Martin hits three-run HR, Blue Jays beat Orioles 10-9
TORONTO (AP) Russell Martin hit a three-run homer, Kevin Pillar had a solo shot and the Toronto Blue Jays used a five-run first inning to beat the Baltimore Orioles 10-9 on Sunday.
Edwin Encarnacion scored three runs and extended his streak of reaching base safely to nine plate appearances before grounding into a fielder's choice in the sixth as the Blue Jays took three of four from the AL East leaders.
Encarnacion hit three home runs in that span, including a game-ending blast Friday night.
The Blue Jays hit a season-high seven doubles, including four in the first inning.
Toronto has won eight of 10 at home and nine of 13 overall.
Adam Jones hit two of Baltimore five home runs, four of which came off Aaron Sanchez (6-1), but the Orioles lost their third straight after winning the previous five.
