Davis hits 36th HR but Blue Jays beat Orioles 7-3
J.P. Arencibia put Toronto ahead with a two-run single in the sixth inning, and the Blue Jays overcame home runs by Chris Davis and Adam Jones in a 7-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.
Edwin Encarnacion hit his 25th homer, and Maicer Izturis had three hits to help the Blue Jays secure their fourth win in 11 games.
Davis increased his major-league leading home run total to 36 with his third long ball in three games, a solo shot in the second inning. Reggie Jackson is the only player in AL history with more home runs before the All-Star break, hitting 37 in 1969.
