Davis Goes 5 For 5 In Blue Jays Win Over Orioles

View Comments

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — Toronto’s Rajai Davis went 5 for 5 and scored three times, and Yunel Escobar hit a two-run double in a four-run seventh inning that carried the Blue Jays to a 9-5 victory Sunday over the Baltimore Orioles.

Davis had two singles, two doubles and a triple. Escobar also hit a two-run homer as the Blue Jays amassed 20 hits.

Ricky Romero, Toronto’s opening day starter, gave up five runs in 5 1/3 innings. Jeremy Guthrie, the Orioles’ No. 1 starter, was tagged for four runs on 12 hits in five innings. But while Guthrie faced Toronto’s likely regular-season lineup, Baltimore’s batting order had no projected starters.

Nick Green chased Romero with a two-run homer in the Orioles’ four-run sixth inning.
