BALTIMORE — Rougned Odor hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Baltimore Orioles came from behind to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-5 on Tuesday.

The Orioles trailed 5-3 in the sixth inning before the game was halted for 78 minutes due to rain. In the second leg, the Orioles cut the lead in half thanks to a one-point double from Ryan Mountcastle. Odor slammed the ball over the fence against Yimi Garcia (1-4) in the next inning.

Nick Vespi (4-0) struck out both batters he faced in the eighth inning and muzzled the Jays. Félix Bautista pitched in the ninth inning and earned his sixth save of the campaign.

Bo Bichette hit two home runs for the Jays, including a three-run in the sixth inning. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. extended his one-hit streak to 20 with a sixth-inning single.

Alek Manoah allowed three runs and eight hits in five innings for the Blue Jays.

The Queen City club appeared to have hit a triple play in the opening leg, but the video replay overturned the decision. The Jays trailed 3-1 before scoring four runs in the sixth inning.
