Blue Jays beat the Orioles 13-5 in sweepTORONTO - These are the Toronto Blue Jays Edwin Encarnacion expected after a busy offseason.
Encarnacion homered and drove in four runs, Josh Johnson earned his first win of the season and the Blue Jays matched a team record by winning their 11th straight game Sunday, finishing a three-game sweep of Baltimore with a 13-5 win.
The Blue Jays have gone 28-15 since May 2, when they were a season-worst 10-21. They’ve won 15 of their past 18, outscoring their opponents 102-52 in that span.
Toronto has swept three consecutive series for the first time since 1998, the last time they won 11 straight. The Blue Jays also won 11 consecutive games in 1987.
“Everybody is doing their job, everybody is pitching in,” Johnson said. “It’s been impressive.”
Playing before a sellout crowd of 45,214, Toronto became the first team since Detroit in 2011 to win 11 straight.
