Best of MLB: Blue Jays win on Edwin Encarnacion walk-off HR


TORONTO -- Edwin Encarnacion hit a game-ending home run in the 10th inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Orioles 4-3 on Friday night, snapping Baltimore's winning streak at five.

Encarnacion hit an opposite field shot off Brad Brach (5-1) to begin the 10th and end an 0-for-19 slump.

Drew Storen (1-2) pitched one inning for the win.

Chris Davis hit a two-run homer and Jonathan Schoop added a solo blast for the Orioles, who came in tied with Seattle for the major league lead with 89 home runs.

Blue Jays right-hander Marco Estrada held the Orioles without a hit for the first four innings after taking a no-hitter into the eighth inning against Boston in his previous start (see full recap).

Mets grab win over Brewers in 11 innings
MILWAUKEE -- Matt Reynolds drove home the go-ahead run in the 11th inning with a fielder's choice after a line drive up the middle hit off shortstop Jonathan Villar's glove, leading the New York Mets to a 2-1 victory on Friday night over the Milwaukee Brewers.

With the bases loaded, Reynolds hit a 1-0 slider from Blaine Boyer (1-1) on a line up the middle that glanced off Villar's glove. The deflection gave Asdrubal Cabrera enough time to dash home from third for a one-run lead.

Jeurys Familia held the Brewers hitless in the bottom of the 11th for his major league-leading 21st save in 21 opportunities. Jerry Blevins (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win.

Both teams squandered chances to end the game sooner. The late futility overshadowed a pitcher's duel between Milwaukee's Junior Guerra and resurgent Mets starter Matt Harvey, who struck out eight in six innings (see full recap).

Yankees blank Tigers for 5th straight victory
NEW YORK -- CC Sabathia kept up his recent resurgence with seven sharp innings, Brett Gardner sparked another scoring burst and the New York Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 4-0 on Friday night for their fifth straight win.

Carlos Beltran and Didi Gregorius each added two hits as the Yankees (31-30) moved over .500 for the first time since they were 4-3.

The Tigers began a 10-game trip by losing for the second straight time following a five-game winning streak.

Sabathia (4-4) gave up five singles, walked two and struck out four. He hasn't allowed more than two runs in his last six starts and left with a 2.28 ERA -- the lowest he's ever had after 10 starts or more in any season (see full recap).
