Toronto extends winning streak to four games — Blue Jays notebook

Toronto extends winning streak to four games — Blue Jays notebook”

"It's a loss, and they're hard anytime", Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said.

Tim Beckham homered for the Orioles, who began the day 3 1/2 games behind Minnesota for the second AL wild card berth. Baltimore has lost three straight one-run decisions and is 20-18 in such games.

The winning rally came against Orioles closer Zach Britton (2-1), who entered the game to get the final out of the eighth.

"That just puts you in a bind right away", Britton said. Darwin Barney raced around from second and slid home safely ahead of the throw from Adam Jones. "I just kind of let the inning get away from me, which is pretty frustrating".

Toronto has won four straight for the first time since July 24 to 27. Urena getting the big walk-off hit, he's playing great.

"Overall I'm putting more A-swings on the ball", Maile said of his approach at the plate. But the Baltimore right-hander struck out Jose Bautista and Kendrys Morales, then got a pop fly from Pillar to end the inning.

The 30-year-old backstop is slashing.293/.330/.505 with a.835 OPS this season (85 games) while hitting 19 home runs, 49 RBI, and 41 runs scored across 330 plate appearances. "They just hit a few balls where we couldn't catch them".

The Blue Jays had leadoff hits in each of the first three innings but did not capitalize until the third. Maile singled and scored on a two-out double by Smoak on a drive that eluded the leap at the wall by right fielder Joey Rickard. Maile singled to third to tie the score at 2, and Urena hit the winning single. Josh Donaldson walked and Justin Smoak singled.

Joe Biagini would be a shoo-in to land a regular gig in the Toronto Blue Jays' starting rotation as long as the Baltimore Orioles are providing the opposition. At the time, manager John Gibbons hoped to use Sanchez out of the bullpen when he returned to Toronto's lineup but, with the Blue Jays out of the playoff picture, the team has settled on a more cautious path. "Good for him, he needed that".

Dylan Bundy started for Baltimore, allowing a run and five hits over six solid innings. In the seventh inning Trey Mancini doubled and then came around to tie the game when Mark Trumbo lifted a liner into shallow centre. Beckham homered off Biagini in the eighth, but the Orioles couldn't hold on.
