Auburn native Tim Locastro's speed was on display north of the border Saturday afternoon. 

Locastro went 2-for-5 at the plate, with both hits coming on infield singles. He also scored a run in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 6-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. 

In the third inning, Locastro reached first on an infield single. He scored on an RBI double by Diamondbacks left fielder David Peralta. 

Locastro reached base again in the ninth inning. He hit what appeared to be a routine ground ball to third. But he sprinted out of the batter's box and beat Blue Jays third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr.'s throw to first. 

The multi-hit game — the fourth of Locastro's career — snaps a brief slump. Entering Saturday's game, he was 0-for-10 in his last four games. His batting average dropped from .289 to .236 in that span. 

With a two-hit game, Locastro's batting average is up to .250 this season. 

The Diamondbacks go for the sweep against the Blue Jays Sunday. First pitch is scheduled for 1:07 p.m.
