Your basic Blue Jays offense (update....Bautista again)

Now that’s the typical Toronto offense, or at least their 2010 version.

They have two hits off Chris Tillman tonight, the Orioles have seven hits, but the Jays have a 3-1 lead on the O’s in the last of the fifth at Rogers Centre.

Jose Bautista, who hit a solo homer in the first last night, did so again tonight on a 2-1 pitch from Tillman. It was his Major League leading 51st homer of the year. He has hit 32 at home and 27 since the All-Star break.

Vernon Wells hit a two-run shot, his 30th, in the fourth to snap a 1-1 tie.

Toronto has hit 236 on the year to lead the Majors and 135 at home. The Jays have now homered at home in 12 straight games with a total of 25 in that stretch.

The O’s scored on Brandon Snyder’s RBI double in the second.

Update: Now the Blue Jays have five runs on four hits as Bautista hit his second homer of the game, a two-run blast in the sixth for a 5-1 lead. That’s a two-homer game for Bautista. Meanwhile, the O’s have left nine on the bases in six innings.
