Blue Jays Clinch Series Against Orioles
via: Blue Jays. 

For the second time in the four-game series, the Orioles blew a late lead as the Blue Jays walked off at Buffalo, this time for a 6-5 win in the 9th inning.

In Game 1 of the series, Randal Grichuk hit a two-run homer with two outs in the 10th. inning, lifting Toronto to a 5-4 victory over the Baltimore.

This time the hero was Teoscar Hernández, who hit a two-run single to win the game. Hernández came up with the bases loaded and grounded a single into left field. Pinch runner Santiago Espinal scored easily and Randal Grichuk slid in safely just ahead of the throw by left fielder Mason Williams.

Orioles manager Brandon Hyde took some consolation is how his team stayed in the game, taking leads on three separate occasions.

“I'm proud of our guys coming back and taking the lead in the top of the ninth,” Hyde said. "We just didn't finish it.”

Toronto earned its fourth straight win. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. extended his career-best hitting streak to 12 games, and Hernández had two hits to extend his hit streak to 11 games, also a career high. Cavan Biggio extended his on-base streak to 22 games with an RBI single in the fifth inning.
