Orioles hit four homers to power past Blue Jays

In his previous start, a no-decision against the New York Yankees, he allowed only one hit but walked seven.

The Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles got a bit of a scare Friday night - from home plate umpire Dale Scott.

One of the most shocking developments so far is the slow start of the Toronto Blue Jays, the only team in the league without at least two wins.

"It's weird how that works, right?"

"You get to answer questions and do things that an actual player would do coming through the minor leagues, such as the GMs will say something on the side and you answer it a certain way you want", he said, while virtually catching a flyball of mine after I somehow made contact with the ball after one of his pitches. It's a long season and we're only in the second week of it- for this team to be competitive down the stretch they will need a healthy Donaldson to help them.

Whatever residue was left from his horrid first start in Tampa (five runs allowed in 0.2 of an inning for an ERA of 135), Liriano quickly washed away against the first-place Orioles.

"When you leave balls over the middle of the plate to a good-hitting team like them, that's what they do with them", Sanchez said. When I know they're not trying to pitch to me, don't chase stuff and get myself out. "It was just one of those nights". Prior to Justin Smoak's homer in the fourth, the Jays had hit just four out the park this season.

A one-out single by Schoop spelled the end for Sanchez (0-1).

After Gausman left, Darren O'Day and Brad Brach each worked a scoreless inning. Elite setup man Brad Brach struck out 18 Jays in 13.1 innings.

Closing arguments today in Aaron Hernandez double murder trial
BOSTON (AP) — The defense has rested its case in the double-murder trial of former National Football League star Aaron Hernandez. Lawyers for Hernandez called their final witnesses without having the ex-New England Patriot testify in his own defense.

Smith's blast was his second homer of the season.

Liriano faltered in the fifth against the bottom of the Baltimore order, giving up two runs on four straight hits to open the inning: three singles and a Jonathan Schoop double.

NOTES: Toronto LF Ezequiel Carrera was inserted into the leadoff spot and went 0-for-4, while 2B Devon Travis was dropped to the No. 9 spot and was 0-for-3.

Baltimore took a 1-0 lead in the second when Davis scored on a wild pitch. And in the six, Chris Davis launched a rocket deep over the centre-field fence to increase the Orioles lead.

The pain keeps growing for the Blue Jays. He struck out 10 and gave up two runs and five hits in 6 2-3 innings.

Once his neck was immobilized on a spinal board, Scott was lifted onto a cart and driven off the field and taken to a hospital. And the Jays may have lost star third baseman Josh Donaldson, who limped off in the sixth inning after aggravating a chronic calf injury running out an RBI double.

Britton escaped a nervy ninth inning and the Orioles handed the Blue Jays their sixth straight defeat, 2-1 on Thursday night.

With that, the calf injury or injuries that have hounded the Jays third baseman since the first week of spring training suddenly appear that much more serious. Coghlan is expected to share third base with Ryan Goins and Darwin Barney.

Baltimore acquired left-hander Paul Fry from Seattle in exchange for an global signing slot and assigned him to Triple-A Norfolk.
