(AP) The Toronto Blue Jays eliminated Baltimore from the playoff hunt Tuesday night, using two clutch RBI singles by Mark DeRosa to beat the Orioles 3-2 in 10 innings.


Baltimore's sixth straight loss, combined with Cleveland's comeback win over the Chicago White Sox, left the Orioles six games behind the Indians for the final wild-card slot with five games left.


DeRosa singled in the tying run in the eighth inning and put the Blue Jays ahead in the 10th.


Sergio Santos (1-1) worked a perfect ninth and Casey Janssen got three outs for his 34th save.


Jose Reyes drew a one-out walk in the Toronto 10th off Francisco Rodriguez (2-1) and Munenori Kawasaki singled. Reyes appeared to be picked off second but was called safe, drawing Orioles manager Buck Showalter out to argue the call. Brett Lawrie then hit into a fielder's choice and DeRosa singled to right.
