Toronto Continues Their Domination 5-0

W – Brad Mills (1-0)     L – Jeremy Guthrie (4-11)

Just when you didn’t think it couldn’t get any worse the Orioles get shut out by a rookie making his first start of the season. The same guy that had a 14.09 ERA in two starts with the Blue Jays last year kept the O’s off the board for 7 innings. We only had three hits in the game – a double by Ty Wiggington and singles by Brian Roberts and Jake Fox. Nick Markakis walked twice and Wiggington walked once. On the plus side Jeremy Guthrie continued his superb run since the all-star break giving up only an unearned run on 6 hits and a walk over 7 innings with 3 strikeouts. Once he came out of the game the Blue Jays exploded for four runs in the bottom of the 8th to ensure their victory. Koji Uehara got two outs but gave up a double. Will Ohman allowed that runner to score as well as three of his own on Lyle Overbay’s three run homer. The good news in all of this doesn’t even have to do with what happened on the field last night, but that multiple sources are reporting that Buck Showalter will be hired to manage the team on Monday and he will start on Tuesday. Apparently he will be signed through the 2013 season so the players will have a voice in the clubhouse that they know will be here for the long haul.

Player of the game: Jeremy Guthrie – 7 IP, 6 H, 0 ER, BB, 3 K (4.23 ERA)

Brian Matusz (3-11, 5.22) will kick off a four game series in Kansas City tonight against Kyle Davies (5-6, 5.52).
