TORONTO - Kevin Gausman pitched seven sharp innings as the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1 on Wednesday to snap a six-game losing streak.

Gausman (11-10) allowed one run on six hits, struck out six, walked one and hit a batter to improve to 3-0 against the Blue Jays this season.

Closer Zach Britton bounced back after blowing a one-run lead in Toronto's 3-2 walkoff victory on Tuesday night. He worked around a one-out single for his 14th save.

Adam Jones drove in a run on a double and Trey Mancini followed with an RBI triple for the Orioles (72-74), who scored two unearned runs on Marcus Stroman (11-8) in the first inning.

Baltimore Orioles activated RHP Kevin Gausman from the 15-day disabled list. Named a top 100 overall prospect in baseball by Baseball Prospectus (10), ESPN.com (23) and MLB.com (31).

Gausman (11-10) allowed one run and six hits, improving to 3-0 with a 1.51 ERA in six starts against the Blue Jays this season, as the Orioles won for the first time since Sept. 5 against the Yankees. Box score: Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1.

Stroman allowed six hits along with the two unearned runs over 92 pitches in six innings of work. He also walked three and struck out seven.

The outing could have been much worse for Stroman.

The 26-year-old right-hander appeared to run into trouble in the fourth when a lead-off double and two walks loaded the bases with no out. But a strikeout and a double play ended the threat and Stroman celebrated by pounding his chest and shouting as he skipped off the field.

Then in the sixth inning, Stroman received a mound visit from head trainer George Poulis after he shook out his hand following a pitch. Stroman stayed in the game, walking the next batter before getting another double play to escape the inning.

Stroman had to leave his last start against the Orioles on Sept. 2 after 1 2/3 innings when he was struck on the elbow by a Mark Trumbo liner.

TORONTO (AP) Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman didn't expect his team's struggling offense to produce much against Blue Jays ace Marcus Stroman.

Gausman won for the first time in four starts, Mark Trumbo hit an RBI double and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Rookie Richard Urena had a run-scoring double for Blue Jays (68-78), extending his hit streak to six games. The 21-year-old shortstop came into Wednesday's contest batting .429 over the homestand.

The loss was Toronto's first in five games.

Jones put Baltimore on the board in the first inning with a double that plated Tim Beckham, who had reached on a throwing error to Josh Donaldson on the first pitch of the game. Jones then scored on Mancini's triple for a 2-0 lead.

Urena pulled the Jays within one in the third with his RBI double that dropped between third baseman Manny Machado and left-fielder Mancini, scoring fellow rookie Teoscar Hernandez from third base.

Russell Martin received a warm ovation from the crowd of 31,714 in his first at-bat in the second inning. It was Martin's first game since Aug. 11 when he injured his left oblique. He was 0 for 3.
