Ernie Clement homered for the second straight night and the Toronto Blue Jays bombed All-Star Logan Webb en route to a 10-6 victory over the host San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night.

Clement’s homer, his sixth of the season, was a three-run shot in the fifth inning that gave the Blue Jays a 3-2 lead.

George Springer doubled twice and drove in three runs for Toronto, which won for the third time in four games.

Giants vs. Blue Jays recap

Michael Conforto’s second RBI hit of the night drew the Giants even in the bottom of the fifth inning before Toronto knocked out Webb (7-7) and blew the game open with a six-run sixth.

Four consecutive inning-opening hits, including RBI singles by Justin Turner and Davis Schneider, ended Webb’s night.

Alejandro Kirk and Clement greeted reliever Sean Hjelle with run-scoring singles, and when Springer’s one-out double drove in Kirk and Kevin Kiermaier, all of the sudden the visitors had run off to a 9-3 lead.

Webb was charged with a season-high seven runs on eight hits in his five-plus innings. He walked one and struck out four.

The Giants closed within 9-4 on a Heliot Ramos RBI single in the bottom of the sixth, but Zach Pop got Matt Chapman to pop out with the bases loaded to short-circuit the rally.

The Giants didn’t score again until the ninth, when Patrick Bailey (seventh) and Matt Chapman (13th) hit back-to-back solo homers.

Toronto starter Chris Bassitt (8-7) allowed three runs and five hits in five innings. He walked four and struck out six.

Clement finished 3-for-4 with a career-best four RBIs and two runs for the Blue Jays, who successfully rebounded from a 4-3, walk-off loss in the series opener on Tuesday.

Kirk collected three hits and scored twice, Schneider chipped in with two hits and two runs, and Leo Jimenez also had two hits for Toronto.

Jimenez was subbing at shortstop for Bo Bichette, who was pulled from the game in the fourth inning because of soreness in his right calf.

Bailey had two hits and scored three times for the Giants, who fell to 1-3 in their past four games. LaMonte Wade Jr. joined Bailey and Conforto with two hits each.
