Davis hits 16th HR as Orioles beat Blue Jays
Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 16th home run, Nick Markakis had three hits and three RBIs and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-6 on Friday night.
J.J. Hardy, Danny Valencia and Adam Jones all went deep as the Orioles matched a season high in runs and set a season high with four home runs. Baltimore has hit an ML-best 66 homers this season.
The teams combined for 33 hits, 16 by Baltimore and 17 by Toronto, with Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia the only starter on either side who didn't reach safely via a hit or walk. He went 0 for 5 with three strikeouts.
Melky Cabrera, Brett Lawrie and Adam Lind all hit solo homers for the Blue Jays, but Lawrie and manager John Gibbons were ejected at the end of the third inning.
