The Toronto Blue Jays blew a save for the first time this season but for a change, didn’t blow the game.

After losing a 5-2 seventh-inning lead, and nearly losing the game in the 10th, Wednesday Camden Yards, the Jays rallied with two out in the 11th to nip the Baltimore Orioles 6-5, averting a three-game sweep.

After Rajai Davis had cut down the winning run at the plate to end the 10th inning, Maicer Izturis walked on four pitches against Baltimore closer Jim Johnson with the bases loaded in the top of the 11th to plate the winning run in a 6-5 Toronto win.

After Edwin Encarnacion and Melky Cabrera made two quick outs against Johnson in the 11th, J.P. Arencibia and Munenori Kawasaki each delivered base hits. Johnson then hit Brett Lawrie to load the bases and then Izturis watched four straight balls to plate Arencibia with the winning run.

The Blue Jays looked to be on their way to wasting a superb pitching performance from Brandon Morrow. Cruising along on a two-hitter, with a 5-2 lead through six innings, Morrow gave up a run in the seventh, then watched from the dugout as reliever Aaron Loup gave up back-to-back RBI extra-base hits to tie the game.

Toronto had come into the game as the one of three MLB teams, along with the Texas Rangers and Atlanta Braves, not to have blown a save in 2013. In the end, Casey Janssen evened things out by erasing the Orioles in order in the 11th for his sixth save of the year.

In the bottom of the first, Nat McLouth’s leadoff double, followed two outs later by a slicing double to right off the bat of Adam Jones, gave the Orioles a 1-0 lead. Those turned out to be the only base hits Morrow would allow until a one-out double by Ryan Flaherty chased him from the game in the seventh. It was the 16th time in 22 games that opponents have scored first against Toronto and in the previous 15 times, the Jays were 3-12.
