Pecking Order

Orioles 6, Blue Jays 5 : Pecking Order – Trey Mancini drives in 2 & scores a run as the Orioles take advantage of a wild major league debut from Jays P Yennsy Diaz & some bad defense to get the series split w/ the Blue Jays @ home. Chance Sisco reaches on an error by SS Bo Bichette & Mancini doubles home 2 in a 3-run 2nd against Jays starter Sean Reid-Foley. Diaz takes over in the 5th & allows just 1 hit but walks 4, including Chance Sisco & Chris Davis to force home 2 runs, then exits after just 2/3 of an inning. Bichette makes up for his error w/ a solo shot (#2) off of Thomas Eshelman & Cavan Biggio (#9) follows up w/ another as the Jays go back to back in the 7th, Randal Grichuk doubles home 1 more to cut the lead to 1 against Dillon Tate.
Shawn Armstrong works the 9th to close it out.
Baltimore has won 7 of their last 13 & will host New York for 3 starting tonight.
