Trey Mancini homered for the Orioles, who won the series opener and were trying to put together back-to-back victories for the first time since May 4-6.

Baltimore used a four-run eighth to cut into an 8-2 deficit but could not complete the comeback.

Pitching in his 400th career game, Edwin Jackson (1-4) allowed two runs in five innings of relief for Toronto. The 35-year-old was initially listed as the starter, but manager Charlie Montoyo switched to opener Derek Law so the struggling Jackson could avoid facing the top of the Baltimore batting order at the outset.

Law pitched a scoreless first inning before giving way to Jackson, who came in with an 11.90 ERA over five starts.

Daniel Hudson quelled Baltimore's uprising in the eighth and earned his first save by getting three straight outs after the Orioles put runners on second and third.

HOME AND AWAY

Baltimore's major league-worst home record fell to 9-24. Toronto ended a seven-game road skid and improved the AL's second-worst road record to 12-21.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Blue Jays: Toronto closer Ken Giles (1-1, 1.08 ERA, 11 saves) was placed on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to June 9, with elbow inflammation. Montoyo expects the right-hander's stint on the IL to be a short one.

Orioles: Manager Brandon Hyde said the decision to shut down RHP Alex Cobb for season-ending hip surgery did not come abruptly. "I knew it was a possibility. Obviously we want what's best for Alex, and we want Alex healthy," said Hyde, who expects Cobb to be ready for spring training.
