Recap: Toronto vs. Baltimore

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Drew Hutchison gave up one run on one hit over 8 2/3 innings, helping the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles, 5-1, in the second test of a three-game series.

The only hit Hutchison allowed was a solo homer to Chris Davis in the second inning. Hutchison (8-9) retired the next 22 batters he faced before walking Nick Markakis with two outs in the ninth.

"I don't think it's any surprise. He's certainly capable of doing what he did tonight," Jose Bautista said about Hutchison.

Casey Janssen was called upon to get the final out of the contest. Hutchison struck out eight and walked one.

Bautista went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and three RBI for the Blue Jays, who snapped a four-game skid and moved within four games of Baltimore for first place in the AL East.

Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen (12-4) saw his five-start winning streak come to an end, losing for the first time since June 28. He gave up four runs on eight hits with six strikeouts over five innings.

"I think everyone in the lineup still feels good," said Davis. "We've had games where we're really swinging the bat well. We know that's not going to last every night. You run into pitchers who are on top of their game."

The Blue Jays jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first. Melky Cabrera and Nolan Reimold singled to put men on first and second with two outs. Dioner Navarro and Danny Valencia followed with consecutive RBI singles.

Davis homered to left in the top of the second. But Bautista responded with a two-run homer to left in the bottom half.

Toronto tacked on another run in the sixth. T.J. McFarland put men on the corners with two outs. Bautista stepped to the plate and hit an RBI double down the left-field line.
