The O's started the Jays series on a good note with a 7-5 win on Friday. Jason Berken earned his first win since his Major League debut, going 6 innings while surrendering 3 runs. Nolan Reimold and Matt Wieters led the O's with 2 RBIs apiece.
On Saturday, Chris Tillman pitched a good game (6 2/3 innings, 2 earned runs) but did not factor into the decision. The O's bullpen failed them again as Danys Baez gave up the game winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning and the O's lost 3-2. The O's runs were driven in by Aubrey Huff and Nolan Reimold.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game was... Matt Wieters!
Wieters went 0/4 with 2 strikeouts and left 5 men on base.
On Sunday, Brian Matusz got shelled. The O's lost 7-3. That is all I have to say.

5 earned runs in 2 2/3 innings will do that for you.
