A recap of last night's Baltimore/Toronto.
It seems that Toronto Blue Jay's slugger, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is back in form.

Last night, Guerrero Jr. hit his 37th and 38th home run of the season in a 7-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

It didn't start off good for the Jays, though.

Ryan Mountcastle hit a solo home run at the top of the first inning to put Baltimore up 1-0.

Bo Bichette tied the game in the bottom of the sixth inning with a RBI single.

Toronto's Teoscar Hernandez got out of his slump with a RBI double.

The real story of the night, though, was the performance of Jay's starting pitcher, Robbie Ray.

Ray had another solid outing on the mound last night.

Ray pitched seven innings, allowing just two earned runs, and struck out 10 batters.

At the postgame press conference, Ray said his slider is the reason for his success lately.

"The key is keeping us in the game and putting up zeros," said Ray.

Ray now has 202 strikeouts this season.

It was Ray's first win in six starts.

Jay's reliever, Jordan Romano, recorded his 14th save last night.

Guerrero Jr. had four RBIs last night.

Orioles Pedro Severino hit a RBI double.

Mountcastle went two for three at the plate.

Oriole's starting pitcher, Chris Ellis pitched 4.2 innings, allowing an earned run.

Game Two is tonight.
