Three-run inning leads Orioles past Blue Jays

Ramon Urias delivered a go-ahead, two-run double in a three-run sixth inning as the visiting Baltimore Orioles defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 Tuesday night.

The Orioles, who did not have a hit until the sixth, ended a three-game Blue Jays winning streak and gained a split of the first two games of the three-game series.

Baltimore had lost its previous four games.

Orioles left-hander Keegan Akin (2-8) allowed one run, two hits and three walks with five strikeouts in five innings to earn his second consecutive win.

Cole Sulser pitched a perfect ninth inning to earn his sixth save.

Toronto left-hander Hyun Jin Ryu (12-8) gave up three runs, three hits and three walks while striking out six in 5 2/3 innings.

Danny Jansen and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit solo home runs for the Blue Jays.

Jansen, playing his first game since July 23, led off the third inning with his sixth homer of the season. He had been sidelined due to a strained right hamstring.

After walking two batters in the first inning, Ryu retired 15 batters in a row before Ryan Mountcastle doubled with two outs in the sixth.

Austin Hays singled up the middle to tie the game and took second on the throw home. Anthony Santander walked. Urias stroked a two-run double to left, and Adam Cimber replaced Ryu to finish the inning.

Jorge Lopez replaced Akin and allowed Guerrero's 39th homer of the season to lead off the bottom of the sixth.

Baltimore's Jorge Mateo led off the seventh with a walk, took third on Cimber's errant pickoff attempt and scored on a single by Jahmai Jones.

Lopez allowed two singles in the seventh before being replaced by Tyler Wells, who retired Guerrero on fly ball to center to end the inning.

Wells pitched around a single in the eighth inning.

Toronto designated hitter George Springer, who returned from a sprained knee on Monday, was replaced by pinch runner Jarrod Dyson in the seventh. On first after a forceout, he stopped abruptly after rounding second base on Marcus Semien's single, deciding not to try for third.

Toronto optioned right-hander Trent Thornton to Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday and designated left-hander Brad Hand for assignment.
