacrifice fly from Bautista.
Dickey retired eight straight after the second-inning double to Brown before loading the bases with two outs in the fourth, but Philadelphia was unable to capitalize. Shortstop Freddy Galvis grounded out to first base to end the threat.
The Phillies cut the lead in half in the fifth, scoring a run on a hard-hit single from shortstop Jimmy Rollins to make it 4-2.
Bautista gave Toronto another three-run lead with an RBI groundout in the bottom of the fifth, making it 5-2.
