Jays' Happ, Royals' Vargas square off in rubber match

TORONTO -- Something must give when left-handers J.A. Happ and Jason Vargas oppose each other Thursday.

It will be the rubber match of a three-game series at the Rogers Centre after the Kansas City Royals trounced the Toronto Blue Jays 15-5 on Wednesday to gain a split of the first two games.

Happ (9-10, 3.76 ERA) has won three starts in a row and has not lost since Aug. 25, a span of four starts.
