The hard charging Toronto Blue Jays are breathing down the Orioles necks for the American League East. The Blue Jays had lost three in a row so Friday’s victory was crucial and has the team in a virtual tie for first in the division. Jays tarter Marco Estrada gave up four runs (three earned) on five hits and pair of BB to get the victory. Toronto logged seven hits and four walks with Jose Bautista, Troy Tulowitzki and Edwin Encarnacion all going deep. Left hander JA Happ draws Saturday’s start against the visiting Orioles.
