A recap of last night's Baltimore/Toronto Game One of three.
There was a bit of head scratching when it was announced yesterday that the Toronto Blue Jays decided to put Cavan Biggio in the lineup.

In fact, the team put Biggio at first base and made Vladimir Guerrero Jr. the designated hitter.

Biggio silenced his critics last night by going three for four in a 6-4 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Danny Jansen opened the scoring for Toronto in the bottom of third inning with a two run homer.

Jansen later hit a RBI double in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Corey Dickerson also homered for Toronto.

Toronto now has 253 home runs this season.

George Springer hit a RBI single in the bottom of the sixth and picked up his 500th career RBI.

The Orioles gave Toronto a scare at the top of the eight inning by scoring four runs.

Kelvin Gutierrez hit a solo home run and Pat Valaika hit a two run homer.

Trey Mancini hit a RBI single.

Valaika had two RBIs last night.

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

It was Matz longest outing of the season.

Jay's reliever, Jordan Romano picked up his 23rd save of the season.

Oriole's starting pitcher, Thomas Eshelman lasted just 2.2 innings.
