Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s walk-off lifts Jays over O’s

blue jays

Isiah Kiner-Falefa hit an RBI single to deep right field in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the visiting Baltimore Orioles 3-2 Wednesday night.

Kiner-Falefa’s game-winning hit against Craig Kimbrel (4-2) gave Toronto its second walkoff win of the season, both of which have come during its current seven-game homestand.

Anthony Santander hit a solo home run for the Orioles, who had won the first two games of the four-game series by a combined score of 17-3.

Justin Turner had three hits for the Blue Jays, who are 3-3 on the homestand. Yimi Garcia (2-0) pitched a perfect ninth to pick up the win.

Toronto right-hander Jose Berrios allowed two runs, six hits and three walks while striking out two in six innings. He maintained his 10-1 career record against Baltimore.

Orioles right-hander Albert Suarez allowed two runs, five hits and one walk with four strikeouts in five innings.

Santander led off Baltimore’s two-run second with his 12th homer of the season on a towering drive to right. It was his second of the series and the 17th of his career against Toronto.

Cedric Mullins kept the inning going with a two-out walk before he stole second and scored on Ramon Urias’s double to right.

The Blue Jays tied the game in the bottom of the second.

George Springer walked, took third on Turner’s double to left and scored on Alejandro Kirk’s sacrifice fly to center. Kiner-Falefa pulled Toronto grounded an RBI single up the middle to even the game at 2. He finished 2-for-4 with two RBIs.

Jacob Webb replaced Suarez in the sixth and pitched around a leadoff double and a two-out single. Tim Mayza took over for the Blue Jays in the seventh and allowed a walk in two-thirds of an inning before being replaced by Chad Green.

Kimbrel allowed Turner’s leadoff single in the Toronto ninth. Cavan Biggio ran for Turner and took second on Kimbrel’s errant pickoff attempt. Biggio advanced to third on Kirk’s flyout to right and scored on Kiner-Falefa’s hit.
