Cedric Mullins had two triples and two RBIs to help the Baltimore Orioles salvage the finale of a regular season-ending three-game series with a 7-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday in Buffalo.
The Blue Jays (32-28), who will enter the playoffs as the No. 8 seed in the American League, won eight of the 10 meetings with the Orioles (25-35) this season.
Lourdes Gurriel Jr. was 4-for-4 with a two-run homer and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. added a solo shot for Toronto.
Orioles starter Keegan Akin allowed four runs on five hits in three innings. Travis Lakins Sr. (3-2) relieved Akin and permitted a walk and struck out one in two innings. Cesar Valdez pitched a perfect ninth to earn his third save.
Toronto starter Tanner Roark allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits in four innings.
Blue Jays right fielder Jonathan Davis robbed Mullins in his bid for a home run with a spectacular catch. He climbed the wall in the corner to make a sensational grab for the third out in the second inning.
Davis then hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the second to score Gurriel, who had doubled and moved to third on Travis Shaw’s single.
Renato Nunez doubled in the third to score Austin Hays, who had singled and advanced to third on two groundouts.
