Jose Bautista hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning and the Blue Jays topped the Baltimore Orioles 4-2 on Saturday for their 10th straight victory.

With the win, the Blue Jays are now 14-4 this month. 

Darren Oliver (3-1) earned the win after pitching the eighth inning.  Orioles catcher Taylor Teagarden tied the game at 2 by hitting a solo shot off Oliver.  Bautista saved him with a two-run blast that but the team ahead for good. 

The win streak is the team’s longest since they won 10 in a row back in 2008.  The AL East currently has all five of its teams with records of .500 or better.
