Orioles' Davis blasts 50th dinger vs. Jays

  • Print

TORONTO -- Chris Davis hit his 50th home run of the season in the eighth inning to snap a 3-3 tie as the Baltimore Orioles rallied with five unanswered runs to defeat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 on Friday night.

The Orioles slugger flied out deep to centre in the first inning, struck out in the third and flied out to left in the sixth before slamming a pitch from reliever Steve Delabar over the centre-field fence to lead off the eighth for a 4-3 lead.

Baltimore added another run in the inning when Danny Valencia singled home Adam Jones.

The Orioles snapped a three-game losing streak, keeping their wild-card hopes alive while handing Toronto its fourth consecutive loss.

Baltimore also evened its 2013 record against the Jays to 7-7.

It was Davis' seventh home run against the Blue Jays this season -- and his 16th since the start of the 2012 season.
