BALTIMORE -- It sure didn't take long for Adam Lind to get back in the swing of things for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Playing in his second game since returning from lengthy stay on the disabled list, Lind went 4 for 4 with two homers and three RBI to carry Toronto past the Baltimore Orioles 7-4 on Sunday.

Lind missed nearly a month with a sore back before being activated from the DL on Friday night. After going hitless on Saturday, he singled twice and hit solo homers in the fifth and seventh innings Sunday.

"When you look at today's game, it looks like he hasn't even missed any time," Toronto manager John Farrell said. "What a beautiful swing. ... He was on every pitch today."

It was Lind's second multihomer game of the season and the sixth of his career. Eight of his nine home runs have come in his last 13 games.

"I felt good today. I didn't miss my pitches," Lind said. "It was just nice to feel good all game."

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.

Jo-Jo 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. The left-hander walked four and struck out three.

"Another solid day for Jo-Jo," Farrell said.

After going through a long stretch of futility, Reyes hopes to start a winning streak of similar duration.

"Hopefully 28 starts," he said with a laugh. "It felt good today, and as long as I keep up the quality starts I know it's going to come."

Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie (2-8) yielded six runs and nine hits in five innings. The right-hander gave up at least one hit in every inning, and the two homers he allowed were twice the total of his previous three starts.

"It was just one of those days when you don't feel like you have it all together," Guthrie said. "I had no command down. I could throw strikes, but they were typically up."

Guthrie retired the first two batters before Jose Bautista walked, hustled to third on a single by Lind and scored on a single by Aaron Hill.

"My warmup pitches went well, as well as my pregame routine," Guthrie said. "I had it for four pitches; two outs on four pitches. The next 85 didn't go as successfully as those first few."

Baltimore used an RBI double by Vladimir Guerrero and a run-scoring groundout by Derrek Lee to take a 2-1 lead in the bottom half.

In the third inning, Corey Patterson singled and Bautista walked before Lind tied it with an RBI single.

Escobar made it 5-2 in the fourth with his seventh home run, a drive to left with two on and two outs. He hit four homers last season.

Notes

  • Baltimore was outscored 27-9 in the first inning before Sunday.
  • Bautista has reached base via hit, walk or HBP in 48 of 51 games this season.
  • Toronto is 17-4 against Baltimore since the start of the 2010 season.
