Blue Jays 5, Orioles 1

TORONTO — Drew Hutchison came within one out of his second career complete game, Jose Bautista homered and drove in three runs and the Blue Jays beat the Orioles 5-1 on Wednesday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.

Melky Cabrera had three hits as Toronto closed within four games of the AL East-leading Orioles and handed Baltimore its first loss in four games.

Hutchison allowed just one hit, a solo homer by Chris Davis in the second, to win for the second time in three starts. Hutchison responded to the homer by setting down 22 straight batters but was replaced after Nick Markakis walked in the ninth.

Casey Janssen came on and finished it by getting Manny Machado to foul out.

Davis, who also homered in Baltimore's 9-3 win on Tuesday, went deep in back-to-back games for the first time since Aug. 12-13, 2013.

All five Toronto runs came with two outs, and the Blue Jays collected nine two-out hits.

Wei-Yin Chen had won his past five starts but couldn't extend that career-best streak.

Former Ray Dioner Navarro and Danny Valencia had RBI singles in the first for the Blue Jays.

Cabrera hit a two-out double in the second and Bautista followed with a second-deck drive to left.

Bautista made it 5-1 with a two-out double off T.J. McFarland in the sixth.
