Trailing 6-4 in the ball game, shortstop Munenori Kawasaki hit a two run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning and Rajai Davis drove in the winning run with a two out single in the bottom of the ninth to finish off the late rally and lead the team to another win.
Reliever Casey Janssen pitched a scoreless ninth inning and picked up the win, his second on the year as Toronto continues to play good baseball and get themselves back in the race for a spot in this years MLB Playoffs.
The Blue Jays will look to continue their winning ways at home on Saturday when Chien-Ming Wang makes his third start of the season. Baltimore will counter with Miguel Gonzalez, who is 5-2 on the year and 2-1 lifetime against Toronto.
