The Blue Jays put runners at second and third with two outs in the 13th but Wolf got Mark DeRosa to ground out.
Andrus walked to begin the 14th, stole second and went to third on Jurickson Profar’s sacrifice bunt, but Berkman and Adrian Beltre both grounded out.
“We kept putting ourselves in position to get something done and it didn’t happen,” Washington said. “But I’ll keep taking us putting ourselves in position. Pretty soon, we’ll break through.”
