The Toronto Blue Jays scored the tie-breaking run on a throwing error in the top of the 10th inning and held on to beat the host Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit a shot that Orioles first baseman Chris Davis dove and stopped. While still on the ground, Davis tried to throw out Travis Shaw at the plate, but the throw was wild, and the Jays took an 8-7 lead off Cole Sulser (1-2).

Anthony Bass (1-0) received the win for Toronto.

Randal Grichuk drove in four runs for a second straight night, including a two-run homer. Shaw hit a three-run homer and knocked in three.

Toronto right-hander Nate Pearson and Baltimore left-hander Wade LeBlanc each received a no-decision. Both went four innings and allowed five runs.

Anthony Santander gave the Orioles a 2-0 lead in the first with a two-run homer, the first of his two homers for the game. He has now hit safely in 13 straight games.

The Blue Jays tied the game on the Grichuk homer in the third, before Santander put the Orioles in front with a solo shot in the bottom of the frame to make it 3-2.

Grichuk also came through again in the fifth, delivering a two-run double. Shaw stretched the lead to 7-3 with his three-run shot as part of that five-run inning.

Baltimore cut into the lead in the bottom half of the inning, when Chance Sisco hit a two-run homer to slice the margin to 7-5. Later in the inning, Renato Nunez made it 7-6 with a sacrifice fly.

The Orioles tied the game in the seventh when Hanser Alberto drove in a run with an infield single with the bases loaded.

The Orioles lost a key player Tuesday when they put shortstop Jose Iglesias on the 10-day injured list due to a sore left quad.

To take Iglesias' roster spot, Baltimore recalled infielder Ramon Urias from the alternate training site.
