Orioles no-hit through seven, nearly beat Blue Jays anyway


Orioles no-hit through seven, nearly beat Blue Jays anyway

GAME SUMMARY: Marco Estrada held the Orioles hitless through seven innings, but the Toronto Blue Jays barely held on to beat the Orioles 5-4 on Friday night.

Estrada (5-3) walked four and struck out six in throwing 118 pitches as Toronto (37-32) led 5-0 after seven.

Jimmy Paredes led off the eighth inning with a single to left field. After Paredes’ single, Roberto Osuna relieved Estrada. Manny Machado followed with a single as the Orioles scored two runs in the eight.

Adam Jones’ two-run single off Brett Cecil made the score 5-4. With runners on first and third, Cecil struck out Chris Davis to record his fifth save.

Mike Wright (2-3) allowed three runs on four hits with four walks in 1 1/3 innings as the Orioles (34-33) lost their second straight after winning 11 of 13.

Edwin Encarnacion led the Blue Jays (37-32) with two hits and two RBIs.

THE GOOD: Tyler Wilson saved the Orioles bullpen by relieving Wright and allowing one run in 5 2/3 innings, the longest bullpen stint of the season.

THE BAD: In Wright’s three good starts, he allowed three runs in 19 1/3 innings. Since then, he’s given up 14 runs in 10 1/3 innings.

THE UGLY: In the first inning, Mike Wright grazed Jose Bautista with a pitch, and Toronto manager John Gibbons was ejected by home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor.

Bucknor warned both benches and in the eighth inning after Osuna hit Adam Jones, both Osuna and Blue Jays bench coach DeMarlo Hale was ejected.

OUCH: Jones was in the original Orioles’ lineup in center field, but after batting practice, he was moved to designated hitter.

CALLING NORFOLK: Wright will likely be sent to Norfolk to make room for Saturday’s starter, Kevin Gausman. The Orioles may need another reliever, and Wilson could be replaced by a fresher arm.

STREAK ENDS: J.J. Hardy’s 11-game hitting streak ended when he popped out with the bases loaded.

REHABBING: Jonathan Schoop was 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his first rehab game for Bowie. He’s been out for two months with a sprained right knee.

FUN FACT: The Orioles have not been no-hit since Boston’s Clay Buchholz did it at Fenway Park on Sept. 1, 2007.

COMING UP: Gausman faces Mark Buehrle (7-4, 4.01) on Saturday at 1:07 p.m. Gausman will be activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Check out the latest news and notes on the Baltimore Orioles

Player Updates:

Even in a loss, the night belonged to OF Anthony Santander who went 4-for-5 with a homer, triple and two runs scored. Santander tripled and scored during the Orioles' five-run rally in the third inning. He then tagged Rick Porcello for a solo shot in the fifth that pulled the Orioles to within 10 runs at 16-6. It was the first four-hit game of the young outfielder's career. 

SP Thomas Eshelman had a rough day on the mound giving up nine runs (five earned) on six hits over 3 2/3 innings of work. The right-hander also issued three walks while striking out three. He struggled to keep the ball in the ballpark in this one, giving up home runs to Jackie Bradley Jr., Rafael Devers and Mookie Betts before departing in the fourth. 

Due to Pedro Severino's illness, the Orioles optioned C Austin Wynns to Triple-A Norfolk. He has played in 16 games for the O's this year with a .233 batting average, zero homers and three RBI in 47 plate appearances.
