Recap


Blue Jays 4, Orioles 1: Edwin Encarnacion belted his 17th homer to match last season's total and Brandon Morrow struck out eight before exiting with a leg injury as host Toronto capped a three-game sweep of struggling Baltimore.

Rajai Davis, Brett Lawrie and Colby Rasmus launched solo homers in successive innings for the Blue Jays, who posted their seventh win in eight outings at the Rogers Centre.

Adam Jones went 0-for-2 to see his career-high 20-game hitting streak come to an end for the Orioles, who have dropped a season-high five in a row.

After rookie Ryan Flaherty's RBI single gave Baltimore a 1-0 lead in the second inning, Encarnacion leveled the contest with his fourth homer in seven games.

Toronto pulled away with its power display while Morrow (6-3) held the Orioles at bay. The right-hander allowed one run on four hits in 6 1/3 solid innings before exiting after he was hit by a line drive from Wilson Betemit.

X-rays revealed a right shin contusion. Morrow is listed as day-to-day.

Carlos Villanueva and Francisco Cordero bridged the gap to Casey Janssen, who retired the side in the ninth inning for his fifth save.

Jason Hammel (6-2) permitted four runs on nine hits and yielded five walks in 6 2/3 innings. He fell to 4-1 in his career against the Blue Jays.
