Orioles beat Blue Jays 5-2, near AL East title

BALTIMORE (AP) The Baltimore Orioles moved to the brink of claiming their first AL East title in 17 years, using a resilient pitching performance by Wei-Yin Chen to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 Monday night.

Baltimore can clinch the division crown with a win over Toronto on Tuesday. That would assure the Orioles their second playoff berth in three years following a run of 14 consecutive losing seasons.

Baltimore (90-60) leads the AL East by 12 1/2 games, its biggest advantage since 1979.
