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.
