Hanging around the American League playoff race, the O's were desperate to avoid a doubleheader vs. the Jays on Sunday given that they open a crucial three-game series vs. the Yankees on Monday afternoon.

Barney has also stretched the arms in a cause winning.

The Blue Jays played without Gibbons, who left to tend to personal business, according to the team.

Machado led off the 13th with an infield hit off Aaron Loup (2-3) and Schoop followed with a liner to right-centre that put an end to a game that lasted 4 hours, 22 minutes. The young catcher came into the game along with Ryan Flaherty at third and Joey Rickard in center with the Orioles trailing by six runs. "He's a good young prospect for them, but those type of guys - even though he's a crossfire guy - you can talk about it all you want and look at film and everything, but it's a different look in the box and by the time you start to make an adjustment, he's out of there".

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman was pulled from the game after being hit by a line drive off the bat of Baltimore Orioles' slugger Mark Trumbo. "I guess 2 1/2 more games than Minnesota", Smith said.

Until Thursday's 11-8 loss to Toronto in the series opener, the Orioles had won seven in a row to jump into serious contention.

Right fielder Seth Smith's eighth-inning home run and Trumbo's ninth-inning RBI single accounted for the Orioles runs. "That's really all it comes down to. There is no other way to say it".

Orioles: Chris Tillman (1-7, 7.91 ERA) seeks his first win in 17 starts since May 7.

Tillman (1-7, 7.91 ERA) has gotten two no-decisions since being reinstated in the starting rotation on August 19.

It was just the third win in the past 10 road games for the Jays, who have taken two of three from the Orioles and can secure a series win in the Sunday matinee finale.

"We need our starting pitcher to pitch well to give us a chance to win", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Brad Brach came on to pitch a scoreless seventh, preserving a string of 132/3 scoreless innings by Gausman, who gave up just four hits over 72/3 innings in a terrific performance against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park in his previous start. He struck out eight and was pulled after his only walk of the game.

It appears as if Stroman avoided significant injury, though. In what was his 28th start of the 2017 season, he lowered his ERA down to 3.08.

Blue Jays: Selected the contract of Santos from Triple-A Buffalo and designated RHP Nick Tepesch for assignment.
