TORONTO (AP) — Two bigs swings from Kendrys Morales made sure the Toronto Blue Jays stayed perfect at home against Baltimore.Morales homered twice Trea Turner Jersey , Marco Estrada pitched 5 1/3 innings to win his second straight start and the Blue Jays beat Baltimore 5-3 on Monday night, improving to 8-0 at home against the Orioles.Morales broke his bat on his one-out solo homer in the fourth, then added a three-run drive into the second deck in the fifth — both coming against Baltimore right-hander Andrew Cashner (4-11) — for his 22nd career multihomer game.“I guess maybe the wind was blowing out,” Morales said through a translator when asked about his first homer.And the second?“He just threw me a meatball and I hit it much better than the first one,” Morales said.Renato Nunez replied with a solo home run for the struggling Orioles, who have lost nine of their past 11.Toronto is 10-1 overall against Baltimore, five more wins than the Blue Jays have against any other opponent.Estrada (7-9) allowed three runs and seven hits, improving to 9-2 in 18 career games against Baltimore.“I was happy with the way I was locating,” Estrada said. “Maybe two or three hard hit balls, but that’s going to happen. For the most part I felt like we were in control.”Ryan Tepera got four outs and Jaime Garcia struck out the only batter he faced. Tyler Clippard worked the eighth and Ken Giles finished for his 16th save in 16 opportunities.Baltimore became the first team mathematically eliminated from playoff contention when Oakland won later Monday.Toronto’s Kevin Pillar went 2 for 4 with two doubles and an RBI. On Sunday, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons publicly berated Pillar in the dugout after the outfielder ended the sixth inning by getting thrown out attempting to steal third. Toronto trailed the New York Yankees 6-2 at the time.After Pillar doubled in his first at bat Monday, Gibbons stared into the camera trained on his seat in Toronto’s dugout, then flashed a smile and a thumbs up.Cashner allowed five runs and seven hits in six innings to remain winless in four starts against Toronto this season.“You’ve got to get strike one,” Cashner said. “I worked behind a lot of guys which allowed them to just sit fastball.”Craig Gentry had three hits for the Orioles, while Chris Davis hit a sacrifice fly.ALL IN THE FAMILYBefore the game http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-wieters-jersey , Orioles OF Adam Jones tweeted a welcome message to new Blue Jays C Danny Jansen, who was promoted from Triple-A on Aug. 12.

Jansen flied out to Jones for the final out of the second.STREAKINGJansen doubled in the fourth, becoming the third player in Blue Jays history with hits in each of his first six major league games. The others were Jesse Barfield (eight games in 1981) and Ryan Goins (eight games in 2013).EXTRA, EXTRA!Six of Toronto’s seven hits went for extra bases. The lone exception was a single by SS Aledmys Diaz in the sixth, Toronto’s final hit of the game.TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: Baltimore put DH Mark Trumbo (right knee) on the 10-day DL and recalled OF John Andeoli from Triple-A Norfolk. … Jones was reinstated from the bereavement list and returned to the lineup after missing the previous three games.

WASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals will try to earn a split of their four-game series with the New York Mets on Sunday, one day after they were officially eliminated from postseason contention.Shortly after Saturday’s game got underway, the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the San Francisco Giants to dash the Nationals’ wild-card hopes. Their bid for a third straight National League East crown ended Friday night when the Atlanta Braves won and they lost.“It stings,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said of being eliminated. “But we’ve still got seven more games … these guys don’t quit.”Article continues below ...The Nationals in fact turned in a stellar effort Saturday. Rookie Austin Voth and four relievers combined on a one-hitter, and Matt Wieters and Trea Turner homered in their 6-0 victory over the Mets.Voth allowed one infield hit in five innings while striking out five and walking two in his second major league start.“He kept us off balance,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. “He had a good curveball, I thought. He was able to throw it for strikes … and then he got it down when he needed to Joe Blanton Jersey , and his fastball command was pretty good.”The Mets lead the season series 10-8 with one game remaining.Washington, favored to win a third straight division title, slid into third place on June 22 and remained there.“You want to come out and win every year and have a chance to go into the playoffs, but it happens,” Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman said of falling short. “That’s why it’s sports and that’s why sports are one of the greatest things in the world, because you never know what’s going to happen.”Mets left-hander Steven Matz (5-11, 4.03 ERA) opposes right-hander Erick Fedde (2-3, 5.02) on Sunday.Matz took his fourth straight no-decision Sept. 18 at Philadelphia. He pitched five shutout innings, giving up two hits and five walks. In his last six starts, he has a 2.29 ERA.“He weathered the storm a bit and came back and started getting in a groove again, and hopefully he can continue to finish strong,” Callaway said. “I think it’s important to finish on a good note and come into next year ready to go.”He also homered for the second consecutive start, becoming the third Mets pitcher (Tom Seaver, 1972; Ron Darling, 1989) to do so. The solo shot came off Cy Young contender Aaron Nola Howie Kendrick Jersey , thereby helping teammate Jacob deGrom.“I told (deGrom), ‘That was for my friend there,'” Matz told the New York Post after raising Nola’s ERA.The left-hander is making his sixth start against the Nationals this season after going 0-3 with a 5.48 in the first five outings. He took the loss the last time he faced them, Aug. 26 at Citi Field, despite pitching seven innings of one-run ball.Matz is 1-5 with a 3.63 ERA versus Washington in his career, including 1-1 with a 3.05 ERA at Nationals Park.Fedde, 25, will be making his 10th start of the season. Last time out he allowed two runs, two hits and four walks in 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision versus the Marlins. He left after throwing 93 pitches and was unable to fix what was causing the walks.“That’s something I need to be better at,” Fedde told the Washington Post. “Whether you say it’s tough or not, it needs to be done.”He has yet to face the Mets this season and is 0-0 with a 7.50 ERA in one career start against them.
