O's Get Seven Homers To Beat Blue Jays
The Orioles tied the game and then took a 6-2 lead on three home runs during the fifth inning of Wednesday's game with the Blue Jays.
During the next three innings, the Orioles hit four more homers to give the club a 12-2 lead and a win against the Blue Jays.
Jim Thome's fifth-inning solo blast tied the game at 2, then Manny Machado hit a solo shot and Chris Davis hit a three-run homer.
Machado and Davis homered again later during the game, and Nate McLouth and Mark Reynolds each had one home run.
The power output was reminiscent of the club's surge earlier this month. The O's needed the win to keep track of the Yankees, who won Wednesday against Minnesota. The Orioles are 1.5 games behind New York in the American League East and hold the top wild-card spot in the AL as well with six games left.
