Mexican pitcher Marco Estrada took the Toronto Bluejays to a 10-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles, getting his 12 victory in the current season.

The Rogers Centre saw the opener (12-8) pitching five innings for his first win in three starts. He allowed two runs and two hits, struck out four and walked four.

Toronto have slugged their way to baseball’s biggest turnaround in years.

Troy Tulowitzki, Mexican José Bautista and Kevin Pillar homered against Chris Tillman, and the Blue Jays beat the Orioles.

AL East-leading Toronto improved to 78-58, becoming the first team since the 2004 Astros to reach 20 games above .500 after having a losing record following the All Star break.

Toronto was 50-51 following a loss to Philadelphia on July 28, the day after the Blue Jays acquired Tulowitzki from Colorado. Two days later, Toronto added left-hander David Price in a deal with Detroit.

Tulowitzki and Bautista each had a two-run shot, and Pillar belted a solo drive. Josh Donaldson drove in two runs for the Blue Jays, raising his major league-leading total to 114 RBIs.

Toronto leads the majors with 189 homers and 746 runs. It has scored 10 or more 22 times this season, a club record.

The slumping Orioles lost for the 14th time in 17 games.

Tillman is 0-4 with a 15.50 ERA in five starts against Toronto this season and has given up nine home runs. He has fared even worse in three starts north of the border, allowing 19 runs. His ERA at Rogers Centre this season is 19.73.

In 21 starts against other opponents this season, Tillman is 9-7 with a 3.66 ERA, allowing nine home runs. He is 4-10 with a 6.02 ERA in 19 career starts against the Blue Jays.
