TORONTO — This is unfamiliar territory for the Orioles, and they're just trying to roll with it.
Mark Reynolds hit a three-run homer, Zach Britton won his fourth straight start and Baltimore moved into a first-place tie in the AL East with a 12-0 victory over the Blue Jays on Tuesday night.
Baltimore's third straight win coupled with the Yankees' loss to the Rays gave the Orioles a share of first place in September for the first time since 1997, the last time they won the division.
"We're just having a good time and we're not putting pressure on ourselves," Reynolds said. "Everybody knows the situation we're in but we're just taking it day by day and having fun."
Staying in the moment is something Orioles manager Buck Showalter has been preaching to his team.
"We've got too many bridges to cross, too many things to do, to accomplish the goal everybody had coming out of spring training," Showalter said.
