Orioles are swept in a four-game series in Toronto
The Baltimore Orioles got swept in a four-game series vs Toronto, after just starting a rare win streak of two games vs the Mets. The Orioles offense once again was limited to its highlight homers and limited runs throughout all four games.
Orioles- 4 vs Blue Jays- 5
Orioles look to have a commanding lead and looked to have a three game winning streak in grasp, until the bottom of the ninth. David Hess has continued his great rookie season, throwing 6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, and 4 K. Orioles offense even did their job, Machado hit a sacrifice fly to give the Orioles a 1-0 lead. Then the homers came, Austin Wynns homered in the seventh then Danny Valenica and Mark Trumbo homered in the eighth. Brad Brach then came on with a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the ninth. Brach blew the save, Toronto tied the game 4-4 and then Diaz singled off Castro to walk it off and giving the Blue Jays the win.
Orioles- 1 vs Blue Jays- 5
After that heartbreaking loss nothing was expected from the Orioles. Nothing was produced either, after scoring in the second off a Trey Mancini’s fielders choice to give the Orioles a 1-0 lead early. Andrew Cashner battled once again going 6 IP, 9 H, 3 ER, and 4 K. The Blue Jays never let the Orioles get the lead back and went on to win after three homers lead them.
Orioles- 3 vs Blue Jays- 4
As for the Orioles fans, I too believe maybe they will come out and show some heart after a tough start to the four game series in Toronto. Once again this ended not as the Orioles wanted or the fans. Kevin Gausman threw 6.2 IP, 9 H, 3 ER, and 6 K.
The Orioles didn’t come out getting the lead early but they did fight back in the game and later tie it in the eighth. Adam Jones singled to right to score the Orioles first two runs, Schoop later scored on a wild-pitch from Clippard. Just as Thursday ended, the Blue Jays did again to the Orioles and walked it off in the tenth inning when Givens walked in the winning run on four pitches.
Orioles- 3 vs Blue Jays- 13
This game was over before it even started, after three tough loses for the birds the team looked asleep on Sunday. Trey Mancini did his best to wake up the troops homering in the second to give the Orioles their only lead of the game at 1-0. Then came the Blue Jays and they came at Cobb fast, just throwing 3.2 IP, 11 H, 9 ER, 5 K.
The Orioles offense didn’t do much to help only having seven hits to Toronto’s nineteen. As well as only scoring three runs to the Blue Jays thirteen.
