Recap


Blue Jays 6, Orioles 5 (11): Maicer Izturis drew a bases-loaded walk in the 11th inning as visiting Toronto avoided a sweep.

Toronto loaded the bases with two outs against Orioles closer Jim Johnson (1-2), who promptly walked Izturis on four pitches to score J.P. Arencibia. The defeat ended Baltimore's streak of 17 straight extra-inning victories, four shy of the major-league record set in 1960 by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Esmil Rogers (1-1) earned the victory after working his way out of trouble in the 10th, while Casey Janssen pitched a perfect 11th for his sixth save. Arencibia led the Jays' attack with three hits, including a two-run homer.

With Toronto trailing 1-0 in the third inning, Arencibia drove a low fastball into the center-field seats for his American League-leading eighth home run of the year. Rajai Davis extended the advantage in the third with a blast that barely cleared the left-field wall, Edwin Encarnacion added a solo shot to left-center in the fourth and Jose Bautista got in on the action in the sixth, drilling a line-drive homer to left.

The Orioles stormed back to tie it in the seventh on a Ryan Flaherty RBI double to the gap in right-center, a Nate McLouth run-scoring single and a Manny Machado triple to right-center.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Baltimore starter Josh Stinson, recalled from the minors earlier in the day, allowed five runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings in his second major-league start. Toronto counterpart Brandon Morrow was charged with four runs (three earned) on three hits over 6 1/3 frames. ... Blue Jays manager John Gibbons was ejected by home plate umpire Mike DiMuro in the ninth inning for arguing balls and strikes. ... Baltimore nearly won the game in the 10th, but LF Davis threw out Machado at home plate to end the inning.
