Jose Bautista


The Orioles have quite a history with Jose Bautista. Darren O’Day and the Toronto Blue Jays slugger have snipped each other in recent years.


It’s probably a good thing that the Orioles’ Adam Jones and the Blue Jays’ Jose Bautista don’t come in close proximity except when they’re running off and on to the outfield between innings.


TORONTO (AP) -- Edwin Encarnacion smashed a pair of home runs and Jose Bautista added another to power the Toronto Blue Jays to a 13-6 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night.


2014 record: 83-79, 3rd place in AL East

Manager: John Gibbons, 8th season (2004-08, 2013-present)


The Orioles couldnt take advantage of the Yankees loss to close the gap in the American League East, but the Rays are now a half-game behind Baltimore for the last AL wild-card spot.
