Blue Jays go for sweep of Orioles



After leading the Blue Jays to a 4-3 victory over the Orioles on Monday, Toronto starter Marco Estrada, a free agent at the season's end, emphasized how his future with the organization could be determined by his few remaining starts.

He proved it again on Tuesday night.

MAILE MASH: Luke Maile has five hits in his past three games, including a game-tying RBI single in the bottom of the ninth off Britton on Tuesday, as he tries to close out a hard offensive season on a positive note.

"I think that when you're cruising along and you have it turn like that really quickly, it eats at you a little bit".

Kudos to Darwin Barney for managing to look good all while panicking his way towards a base ... all while making it safe into third. "Just wasn't able to do it [in the ninth], didn't repeat it when I went back out there". "Like I said, I came in to Morales and pounded the zone down".

"It's been a frustrating season for me because I've been a lot less consistent than I would have liked to be", Biagini said. "I just didn't make quality pitches".

Gibbons does not really care about Martin's year-long struggles at the plate. "I'm pretty happy about that". But when he made his practice throw to second base, Martin knew he was in trouble and pulled himself from the game.

First, Kevin Pillar was walked by Britton to start the bottom of the ninth inning before Teoscar Hernandez advanced him to third with a line-drive single.

"He wants to [play] real bad", Gibbons said on Tuesday. "There's no mystery to it, you know what you're getting for the most part. I'm trying. I'm trying to show them that I'm still that guy". "He left a couple up and fortunately we put the bat on it". He is a former Los Angeles Dodger, and it was with the Dodgers where he last appeared in less than 100 games in a season.Martin will not be in the lineup today, but he is expected to see playing time during the series against the Orioles.

Britton was attempting to convert a four-out save, and he got the Orioles out of a two-on, two-out jam in the eighth inning.

Brayden Bouchey, Orlando Pascual and William Ouellette, recording the final two outs for the save, locked things down as the Canadians won the series 3-1.

The Canadians featured Warmoth, fellow first-rounder Nate Pearson, catcher Riley Adams and first baseman Kacy Clemens, among several others, who helped lead the Canadians to top spot in the Northwest League's North Division at 43-33.
