First-inning runs sink Toronto — Blue Jays notebook”

Following 4-3 and 3-2 victories for the Jays to open the series, Wednesday night saw the Orioles take the final contest of the three-game set at Rogers Centre by a 2-1 score line. Countering for the Orioles (71-74) will be Kevin Gausman.

Starter Marcus Stroman lasted six innings for the Jays, and was near-perfect for five of them.

Gausman (11-10) allowed one run and six hits, improving to 3-0 with a 1.51 ERA in six starts against the Blue Jays this season, as the Orioles won for the first time since September 5 against the Yankees.

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Kevin Gausman (39) works against the Toronto Blue Jays during the first inning of a baseball game, Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017 in Toronto.

Baltimore's Darren O'Day tossed a flawless eighth inning with two strikeouts, and Zach Britton overcame a single in the ninth to earn his 14th save of the season.

"Once we scored those two runs, I told myself, 'Hey those are your runs". Stroman has not won since August 16, a span of five starts.

Baltimore's Tim Beckham began the game by reaching on third baseman Josh Donaldson's throwing error. Urena then stepped up to the plate and knocked a double into left field, cashing in Hernandez to give the Jays life.

Toronto halved the deficit in the third when Hernandez hit a leadoff double and scored on Richard Urena's bloop double to shallow left. Seth Smith struck out and Caleb Joseph grounded into a double play. Pearce has not played since leaving Friday's game after one at bat. Baltimore LHP Andrew Faulkner cleared waivers Wednesday and was assigned outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

The defeat also snapped Toronto's four-game winning streak, knocking the Jays back down to ten games under.500 at 68-78. He had a 5.85 ERA in the first half and owns a 3.43 mark in the second half. Sep. Baltimore LHP Wade Miley (8-12, 4.96) will oppose New York RHP Masahiro Tanaka (11-11, 4.82) Thursday in the opener of four-game series at Yankee Stadium.
