TORONTO (AP) — Kevin Gausman won for the first time in four starts, Mark Trumbo hit an RBI double and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-1 on Tuesday night.
The Orioles won their third straight and improved to 8-2 against the Blue Jays this season.
Toronto lost for the fifth time in seven games.
Gausman (4-7) allowed four hits in 5 1/3 innings to win for the first time since May 31 against the Yankees. The right-hander came in 0-3 with a 9.20 ERA over his previous three starts.
Michael Givens pitched 1 2/3 innings and Darren O'Day worked the eighth. Brad Brach gave up a two-out homer to Troy Tulowitzki in the ninth but held on for his 14th save.

Jose Bautista reached on a bloop single to begin the Toronto first, but the Blue Jays didn't get another hit until a one-out single by Kendrys Morales in the fifth.
