TORONTO (AP) — Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 50th home run, a tiebreaking solo shot in the eighth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles erased a 3-0 deficit to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 on Friday night, snapping a three-game losing streak.
Davis became the 27th major leaguer to join the 50-homer club, and the first since Jose Bautista in 2010. Davis led off the eighth with a blast to center off All-Star reliever Steve Delabar, connecting on a 2-2 pitch.
The drive matched Brady Anderson's 1996 Orioles record and made Davis just the third player in major league history with 50 homers and 40 doubles in the same season. The others were Babe Ruth (1921) and Albert Belle (1995).
Adam Jones followed Davis' milestone blast with an infield hit and, two outs later, moved up on Ryan Flaherty's walk before scoring on Danny Valencia's RBI single.
