MONTREAL (AP) -- Melky Cabrera's two-run homer in the eighth inning gave the Toronto Blue Jays a 2-0 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday and a sweep of their two-game exhibition series at an Olympic Stadium packed with former Montreal Expos fans.

Moises Sierra was on third with two outs when Cabrera connected off left-hander Adam Kolarek.

Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow pitched six sharp innings, allowing two hits and striking out eight in the spring training finale for both teams.

Mets right-hander Daisuke Matsusaka also struck out eight and gave up five hits in five scoreless innings.

Toronto beat the Mets 5-4 before a crowd of 46,121 on Friday night. The games were organized in an effort to show that Montreal wants Major League Baseball back. A total of 96,350 fans attended the two games, mostly chanting ''Let's go Expos!'' and ''We want baseball!''
