Reliever Mychal Givens (2-5) struck out three and allowed one hit in 1 1/3 innings to earn the win.

Paul Fry pitched around a single in the ninth to pick up his third save.

Buddy Boshers (0-1) allowed two runs in the seventh to take the loss for the Blue Jays, whose five-game win streak ended.

Freddy Galvis and Reese McGuire homered for Toronto.

Orioles right-hander Dylan Bundy allowed two runs, five hits and one walk while striking out seven in 5 1/3 innings.

Toronto left-hander Thomas Pannone struck out a career-best nine over six innings in allowing four runs, four hits and one walk.

Toronto scored in the first when Bo Bichette led off with a double and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a two-out line drive to left field that Anthony Santander misplayed into a double.

The Orioles had a runner at second in the bottom of the first on an error when Mancini’s routine fly ball hit right fielder Derek Fisher on the right cheek bone. Fisher left the game with a contusion and Brandon Drury took over in right. Pannone pitched around the miscue.

Galvis hit his 18th homer of the season in the third.

The Orioles scored four in the fifth. Villar led off with his 14th homer of the season and Stevie Wilkerson and Hanser Alberto singled before Mancini hit his 26th homer.

Shawn Armstrong allowed a single in the seventh and was replaced by Richard Bleier, who allowed McGuire’s first homer this season to tie the score at 4. Bichette singled and was out at home trying to score on a double to the left field corner by Galvis. Bichette was originally called safe but was ruled out on a review.

Boshers allowed a walk to Chris Davis and a double to Wilkerson to open the seventh and was replaced by Justin Shafer, who yielded Alberto’s one-out RBI single and Mancini’s RBI groundout.
