The Youngsters and the 'Pen Come Through: Orioles Defeat Blue Jays, 8-6

Not much has gone right for the Orioles in the past month; however, they were able to get a series win in Toronto. At this point of the season, the young guys are trying to make a name for themselves, and on Sunday, one won the game for the team.

On Sunday, Baltimore beat the Blue Jays, 8-6, in the 12th inning thanks to single by Scott Moore. Alas, the bullpen came up strong on Sunday, as the relief core kept the Orioles in the game and delivered perhaps one of their best performances of the past few months.

On top of the win, Nick Markakis, who is having a solid year, passed a couple of milestones. First, he hit his 20th home run and second, he drove in his 100th RBI, both tops on the team.

The Orioles take on the New York Yankees in the Bronx this week for a tough three game series.


The Baltimore Sun has a recap of the game, as does the Baltimore Examiner, Oriole Magic and the Orioles MLB site. Roch Kubatko has his thoughts on yesterday’s game.

Well, Orioles first base coach Sam Mejias will not be coming back to the organization and much of it may be due to the disarray of the team.
