Orioles: Fun while it lasted

Mark Hendrickson looked very good for the first three innings tonight at Rogers Centre, partly because he retired the first batter in each of those innings. He gave up a base hit to open the fourth inning and gave up four runs on five hits to put the Orioles in the unenviable position of needing to overtake Roy Halladay (18-4 lifetime against Baltimore) after jumping ahead of him on a first-inning home run by Nick Markakis.

Halladay appears to have settled down, which doesn't auger well for an Orioles comeback in the opener of the three-game series.
