Orioles rally late to down Blue Jays in extra innings | CBC Sports

Austin Hays drove in two runs to cap an eighth-inning rally, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-5 in 10 innings Friday night to snap a 20-game road losing streak.

Baltimore’s road skid was tied for the second-longest in AL history, trailing only the 22 losses in a row by the 1943 Philadelphia Athletics. The last-place Orioles won for the second time in 16 games and improved to 24-52, including 12-26 away from home.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit his major league-leading 25th home run for Toronto.

Paul Fry (1-2) retired the side in the ninth inning, and Cole Sulser pitched a scoreless 10th for his second save.

The Orioles took their first lead in the 10th inning after Toronto’s Trent Thornton (1-3) walked three batters to force in Trey Mancini, who started the inning as the automatic runner under pandemic rules.

Marcus Semien hit a two-run double for the Blue Jays, who had won five straight.
