Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Jose Bautista smacked a tie-breaking two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to send the streaking Toronto Blue Jays past the Baltimore Orioles, 4-2, Saturday in the second of a three-game series at Rogers Centre.
Baltimore starter Miguel Gonzalez (5-3) lasted 7 1/3 innings and was relieved by Darren O'Day in the eighth with one out and a runner on first. After Rajai Davis grounded into a fielder's choice, Bautista drew a full count offering and smacked a lined shot that landed just over the left field wall.
Darren Oliver (3-1) earned the win despite allowing Taylor Teagarden to tie the game at 2-2 in the top of the eighth with a solo shot. Casey Janssen tossed a 1-2-3 ninth to record his 17th save of the season and help the Blue Jays extended their winning streak to 10 games.
Toronto only managed four hits, with Maicer Izturis also connecting on a solo shot. Starter Chien-Ming Wang pitched well, allowing just one run over 6 1/3 frames.
Gonzalez was tagged for three runs on three hits and three walks, while Travis Ishikawa drove in one for the Orioles, who dropped the first two games of the series.
