BALTIMORE — Adam Lind went 4 for 4 with two homers and three RBIs to back another winning effort by left-hander Jo-Jo Reyes, and the Toronto Blue Jays roughed up Jeremy Guthrie in a 7-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday.

Yunel Escobar also homered and Edwin Encarnacion had three hits for the Blue Jays, who took two of three from the last-place Orioles.

Baltimore has lost seven of nine since reaching the .500 mark on May 26. Mark Reynolds hit his second homer in two games and Robert Andino had two of the Orioles' six hits.

Reyes (2-4) allowed three runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings to earn his second straight victory after going 28 consecutive starts without a win. He walked four and struck out three.
