Thornton In Their Side

Blue Jays 6, Orioles 1 : Thornton In Their Side – Trent Thornton pitches 6 shutout innings to earn his first win in 4 starts, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. homers & the Blue Jays beat the O’s @ home to avoid the sweep. Thornton allows just 3 hits & strikes out 5, winning for the first time since June 16. Gurriel Jr. hits a 2-run shot (#16) off of O’s starter Asher Wojciechowski in the 1st,
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has 2 hits & scores on doubles by Danny Jansen in the 4th & Rowdy Tellez in the 6th.
Tellez also scores on a 2-run infield single by Teoscar Hernandez as the Jays add to their lead against reliever Shawn Armstrong. Wojciechowski allows 3 runs on 4 hits in 4 1/3, but walks 3 & strikes out 6. Chance homers (#6) in the 7th to get the O’s on the board but that would be all their offense on the day. Baltimore’s 3 game winning streak is snapped, but they still head into the All-Star break winners in 3 of their last 4 games.
WP : Thornton (3-6)
LP : Wojciechowski (0-2).
