The Orioles starting lineup:
C. Mullins CF, 2. A. Rutschman C, 3. A. Santander DH, 4. R. Mountcastle 1B, 5. T. Vavra LF, 6. R. Odor 3B, 7. R. Urias 3B, 8. J. Mateo SS, 9. R. McKenna

The starter on the mound for Toronto was Alek Manoah (12-5, 2.56 ERA)
Vladimir Guerrero started the game off for Toronto with a 2-run 398-foot home run (25) to give the Blue Jays a 2-0 lead. Kremer would not allow another run in his seven innings. He got out of multiple jams, including eliciting a double play with the bases loaded.
In the 5th inning, Cedric Mullins cut the Blue Jays’ lead in half with a 408-foot home run (11). The next batter, Adley Rutschman, hit a 411-foot home run (7) to tie the game at 2.
Ramon Urias hit a single to give the O’s a 3-2 lead in the 6th.
Anthony Bass (1.43 ERA) came in for the Blue Jays. Ryan McKenna then hit an RBI-single to extend the O’s lead 4-2. Manoah is a Cy Young candidate, but he was charged with four earned tonight.
Adam Cimber (3.10 ERA) relieved Bass in the 8th.
Dillon Tate (2.48 ERA) came in for Baltimore in the 8th and pitched a clean inning.
David Phelps (2.58 ERA) entered to finish the game for the Blue Jays.
Felix Bautista (1.65 ERA) came in to make his 52nd appearance on the season and easily pitched a 1-2-3 inning. This might have been the best we’ve seen him, and he threw very few fastballs.
The Orioles will look for the sweep against Toronto tomorrow, Wednesday, August 17th at 3:07 PM EST.
