Blue Jays sweep awful Orioles with pair of eighth inning homers

The farewell tributes to Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ will have to wait for another day.Or perhaps another season.On Sunday at the Rogers Centre, the big lefty and his team’s most reliable starter this season served up yet another solid performance in what will likely be his last home start for the Jays.Happ tamed the Orioles early to help set the stage for a late rally in which the Jays won 5-4 to finish off the three-game weekend sweep over their malodorous AL East companions.After a slow start to their day, the Jays offence picked it up with a four-run eighth inning on two-run homers from Randal Grichuk and Yangervis Solarte to secure the win over the awful O’s.In many ways, however, the game was about Happ, fresh off his big week in Washington for the MLB all-star festivities.
