Baltimore closer Jim Johnson has blown more saves in the past two weeks than he did in all of 2012.
Munenori Kawasaki hit a game-ending two-run double off Johnson in a four-run ninth inning, lifting the Toronto Blue Jays to a 6-5 victory over the Orioles on Sunday.
''We should be getting on the plane with three wins here, but I can't hang my head too long,'' Johnson said. ''It's going to hurt for a little bit, and it should.''
Johnson (2-5) snapped a string of three straight blown saves by shutting the door on Toronto in Saturday's 6-5 win. But when he opened it a crack in this one, the Blue Jays barged right through.
''He made a lot of good pitches,'' Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of Johnson. ''He just kind of painted himself in a corner there and we just couldn't get it done.''
Trailing 5-2 to begin the ninth, the Blue Jays got a leadoff double from Edwin Encarnacion, a single from Adam Lind and an RBI single by J.P. Arencibia.
