Ryan Mountcastle, Orioles bomb Blue Jays 10-1

blue jays, orioles

Ryan Mountcastle had two home runs and five RBIs, right-hander Corbin Burnes pitched seven strong innings and the visiting Baltimore Orioles routed the Toronto Blue Jays 10-1 Tuesday night.

Connor Norby added a two-run shot for his first hit in the majors, and the Orioles have won the first two games of the four-game series.

Mountcastle continued his success against the Blue Jays. He has 17 home runs and 48 RBIs in 56 career games against them.

Burnes (6-2) allowed one run, four hits and one walk while striking out five. It was his career-best eighth consecutive quality start (at least six innings, three or fewer runs).

George Springer hit a solo home run for the Blue Jays, who dropped to 2-3 on their seven-game homestand.

Right-hander Trevor Richards pitched two perfect innings with four strikeouts as Toronto’s opener.

Genesis Cabrera (2-2) took over for Toronto and hit Colton Cowser with a pitch. Gunnar Henderson walked with two out and Adley Rutschman stroked an RBI single to center. Bowden Francis replaced Cabrera and allowed Mountcastle’s ninth home run of the season on a shot to left.

Baltimore added three runs in the fifth against Francis. Henderson doubled, took third on a balk and scored on Rutschman’s single to right. Mountcastle followed with his 10th home run of the season on a blast to center.

Zach Pop walked Henderson and Rutschman to open the Baltimore seventh. After Mountcastle grounded into a double play, Anthony Santander hit an RBI double to right.

Springer hit his fifth homer of the season with two out in the bottom of the seventh.

Toronto’s Nate Pearson walked Cowser and gave up Norby’s home run on a blast to left in the eighth. Norby played his first major league game on Monday and was 0-for-6 in the two games until the blast.

Jacob Webb replaced Burnes and pitched a perfect home eighth. Nick Vespi allowed only a single in the Toronto ninth.

Toronto reinstated Francis from the injured list (right forearm extensor tendinitis) Tuesday and optioned right-hander Ryan Burr to Triple-A Buffalo.

Francis allowed five hits and four runs in 3 1/3 innings on Tuesday.
