June 22, 2013 at 4:13 PM

TORONTO, June 22 (UPI) -- Jose Bautista lined a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning Saturday and the Toronto Blue Jays won their 10th straight, 4-2 over Baltimore.

The Orioles had wiped out a one-run deficit in the top of the eighth when Taylor Teagarden connected on a score-tying a solo homer against Darren Oliver (3-1).

Toronto came back in the next half-inning when Munenori Kawasaki got a one-out single off Orioles' starter Miguel Gonzalez and Darren O'Day came in to pitch.

After Rajai Davis grounded out, Bautista smacked a pitch down the left field line that curled around the foul pole for a decisive two-run clout.

Casey Janssen tossed a 1-2-3 ninth for his 17th save as the Blue Jays won a 10th consecutive game for the first time since 2008.

Toronto starter Chien-Ming Wang allowed just one run on five hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Gonzalez (5-3) surrendered three runs on three hits over 7 1/3 frames, walking three and striking out five for Baltimore.
