Reimold’s Homer Lifts Orioles Over Blue Jays 6-4
TORONTO (AP) — Nolan Reimold hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the ninth inning and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-4 on Saturday.
Wilson Betemit tied it with a home run in the eighth and Chris Davis also went deep for the Orioles, who won their second straight game at Rogers Centre. Coming into the series, Baltimore was 5-29 in Toronto dating to 2008.
Kelly Johnson homered for the Blue Jays, but their bullpen blew another late lead.
Betemit tied it at 4 with a solo shot to right off Casey Janssen in the eighth. Reimold hit a towering drive to left off Francisco Cordero (0-1), his second homer of the season and second ninth-inning shot in two days.
