    Halladay matches club mark with 15th straight win

    TORONTO (AP) -- Roy Halladay won his 15th straight decision, pitching seven scoreless innings to lead the Toronto Blue Jays over the Baltimore Orioles 10-1 on Sunday.

    Halladay (15-2) matched the club record for consecutive wins set by Roger Clemens in 1998 and is the first major league pitcher to win 15 straight decisions since Clemens won 16 in a row for the New York Yankees in 2001.

    The 26-year-old right-hander became baseball's first 15-game winner. Halladay, pitching on three days' rest for the third time this season, allowed just two hits while striking out four and walking none.

    He hasn't lost in 20 starts since April 15 at Yankee Stadium.

    Carlos Delgado hit his AL-leading 30th home run, becoming the first Toronto player to hit 30 or more home runs in seven consecutive seasons.

    Aquilino Lopez pitched the final two innings to complete the three-hitter, giving up a home run to Larry Bigbie in the eighth.

    Delgado homered and hit an RBI double as the Blue Jays tied a season high with a seven-run fourth inning.

    Delgado led off with his homer, Tom Wilson hit an RBI single, and Mike Bordick and Vernon Wells each hit two-run doubles. Delgado's RBI double gave Toronto an 8-0 lead.

    Baltimore starter Rodrigo Lopez (3-6) tied a season high by allowing eight runs on eight hits in just 3 2/3 innings.

    Wells' 28th homer, a solo shot off Travis Driskill in the sixth, gave Toronto a 10-0 lead.
