DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Mark Buehrle gave up four runs and eight hits over four innings in the Toronto Blue Jays' 10-6 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday.

Brandon Barnes hit his fourth exhibition homer, a two-run shot during a four-run third off Buehrle. Houston opened the inning with five consecutive hits.

Buehrle is part of a revamped Blue Jays rotation that includes other offseason acquisitions R.A. Dickey and Josh Johnson.

Melky Cabrera hit a first-inning solo homer off Jordan Lyles, who allowed six runs and 10 hits over 3 2/3 innings. The right-hander has struggled as he attempts to keep his rotation spot, giving up 24 runs in 11 2/3 innings overall.
