BALTIMORE (AP) - Mark Buehrle allowed one run over seven innings to win his third straight start, and the Toronto Blue Jays hit three home runs and had a season-high 17 hits in an 11-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday.
Jose Bautista hit a three-run drive and Colby Rasmus and Brett Lawrie had solo shots to help Toronto win the decisive matchup of the three-game series.
Rasmus, Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind each collected three hits for the Blue Jays, who enjoyed their highest scoring game of the year at the expense of Ubaldo Jimenez (0-3) and three Baltimore relievers.
Buehrle (3-0) gave up five hits, walked none and struck out two. The left-hander has allowed only two runs in 21 innings, an 0.86 ERA.
