Baltimore Orioles Roundup: Orioles keep winning as they top Blue Jays

The Orioles surprisingly hot start to the 2019 season continued on Tuesday, as they defeated the Blue Jays 2-1, moving to 4-1 on the season. Here's the latest Baltimore Orioles news.

Player Updates:

Opening Day starter Andrew Cashner shut down the Blue Jays on the road over six innings, allowing four hits and surrendering three walks. He struck out three.

The Orioles have four saves in their four wins, and each save has gone to a different player, giving the term "closer by committee" new meaning. Miguel Castro closed things out Tuesday, allowing one home run but nothing more.

Joey Rickard was the only hitter to garner much offense, recording two doubles and drawing a walk in the 2-1 win. The doubles represented his first extra base hits of the season.

Injuries: 

P Alex Cobb: Groin, 10-day IL

DH Mark Trumbo: Knee, 60-day IL

Coming Up:

Wednesday 4/3: Orioles @ Blue Jays, 7:07 p.m. EST, Rogers Centre, Toronto, Ontario

Thursday 4/4: New York Yankees @ Orioles, 3:05 p.m. EST, Camden Yards, Baltimore, Md.

Saturday 4/6: New York Yankees @ Orioles, 7:05 p.m. EST, Camden Yards, Baltimore, Md.

The most unbelievable catch of the Orioles' dismal season came in the team's final game

It's not how you start, it's how you finish, and boy did Orioles right fielder Steve Wilkerson make sure the team went out with a bang against the Boston Red Sox.

Bottom of the eighth, game knotted at four, Jackie Bradley Jr. sent what seemed to be a moonshot to right field...

But what happens next is arguably the best catch of the entire MLB season. 

This catch by Wilkerson is nothing less than spectacular. Not only did he possess the focus to track the ball beyond the wall, but the athleticism to make the catch while almost tumbling over backwards into the crowd. 

This year may have been a huge let down for Baltimore, but here's to a bright spot heading into the offseason.
