OLSON SETTLES IN:: It didn't start out well for Garrett Olson, who allowed a long solo homer to former Oriole Jose Bautista, the second batter he faced. However, he settled down and authored a respectable start, allowing three runs in 5 2/3 innings.
NOT MILLER'S TIME:: Reliever Jim Miller was called on in the sixth inning with two on and two out and the Orioles leading 2-1. It took just two pitches for him to turn Olson's potential victory into a loss. Miller threw a wild pitch and then allowed a two-run double by pinch hitter and former Oriole Gregg Zaun that gave the Blue Jays a lead they didn't relinquish.
ONE-RUN IS NO FUN:: Through June 18, the Orioles were 18-10 in one-run games. However, last night's narrow loss means they are 2-17 in one-run games since. They've also dropped seven straight one-run contests. They are 20-27 overall in one-run games.
CINTRON BREAKS ICE:: Getting a rare start at shortstop, Alex Cintron delivered in the fifth inning last night, making Toronto starter Jesse Litsch pay for his wildness. After Litsch walked the bases loaded, Cintron hit a two-out, two-run single to right field, giving the Orioles a 2-1 lead.
