TORONTO -- Hyun Soo Kim said hed never hit a bigger home run. Tuukka Rask Bruins Jersey .His timely drive gave Baltimores wild-card hopes a big boost.Kim hit a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth inning off Roberto Osuna, and the Orioles beat Toronto 3-2 on Wednesday night to move within one game of the AL wild card-leading Blue Jays.Its hard to describe, Kim said through a translator. Its just such a great feeling.With Toronto ahead 2-1, Jonathan Schoop singled with one out, pinch-runner Michael Bourn stole second and Kim homered on a 3-2 pitch into the visiting bullpen in right, causing the Orioles relievers to jump in celebration.Everyone in the dugout was going nuts, slugger Mark Trumbo said.Kim is 6 for 9 with two walks as a pinch hitter.Were lucky to have a guy hitting .300 come off the bench, manager Buck Showalter said. We felt like hed give us a good at bat.Baltimore right-hander Chris Tillman said the dramatic victory could provide the Orioles with some much-needed momentumI think that could push a team a long way, those kind of wins, Tillman said. It was a big team win and everybody played a part in it.Osuna (3-3) has five blown save chances, including two in his last three appearances.I feel good, Im not worried at all, he said. My fastball just stayed down the middle, and he took advantage of it.Trumbo hit his major league-leading 46th home run, a solo drive off Jason Grilli in the eighth. Sacrifice flies by Edwin Encarnacion in the first and Kevin Pillar in the second had built a 2-0 lead.I thought Trums home run kind of got some positive vibes back in the game, Showalter said.Brian Duensing (1-0) got one out, and Zach Britton finished for his 47th save in as many tries.Zach came in there and didnt let the momentum get away from us, Showalter said.Blue Jays left-hander Francisco Liriano struck out 10 over six shutout innings. Toronto starters have allowed one earned run or none in a team record seven straight games.Liriano was perfect until Adam Jones singled to begin the fourth. Davis followed with a single by Liriano struck out the next three batters. Baltimore loaded the bases with two outs in the fifth but Davis took a called third strike.Liriano left to a standing ovation after Jonathan Schoops single put runners at first and second in the seventh. Brett Cecil came on and struck out Nolan Reimold before Troy Tulowitzki went deep into the hole to shortstop hole to retire Jones on a groundout.Tillman allowed two runs -- one earned -- and six hits in 5 2/3 innings. He has a 2-6 with a 7.01 ERA in 13 career starts in Toronto.My fastball command wasnt there again, Tillman said, but we were able to make some big pitches with the offspeed stuff and limit the damage.LOSING IT LATEToronto has blown a lead in the ninth inning three times in four games, losing twice in that span.PUT A LID ON ITThe stadium roof, which was partially open when the game began, slid shut in the second inning because of an expected thunderstorm.TRAINERS ROOMBlue Jays: 2B Devon Travis (left shoulder) did not start for the second straight game. Travis jammed his surgically repaired shoulder in Mondays benches-clearing brawl with New York. Ryan Goins started at second.UP NEXTRHP Ubaldo Jimenez (7-12, 5.71) starts for the Orioles in Thursdays series finale, with RHP Marcus Stroman (9-9, 4.34) set to pitch for the Blue Jays. Stroman is 0-4 in seven starts since beating Houston on Aug. 14 but has allowed more than three earned runs just once in that span. Jimenez is 1/3 with an 8.41 ERA in six career games in Toronto. Brandon Carlo Bruins Jersey . Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot. American Kevin Streelman was in second place after shooting a 69. Adam Oates Jersey . -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. India 455 and 204 (Kohli 81, Broad 4-33, Rashid 4-82) lead England 255 (Stokes 70, Bairstow 53, Root 53, Ashwin 5-67) by 404 runs Scorecard and ball-by-ball detailsStuart Broad led Englands fight on the fourth morning at Visakhapatnam with a valiant eight-over spell of skilfully varied legcutters, while Adil Rashid picked off four wickets with his legspin, including the key scalp of Virat Kohli for 81. However, a spiky tenth-wicket stand of 42 in 9.4 overs between Jayant Yadav and Mohammad Shami carried India to a psychologically imposing lead of 404, on a pitch that is now beginning to misbehave appreciably.Still, England will take even the pyrrhic victories as they settle into the sort of mindset that they will need if they are to salvage this match and the series, and in claiming seven wickets, irrespective of the match situation, this was still their session.It began with India on 98 for 3, with Kohli ominously placed on 56 not out, and targeting his second century of an outstanding captains performance. But following on from his defiant opening gambit on the third afternoon, and buoyed by the confirmation that his foot injury is not as severe as he might have feared, Broad produced one of his most skilful spells of a stellar year, manipulating the old ball with cut and cross-seamers, and a variety of angles on the crease, to prise out two vital wickets, and come close to several more.His first victim was Ajinkya Rahane, who was never allowed to settle in the course of his 26. Lined up by Broads angle into the toes and sharp jag away, he was beaten by some fierce lift on a good length, and spliced a looping edge to Alastair Cook at slip.One over later, R Ashwin was given a brief reprieve when umpire Rod Tucker failed to spot a thick inside-edge as Broad jagged one back into his pads - the lbw verdict was over-turned by DRS. However, he had added just one more single when Broad found his edge again - the outside one this time - for Jonny Bairstow to gather a thin snick behind the stumps. Jakub Zboril Bruins Jersey. Rashid by now had replaced James Anderson at the opposite end, and picked up where he had left off in his previous spells of an encouraging allround display. He was unafraid to toss the ball up, knowing that India would have to come after him if they wanted to press their innings on, and that gave his variations a chance to grip and bite.Wriddhiman Saha fell to his first ball from Rashid, a well-disguised googly that would have been clipping leg stump, and though Ravindra Jadeja got hold of one mighty swing for six over long-on, even Kohli found Rashids sharp turn hard to dominate. An ambitious drive outside off took a thick and fast edge, whereupon Ben Stokes took off at slip to cling onto a photographers dream of a catch, high to his right in one hand.Broad, who had come close to pinning Kohli lbw in his previous over, was then edged low through the slips for four by Jayant Vadav to signal the end of his stint, but Rashid was not yet done. Jadejas aggression proved his downfall as picked out Moeen Ali at deep midwicket before Bairstow pulled off his most impressive take of the match to dismiss Umesh Yadav, a fast and high edge off another Rashid legbreak that all but lodged in his armpit.However Jayant, continuing his impressive allround game, kept England waiting as lunch was delayed in pursuit of the tenth wicket, and Englands frustrations were visible when Shami joined in the fun, hoisting Rashid for two towering sixes in his 19 from 22 balls. It took a change of bowling to end the fun, with Moeen Ali striking with his first delivery to have Shami stumped with his toe on the crease.
