 TORONTO (AP) - Jose Bautista hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays won their 10th straight game Saturday, beating the Baltimore Orioles 4-2.
Maicer Izturis hit a solo homer in the fifth and Bautista had a two-run drive for Toronto, on its longest winning streak since a 10-game run late in 2008. The Blue Jays, who are 14-4 this month, are one victory from matching the franchise record. Toronto had 11-game winning streaks in 1987 and 1998.
The Blue Jays led 2-1 heading into the eighth but Taylor Teagarden tied it with a homer off reliever Darren Oliver (3-1).
Miguel Gonzalez (5-3) allowed three runs and three hits in 7 1-3 innings.
YANKEES 7, RAYS 5
NEW YORK (AP) - Vernon Wells broke out of his big slump with a pinch-hit, three-run double, and the New York Yankees rallied to beat the Rays.
Wells was in a 9-for-87 slide that landed him on the bench the past two days, with rookie outfielder Zoilo Almonte starting in his place. But with the Yankees trailing 5-4 in the seventh inning, Wells batted for No. 9 hitter Chris Stewart with the bases loaded and two outs.
Wells' clutch hit got CC Sabathia (8-5) off the hook after he allowed five runs in seven innings. Mariano Rivera worked a scoreless ninth for his 26th save.
WHITE SOX 3, ROYALS 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Alejandro De Aza drove in Jordan Danks with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, sending the White Sox to a victory over the Royals.
Jesse Crain (2-1) got through a shaky eighth inning for the White Sox, putting a runner on third with one out and then leaving him there. Addison Reed handled a perfect ninth for his 21st save.
Aaron Crow (3-3) was the loser.
Crain extended his club record with his 29th consecutive scoreless appearance.
