The Orioles Are Swept In A DH


Saturday’s double-header with the Blue Jays resulted in two losses for the Baltimore Orioles. Toronto won game one 11-10 and then followed that up with an 11-2 win in game two.

Game one saw the Orioles take a first inning lead that the Birds from Baltimore extended every time the Blue Jays started to get close and grew to 10-5 after 4 innings. Six unanswered runs by the Blue Jays over the final three innings gave the Blue Jays the win. The winning blow came when George Springer hit a two-run homerun in the ninth inning off of reliever Tyler Wells (1.1 IP, 4 R, 3 H, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 WP).

Austin Hays (2 for 5, 2 runs scored, 3 RBI) extended his hitting streak to 17 games with two homeruns.

Anthony Santander (3 for 4, 3 runs scored, 2 RBI) and Ryan Mountcastle (1 for 5, 1 run scored, 1 RBI) also hit homeruns.
