Recap


Blue Jays 6, Orioles 2: Kelly Johnson and Edwin Encarnacion belted two-run homers to back seven scoreless innings innings from rookie Drew Hutchison as host Toronto snapped a five-game losing streak.

Hutchison (4-2) struck out a season-high nine batters and allowed only three hits in his longest outing as the Blue Jays handed Baltimore its third straight defeat.

Johnson, returning after missing two games with an ailing hamstring, had three RBIs and three extra-base hits, including his two-run blast in the fourth that ended the night for Orioles starter Tommy Hunter.

Encarnacion clubbed his 16th homer in the third inning - the third time he's gone deep in five games - and has seven RBIs in his seven-game hitting streak.

Hunter (2-3) had his shortest outing of the season, getting rocked for six runs on nine hits in three-plus innings to extend his winless streak to six starts.

Adam Jones ran his hitting streak to 19 games - the longest in the majors - with a ninth-inning single as the Orioles rallied from two runs against Francisco Cordero before closer Casey Janssen came on to get the last two outs for his fourth save.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Colby Rasmus drove in Toronto's first run and had a pair of hits to extend his hitting streak to five games. ... The Orioles activated IF Mark Reynolds from the 15-day disabled list. He had missed 16 games with a strained muscle in his left side. Reliever Stu Pomeranz went on the DL after an MRI exam revealed a tear in his oblique. He was injured while warming up Sunday. ... Toronto avoided losing six straight games for the first time since May 2009 and beat Baltimore for the 31st time in the last 38 meetings at Rogers Centre. ... Hunter is 0-2 in six starts since beating Toronto on April 24.
