GAME SUMMARY: Caleb Joseph’s ninth inning single keyed a three-run rally that gave the Orioles a 5-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.
Joseph’s single off Aaron Loup (2-4) scored J.J. Hardy and Manny Machado’s double scored Ryan Flaherty and Joseph.
Darren O’Day, who wiggled out of a bases-loaded, none out jam in the eighth, got the win. O’Day is 3-0.
Zach Britton allowed a run in the ninth, but picked up his 19th save.
The Orioles are 35-33. Toronto is 37-33.
THE GOOD: Kevin Gausman allowed two runs on four hits in five innings in his first start of the season.
THE BAD: Orioles fans got nervous in the ninth when Britton allowed a run and had the tying run on the base before Juan Encarnacion hit into a double play to end the game.
THE UGLY: The vaunted Blue Jays offense had the bases loaded in the eighth, and O’Day struck out the side. It was the second time this season O’Day has extricated himself from a bases-loaded, none out jam.
OUCH: Adam Jones was the Orioles designated hitter for the second straight game. He missed the previous three with a sore right shoulder.
STREAKING: Travis Snider had his second three-hit game of the season. His first was on Opening Day.
O’DAY VS. BAUTISTA: After his eighth-inning single, Jose Bautista is 6-for-17 against O’Day with four home runs. No one has more than two homers off O’Day.
REHABBING: Miguel Gonzalez is scheduled to start Saturday night in Bowie while Wei-Yin Chen, temporarily demoted to Frederick, starts for the Keys.
FUN FACT: Nolan Reimold last started a game in center field in 2006 when he played for Frederick.
SIGNED: The Orioles signed three more draft choices: C Christopher Shaw (15th round), SS Branden Becker (17) and RHP Christian Turnipseed (28). They’ve signed 28 of their 41 choices.
COMING UP: Chris Tillman (5-7, 5.58) faces Daniel Copeland (1-1, 2.57) on Sunday afternoon at 1:07 p.m.
