Pitching a Fit

Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1 : Pitching a Fit – In a tightly contested pitchers duel, Kevin Gausman gets just enough run support & the O’s win already win their fourth 1 run game of the year. The Birds score twice in the 5th against Jays starter Francisco Liriano, as Jonathan Schoop doubles to center to drive in C Wellington Castillo & scores on a single by J.J. Hardy to make it 2-0 Orioles. Liriano strikes out 10, as the Jays lefty was on his game, despite a bad 5th inning. He goes 6 2/3, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits, he walks 2. Gausman is just as dominant, going 6 innings, allowing 1 run on 5 hits, he walks 2 & strikes out 3. Zach Britton closes it out in the 9th for his 54th consecutive Save in a row. The Orioles have now defeated the Blue Jays for the third time in a row this year & their 6-2 record is all against the AL East. Baltimore is off to a strong start & sits all alone in 1st place.
