Rajai Davis singled home the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied for their ninth straight win, 7-6 over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night.

Munenori Kawasaki hit his first career home run, a tying two-run shot in the seventh, while Adam Lind and Edwin Encarnacion also connected for the Blue Jays.

Casey Janssen (2-0) worked one inning for the win as Toronto evened its record at 36-36.

Facing Orioles reliever Brian Matusz (2-1), Maicer Izturis singled to begin the ninth and moved to second on Josh Thole's sacrifice. Pinch-hitter Mark DeRosa was intentionally walked to bring up Kawasaki, who moved up both runners with a grounder.

Pedro Strop came on to face Davis, who lined a single over the head of shortstop J.J. Hardy. Davis' teammates poured out of the dugout in celebration, mobbing him and tearing off his jersey.
