A recap of last night's Baltimore/Toronto Game Three.
A sacrifice fly by Randal Grichuk gave the Toronto Blue Jays the 5-4 win over the Baltimore Orioles last night.

As a result, the Jays won the three game series.

Marcus Semien started things off with a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning.

It was Semien's 33rd home run of the season.

The Jays went down 2-1 at the top of the second inning when Toronto walked in two runs.

The Jays went ahead again 4-2 when Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit a two run single.

The O's tied the game 4-4 when Trey Mancini hit a RBI single at the top of the seventh inning.

Jay's catcher, Alejandro Kirk, made two good fielding plays last night.

First, Kirk picked off Austin Wynn at first base at the top of the sixth inning and then threw out Mancini at third base at the top of the seventh inning.

Jay's starting pitcher, Steven Matz pitched five innings, allowing just two earned runs, and struck out five batters.

"To me, he, (Matz) was the player of the game," said Jay's manager, Charlie Montoyo at the postgame press conference. "Great job from him."

Jay's reliever, Jordan Romano picked up his 15th save of the season.

Oriole's Matt Harvey lasted just four innings, allowing four earned runs.

The Orioles left seven runners on base.

The Blue Jays are off today.

Toronto begins a three game series with the Oakland Athletics tomorrow night.
