Toronto Sweeps O’s; Four Game Losing Streak

Game 1: Orioles 4, Blue Jays 6

W – Brett Cecil (14-7)     L – Chris Tillman (1-5)     SV – Jesse Carlson (1)

– Chris Tillman gave up 5 runs on 4 hits and a walk with 3 strikeouts but at least he was able to make it through 6 innings. Its a small victory but he has a ways to go and its nice to see improvement, no matter how small.
– David Hernandez pitched a scoreless 7th inning, striking out two. Matt Albers gave up a run on a hit and two walks to start the 8th, only getting one out, but Mark Hendrickson finished the inning.
– The O’s lashed out with 16 hits but only managed to score 4 runs. Nick Markakis, Ty Wiggington, and Nolan Reimold each had three hits in the game, all singles except for Markakis’ 44th double.
– Brian Roberts singled and doubled, Brandon Snyder singled and doubled, and Craig Tatum singled twice. Corey Patterson hit a pinch hit double for Snyder, his 15th of the season.

Player of the game: Nick Markakis – 3-5, R, RBI, double (44) (.293 AVG)

Game 2: Orioles 4, Blue Jays 5

W – David Purcey (1-1)     L – Mark Hendrickson (1-6)

– Jeremy Guthrie righted the ship a little bit but gave up three homeruns. His final line was 6.1 innings, 7 innings, 4 runs, and 6 strikeouts. Not terrible but not good enough on this night.
– Mike Gonzalez finished the 7th inning for Guthrie. Jim Johnson pitched two scoreless innings to send it to extras and Koji Uehara pitched a scoreless 10th. Unfortunately Mark Hendrickson only got to throw two pitches before he served  up the game winning homerun to Lyle Overbay.
– Ty Wiggington hit his 22nd homerun of the season, a solo shot, in the 7th inning to give the O’s a very brief lead.
– Brandon Snyder hit an RBI double and Jake Fox singled and doubled. Brian Roberts singled, walked twice, and stole his 12th base of the season.
– Nick Markakis hit an RBI single and walked. Adam Jones and Cesar Izturis each singled in the game.

Player of the game: Ty Wiggington – 1-4, BB, solo HR (22) (.255 AVG)

Game 3: Orioles 2, Blue Jays 5

W – Shaun Marcum (13-8)     L – Rick VandenHurk (0-1)     SV – Jason Frasor (4)

– Rick VandenHurk made his first start as an Oriole, giving up 3 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks with 5 strikeouts over 4 innings. Hes going to have to do better than that to get a shot at making the pitching staff next year.
– Alfredo Simon got one out in the 5th inning before being thrown out of the game for hitting Jose Bautista with a pitch. It was the second time in the game Bautista was hit. Simon got a three game suspension and Buck Showalter received a one game suspension of his own.
– Matt Albers gave up two runs over 1.2 innings spanning the 5th and 6th innings. David Hernandez continued his recent success by throwing scoreless innings in the 7th and 8th.
– The Orioles only runs came on a single by Adam Jones (he had three in the game, as well as his 6th stolen base) and a Matt Wieters sacrifice fly.
– Ty Wiggington and Luke Scott each singled and walked, Scott was also hit by a pitch. Robert Andino and Cesar Izturis also singled in the game.

Player of the game: Adam Jones – 3-4, R, RBI, SB (6) (.284 AVG)
