The Toronto Blue Jays will try to complete a three-game sweep of the visiting Baltimore Orioles and possibly improve their postseason seeding Sunday afternoon at Buffalo in their final regular-season game. The Blue Jays stayed within one game of the New York Yankees, who are second in the American League East, after defeating the Orioles 5-2 on Saturday night. If the Blue Jays win Sunday and the Yankees lose, Toronto would take second place on the basis of the third tie-breaker, which is the record of each team in their past 20 games within the division. The Blue Jays are scheduled to start right-hander Tanner Roark (2-3, 7.10 ERA) against Orioles left-hander Keegan Akin (1-2, 3.57).

Condensed Game: Cavan Biggio broke up the no-hitter with a home run in the 6th, then Randal Grichuk hit a three-run homer in the 7th

Cavan Biggio broke up a no-hit bid with a solo home run in the sixth inning, Randal Grichuk added a three-run shot and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 Saturday night. The Blue Jays need another victory in Sunday’s regular-season finale, and a Miami win over the Yankees in New York, to move up to second place in the AL East and the fifth seed in the league. If not, Toronto will remain in eighth place and get a first-round playoff meeting with the top-seeded Tampa Bay Rays.
