TORONTO -- Torontos bullpen is beginning to sag as the Blue Jays try to clinch the first American League wild-card spot.It could not come at a worse time but it has given the Baltimore Orioles some hope.The Orioles scored three times in the final two innings against the Blue Jays bullpen Wednesday to earn a 3-2 victory that moved them to within one game of Toronto for the first wild card.The teams will play the rubber match of the three-game series Thursday at Rogers Centre and it could be a pivotal game to determine home-field advantage in the wild-card game.Each team enters Thursday with four games remaining in the regular season.Ubaldo Jimenez (7-12, 5.71 ERA) will start for the Orioles and Marcus Stroman (9-9, 4.34 ERA) will start for the Blue Jays.The Blue Jays appeared poised to open a three-game lead on Wednesday as they held a 2-0 advantage after seven innings.Then the bullpen sprung leaks.Jason Grilli gave up a solo homer to Mark Trumbo in the eighth and pinch hitter Hyun Soo Kim hit a two-run homer against closer Roberto Osuna in the ninth.It was big, said Orioles starter Chris Tillman, who did not factor in the decision. I think that could push a team a long way in wins. It was a big team win and I think everyone played a part in it.This is a very tough place to play, Trumbo said. The fans, theyre always giving it to you and theyre very passionate. Sometimes its tough to get something going, but a moment like that, that was big for us.The Blue Jays suffered a blow this week when Joaquin Benoit suffered a torn calf muscle as he ran from the bullpen to participate in the melee with the New York Yankees on Monday. The Blue Jays would have to play deep into October before Benoit, who has been a key performer in the seventh inning, could return.It is going to put pressure on the rest of the bullpen and the early results are not encouraging.Grilli, who has been the eighth-inning reliever, has a 9.15 ERA in 11 September outings. He has allowed five runs in his past two outings, a total of one inning.Osuna has an 8.10 ERA over his past six outings. He is 1-1 with two saves and two blown saves.I feel good. Im not worried at all, Osuna said. Were going to be fine. Were playing against the best teams in the major leagues in our division and stuff like today it happens sometimes. But Im not worried at all and I think were going to be in a good position for the next four games.Brett Cecil might become a key performer in the remaining games and he pitched a solid inning Wednesday.Stroman will be looking for his first win since Aug. 14 Thursday.In seven starts since his last win, he is 0-4 with a 3.32 ERA and the team is 2-5. He held the Yankees to one hit, three walks and no runs over seven innings Saturday but did not factor into the decision in the game won on Jose Bautistas three-run homer in the eighth. Stroman is 1-1 with a 7.88 ERA in three starts this season against the Orioles. In six career games, including five starts, against Baltimore, he is 2-2 with a 5.29 ERA.Jimenez will be trying for his third win in September, and his third win since the All-Star break, on Thursday. He is 2/3 with one save and a 3.17 ERA in 11 games, including seven starts, since the All-Star break. He is 2-1 with a 2.88 ERA in four starts in September. In four game (three starts) against the Blue Jays this season, he is 0-1 with a 9.42 ERA.

If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency.NEW YORK -- Even when things are starting to fall into place for the surging New York Mets, another impactful injury casted a dark cloud over what should have been a jubilant clubhouse following one of the biggest wins of the year.After Kelly Johnsons three-run double in the eighth inning broke a tie and lifted the Mets to a 5-2 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night, manager Terry Collins announced that second baseman Neil Walker would probably opt for season-ending surgery on a herniated disc in his back.After all the evidence has been gathered, he thinks thats where hes probably headed, Collins said.Walker is expected to address the media on Thursday.Already without Matt Harvey (thoracic outlet syndrome) for the remainder of the year and with lingering injuries to Noah Syndergaard (bone spur), Steven Matz (shoulder/elbow), Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) and Yoenis Cespedes (quad), losing Walker comes at an inopportune moment. The Mets have won 10 of their last 13 to climb back into the thick of the National League wild card race.This year, Walker has been a part of this team, its a shame, infielder Wilmer Flores said. Weve had a lot of injuries but we have to keep playing with what we have.Cespedes singled off A.J. Ramos (1-2) to start the winning rally. Curtis Granderson walked. Flores flew out to center, advancing a hustling Cespedes to third. After Jay Bruce flew out to right, Travis dArnaud walked to load the bases, bringing up Johnson.Johnson, who was 25-for-79 with the bases loaded in his career with 74 RBI, drove the ball into the right field corner. He emphatically clapped his hands and swung his arms into the air after reaching second base.I cant explain the importance of having a veteran player who has been through many, many different situations, who can come off the bench and be a big hitter in big situations, Collins said.The victory gave New York a 15-14 record in August, the first winning month for the team this season. Theyve moved to within 1 1/2 games of St. Louis for the NLs second Wild Card.Addison Reed (4-2) pitched a perfect eighth inning for the win. Jeurys Familia closed for his 44th save, establishing a new franchise record.Ramos also blew the save in Mondays series-opener.I threw a slider that I was trying to make it around the zone and he took advaantage of it, he said.dddddddddddd He did what hes supposed to do with that in a big situation.Christian Yelich homered for Miami, who dropped its fifth consecutive game.New York had plenty of opportunities against starter Jake Esch, who was making his major league debut. After a pair of strikeouts in the first inning, Esch allowed four consecutive baserunners in the second, including Flores 15th home run. He pitched himself of out trouble in the fourth by inducing a double play from Mets starter Bartolo Colon.The Marlins caught a break when 42-year old Ichiro Suzuki leaped above the center field wall to take a potential two-run homer away from Curtis Granderson in the fifth.With New York already leading 2-1 and runners on first and second, All-Star Marcell Ozuna made a diving catch on Flores sinking line drive to end the third inning. After initially stepping to his left, Ozuna quickly changed direction, ranging to his right and made a nifty grab before tumbling over. He rolled over several times before coming to a stop.Ozuna was removed from the game in the next inning. X-rays were negative and is day-to-day.TRAINERS ROOM:Marlins: RHP David Phelps, originally scheduled to start Wednesdays game, was placed on the 15-day DL with a strained oblique. He suffered the injury on his first swing during pitchers batting practice on Tuesday.UP NEXT:Mets: RHP Jacob deGrom (7-7, 2.96 ERA) pitches the series finale. deGrom (rest) was scheduled to pitch in Fridays opener against Washington after a nine-day layoff, but was moved up a day with Matz not yet ready to come off of the disabled list.Marlins: RHP Jose Urena (2-5, 5.83 ERA) opposes deGrom. Hes lost four of six starts since moving to the Marlins rotation on July 19.MAKING MOVES:The Mets announced two transactions after the game. First, they acquired 31-year old reliever Fernando Salas from the Anaheim Angels for pitcher Erik Manoah. Salas was 3-6 with a 4.47 ERA with the Angels but has four saves and a 2.93 ERA since the All-Star Game. Manoah was 5-5 with Class-A Brooklyn. OF Justin Ruggiano was moved to the 60-day DL to make room. The team also traded minor league catcher Nevin Ashley to Texas for cash. ' ' '
