Pinch hitter George Springer hit his 1,000th career RBI in the seventh inning to dominate the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday afternoon 6-1 against the Baltimore Orioles.
The Blue Jays scored his 6 runs in his 7th inning to save his series finale for 3 games, ending a 2-4 homestand.
The Orioles completed his 3-4 trip.
Toronto's right-hander Ross in his strip ring, making his first start since July 30 due to a hip strain, allowed no runs, one hit, and no bases, 6 1/3. In his innings he recorded seven strikeouts.
Baltimore right-hander Austin Voss allowed no runs, two hits, one walk and three strikeouts in his six innings.
Boe took the lead when Bichette hit a double to left field in the bottom of the fifth, but Voss followed his three batters with his two flies to left. Forcing him to retire, catcher Robinson got stuck giving his out for a foul on Chirinos.
Stripling recorded a strikeout in the top of his sixth, retired his next two batters on groundouts, and remained perfect after 18 batters.
Cedric Mullins led his seventh with a single to center, and Anthony Santander's groundout sent him from second to his first. Yimi Garcia (2-4) replaced his Stripling. Mullins finished third with Ryan going shortstop on a Mountcastle groundout. Austin Hayes struck out to end the inning.
Joey Krehbiel (4-4) replaced his Voth in the bottom of the seventh. Teoscar Hernandez hit a one-out his single to center and Bichette's single to right put him in third.
Sionel Perez then took over. Springer hit an RBI single to center to give Toronto a lead that never surrendered. Santiago Espinal hit a two-run double to right to take third on a slow home. Danny Jansen walked and Lewis Head replaced Perez.
Zach Popp, pinch-hitter Terrin He Bavra, Rouned He Odor, and Robinson Chirinos on singles he allowed a run in the eighth inning.
David Phelps recorded his perfect ninth with two strikeouts.
With Stripling off the disabled list Wednesday, Toronto gave right-handed Trent Thornton an option to Triple-A Buffalo.
