beat Baltimore 6-5 on Tuesday night, handing the Orioles their sixth straight loss.
Hill, who hit a solo home run, reached 100 RBIs for the first time in his career.
''Nothing like a game-winning RBI to get your 100th,''
said. ''That's great for him. He's a kid that plays hard every day for you.''
Hill was relieved to reach the century mark after going six games without an RBI.
''It was a nice hit,'' Hill said. ''It's something you're not really trying to get to but it's in the back of your head. It's
nice to get it over with and just play.''

loaded the bases with a single through the left side. Johnson's next pitch hit Bautista on the left elbow, bringing home the
tying run and giving Johnson his sixth blown save.
''I still believe I can do the job but the last couple of outings haven't gone my way,'' said Johnson, who has blown saves
in two of his past three outings. ''I've got to try and right the ship here shortly.''
Johnson sent it to extra innings by striking out Hill and Encarnacion.
Toronto loaded the bases in the 10th but

There were gasps when Hill, limited to 55 games last season because of a concussion, was hit on the left shoulder by a pitch
in the eighth. Two pitches later, Encarnacion homered to left.
''The home run ball kind of gave them a spark and got them back in it,'' Orioles manager Dave Trembley said.
Baez acknowledged being shaken up after losing his grip and nearly beaning Hill.
''That ball was really close to his face,'' Baez said. ''It really had me scrambling a little bit when the ball left my hand.''
Baltimore's bullpen has allowed 15 earned runs in 16 innings over the past four games.
''Baez had an opportunity to hold the lead and he didn't,'' Trembley said. ''JJ had an opportunity to close it and he didn't.
I'm sure they feel absolutely terrible and no one feels worse about it than I do.''
