Davis homers as Blue Jays complete sweep of Orioles

Rajai Davis hit one of Toronto's four solo home runs, pitcher Brandon Morrow left the game after being struck by a line drive and the Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-1 Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep.

Davis, the former New London High School and UConn-Avery Point star, put the Blue Jays in front with a leadoff homer to left in the third, one pitch after he was knocked down by an inside pitch on a bunt attempt.

Morrow suffered a bruised right shin when he was struck by Wilson Betemit's liner in the seventh, hopping around the mound in pain. Manager John Farrell and a trainer came out to check on Morrow and, following a brief discussion, supported him on either side as he limped off the field and into the dugout, disappearing down the steps to the clubhouse. X-rays were negative and the right-hander is day-to-day.

Morrow (6-3) was coming off the shortest start of his career, chased after 2-3 of an inning in last Friday's loss at Texas after giving up six runs and five hits.

He bounced back nicely against Baltimore.
