Wednesday’s game with the Toronto Blue Jays did not have the fireworks that Tuesday’s game did; it didn’t have a lot of hits either, at least as far as the Orioles were concerned. The Birds managed just three hits in a 4-1 loss to Toronto, dropping the series 3 games to 1.
An Anthony Santander (1 for 4, 1 Run Scored) single followed by a Ryan Mountcastle (1 for 4, 1 RBI) double in the first inning was the extent of Baltimore’s scoring.
Gunnar Henderson (0 for 2, 1 BB) walked following Santander’s run and then the next fourteen Baltimore batters were retired. The streak ended with Adley Rutschman’s (1 for 4) double in the sixth inning.
The final eleven Orioles batters were sat down in order.
Tyler Wells started and lasted 2.0 innings, allowing 1 run on 2 hits while walking 2 and striking out 1.
The pitcher of record was Dean Kremer (6-5) who allowed 3 runs, 2 earned, on 6 hits with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts over 5.1 innings.
2022 Record: 72-65, 4.5 GB Toronto for the third Wild Card spot.
Next Game: 9/9 vs. Boston @ 7:05 pm
