Eliminated from playoff contention long ago, the Blue Jays are finishing with a flourish. They've won a season-high six straight games, including a three-game sweep over the American League wild card-winning Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Overall, Toronto has won nine of 10 games, a streak that started with a three-game sweep of the Orioles last week. The Blue Jays' offense has fueled the late-season surge. The Blue Jays hit 13 homers in the three-game series against Boston and have connected for a total of 46 homers in September, two shy of a team record for any month.

The Orioles came to Toronto this week riding the momentum of eight wins in their previous 11 games and were fresh off taking two of three in Detroit. That momentum was crushed over the weekend here at Rogers Centre, and after the Orioles' 13-5 loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon, they couldn't wait to get their passports out and get out of Canada. In allowing a season high in runs Sunday, the Orioles (42-34) were swept in a three-game series for just the second time this season and the first time on the road as the Blue Jays won their 11th straight game; the streak is the longest in the majors this season and the best since the Tigers won 12 in a row in 2011.

After getting swept by the New York Yankees this week to end Baltimore's season-opening, six-game homestand, the Orioles need to get away, right? Maybe not. The Orioles will open their first road trip of the season - a three-city, 10-game swing - in the House of Horrors that's otherwise known as the Rogers Centre. Maybe the ghost of Cito Gaston still haunts the O's. Maybe it's years of lingering hangover from the end of the 1989 “Why Not?” season. Whatever it is, the Orioles have been horrible north of the border.

There's been little rest for the Orioles recently, and fresh off a three-city, nine-game road trip, even manager Buck Showalter said that his team hoped to grind through the three days before their final off-day of the regular season on Thursday. “It feels like we've been going for a month,” Showalter said. But with 10 games to go in the regular season - and every one pivotal in a playoff race - adrenaline replaces any wear and tear. Center fielder Adam Jones went 4-for-4 with a homer and Baltimore native Steve Johnson threw five scorless innings as the Orioles took the first game of Monday's single-admission doubleheader against the Toronto Blue Jays, 4-1. Jones' homer was his his 32nd of the season, a two-run shot in the fourth inning that gave the Orioles a 2-0 lead.

This time, there wasn't just one pitch for Jeremy Guthrie to lament as there was in his last outing, when he lost his shutout bid and the Orioles lost the game on an eighth-inning, three-run homer by the Seattle Mariners' Justin Smoak. Guthrie made plenty of mistakes Sunday, and the Toronto Blue Jays made him pay early and often. Yunel Escobar broke the game open with a three-run homer in the fourth inning and Adam Lind added the first of his two homers one inning later as the Blue Jays prevailed, 7-4, in front of an announced 25,431 at sun-drenched Camden Yards, and took the three-game series.

Each morning, Monday through Friday, I'll hook you up with reading material to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday -- that way I'll have an excuse to do the same at the start of mine.   Running it back: Life in Canada was no different for the Orioles on Tuesday, as the Blue Jays won, 6-5, in 11 innings when Adam Lind hit a walk-off home run against reliever Koji Uehara . ...

The Orioles' likely Opening Day lineup and several members of their projected bullpen got a final tune-up for the regular season in a 7-4 loss Tuesday afternoon to the Toronto Blue Jays in front of an announced crowd of 5,522 at Ed Smith Stadium. Veteran first baseman Derrek Lee went 3-for-4 with two doubles and his first spring RBI, catcher Matt Wieters had two hits, including an RBI double, and Brian Roberts and Vladimir Guerrero each drove in runs in the losing effort. "I have been starting to feel a little better the last couple of days and it definitely felt good.

The Orioles finally broke their seemingly interminable losing streak at Rogers Centre with a 4-3 win on Thursday afternoon, but they may have lost their rotation leader to injury. Orioles right-hander Jeremy Guthrie was pitching superbly, allowing just one hit and one walk through five innings. He struck out five batters and had thrown an economical 64 pitches, 41 for strikes. But he didn't come out for the sixth inning because of a back strain. The severity of the strain was not announced during the game.

Strengths -- It's his power. That's his No. 1 strength. He's a legit power guy who is going to hit 20 to 25 home runs. He works very hard and he is a pretty smart kid. Right now, he is just a neophyte in the big leagues, but he'll figure it out. Weaknesses -- He has holes at the plate. He has a tough sweeping swing and if you throw the ball in a certain area that he likes, he is going to hit it. But he has a difficult time with adjustments. In left field, he is a work in progress. He works very hard but, right now, he is below average defensively.
