MLB: Toronto 7, Baltimore 3

Sept. 23, 2009 at 10:18 PM

TORONTO, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Casey Janssen began a four-inning scoreless stretch by the Toronto bullpen Wednesday in the Blue Jays' 7-3 victory over Baltimore.

Toronto overcame an early 2-0 deficit to win its third straight game.

Scott Richmond (7-10) left the game after five innings with a 4-3 lead and got the win thanks to outstanding relief pitching from Janssen, Josh Roenicke, Brandon League and Jason Frasor.

The relievers combined to give up a hit and one walk.

The Blue Jays broke a 2-2 tie with a three-run fourth. Travis Snider reached on a one-out fielding error by shortstop Cesar Izturis and moved to second on a balk by losing pitcher Jeremy Guthrie (10-16).

John McDonald then singled home Snider, Jose Bautista tripled home McDonald and Bautista scored on a sacrifice fly by Aaron Hill.

Guthrie missed out on a chance to reach 11 victories for the first time in his six-year career.
