Cowboy up. Baltimore fans are used to Kevin Millar defeating them, well after the 2008 season at least.
Roy Halladay put on a clinic against the Orioles and his former catcher Gregg Zaun. He got his 5th win of the season pitching 8 solid innings and giving up three earned runs. Halladay is 9-0 in his past 11 starts against the Birds.
Two of those runs came off the bat of Nick Markakis in the first inning. Markakis extended his hitting streak to tie his career total of 17 games with a two run homer that scored Adam Jones.
Four runs is never enough for an Orioles win, starter Mark Hendrickson pitched fine through three innings, but the fourth gave him trouble. He surrendered 4 of the Blue Jays 8 runs in the inning.
Former Orioles first baseman Kevin Millar drove in three runs.
Reliever Dennis Sarfate left the game due to stiffness in his hand. The injury has been reported as minor. Sarfate gave up 2 earned runs, while Jamie Walker held the Jays, and Chris Ray gave up 2 more.
The Orioles play the Blue Jays on Saturday in game 2 of the series at 1:07 PM.
