Blue Jays 6, Orioles 4

TORONTO — Rookie Adeiny Hechavarria drove in the go-ahead run with a bunt single, Rajai Davis homered and had three RBIs and the Blue Jays beat the Orioles 6-4 Wednesday night to knock Baltimore out of a first-place tie.

The Orioles fell a game behind the Yankees in the AL East a day after tying them. Adam Jones hit a solo home run and Mark Reynolds had a two-run drive off Casey Janssen in the ninth, his sixth in six games for Baltimore.

The Orioles return home today for a pivotal seven-game homestand that begins with four against New York, followed by three against the Rays. The three teams are separated by 2½ games.

Yunel Escobar led off the seventh with a broken bat double and moved up on Kelly Johnson's bunt hit. With one out, Hechavarria put down a safety squeeze. Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez charged and tried to scoop the ball to the plate with his glove, but it rolled past Matt Wieters as Escobar slid in, giving the Blue Jays their first lead in September.

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

  5. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.
