TORONTO (AP) — Adam Jones had two hits and an RBI, Kevin Gausman pitched seven strong innings and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1 on Wednesday night, snapping a six-game losing streak.

Kendrys Morales had three hits for the Blue Jays, whose four-game winning streak was halted.

Gausman (11-10) allowed one run and six hits, improving to 3-0 with a 1.51 ERA in six starts against the Blue Jays this season, as the Orioles won for the first time since Sept. 5 against the Yankees.

The Orioles began the day 4 1/2 games behind Minnesota for the second AL wild card spot. Baltimore has scored two runs or fewer in six of its past seven.

Darren O'Day pitched the eighth and Zach Britton finished for his 14th save in 16 chances. Britton gave up two runs in the ninth inning Tuesday as the Orioles lost 3-2.
