Bush Gets No Run Support As Orioles Win Again
Canadian left-hander Erik Bedard making his debut on Canadian soil for the Orioles, worked both sides of the plate effectively, throwing seven shutout innings with six strikeouts and only one walk for his first victory of 2005.
Once Bush left the game, the Orioles got to Miguel Batista for three runs in the 9th from a Jay Gibbons fielder's choice, a Luis Matos sacrifice-fly and a RBI infield single by Rafael Palmeiro.
BJ Ryan came in to pitch the bottom of the ninth and surrendered a solo home run to Vernon Wells making the final score 4-1.
The Blue Jays have averaged only three runs in their past five games and might have gotten the short end of the stick on a few calls today against the Orioles which could have been a difference in the outcome but scoring three runs a game is not going to get you anywhere, especially in the American League East.
Toronto will try and avoid a series sweep on Sunday as they send ace starter Roy Halladay (3-0) to the mound, who will be looked upon to stop the bleeding. Sidney Ponson (2-1), who had to acquire a special permit allowing him to enter Canada stemming from an earlier incident in Florida where he was arrested on a DUI, will get the ball for the Orioles.
The game on Sunday can be seen on Rogers Sportsnet starting at 1pm EST and also on The FAN 590AM.
