Daulton Varsho carries Blue Jays over O’s

orioles, blue jays

Daulton Varsho homered to tie the game in the eighth inning and knocked in the go-ahead run with a groundout in the 10th to lift the visiting Toronto Blue Jays to a 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night to begin a three-game series.

Bo Bichette had three hits for the Blue Jays, who were facing the Orioles for the first time this season.

Adley Rutschman homered twice for Baltimore, which mustered just one other hit.

Jordan Romano (1-0) was the winning pitcher with two innings of hitless relief. He struck out Colton Cowser with a runner on third for the second out of the 10th before Jordan Westburg walked. Cedric Mullins then grounded out to end the game.

It was the first time Romano logged more than one inning in a game this year.

Toronto’s 10th inning began with Ernie Clement’s bunt single, putting runners on the corners before Davis Schneider popped out in foul ground. Varsho followed with his run-scoring groundout.

Blue Jays starter Jose Berrios allowed two runs on three hits to go along with four strikeouts and a walk across seven innings. With a no-decision, he remains 10-1 in his career against the Orioles.

Jacob Webb (0-2) took the loss.

Baltimore starter Corbin Burnes was charged with one run on six hits in six innings. He walked two and fanned two.

Rutschman led off the fourth with a homer that put the Orioles up 1-0, then went deep with two outs in the sixth to give Baltimore a 2-1 lead. He now has eight home runs on the year.

Varsho’s seventh homer of 2024 tied the game at 2 with one out in the eighth.

After Burnes exited, the Orioles went with their recently revamped bullpen order. Craig Kimbrel pitched the seventh, and Yennier Cano allowed Varsho’s home run in the eighth. Baltimore ended up using five relievers in all.

Toronto’s first run came on Daniel Vogelbach’s run-scoring single in the sixth inning.

Aside from Rutschman’s homers, the only other Baltimore hit was a Ryan O’Hearn single with two outs in the first inning.
