Welcome to your Orioles watching companion. Return here throughout the game for real-time recaps and analysis.
The Orioles win, 6-5. It was 6-0 when David Hess was removed after 6 1/3 no-hit innings, but Richard Bleier gets a very tense first career save after allowing two runs to improve them to 3-1. Mancini: 2-for-3, HR (2). Villar: HR.
There aren't a lot of people here in Toronto, but not many of those are happy with Brandon Hyde for that decision. Hess had 82 pitches, and it would have been a challenge to get there on April 1. But a pretty serious decision to have to make at this early stage. #Orioles
Brandon Drury lines out at 104-mph right at Richie Martin, and Brandon Hyde comes and gets David Hess after 6 1/3 no-hit innings. The Blue Jays fans are booing the decision, and Hess got a lot of head-pats on the mound as it was explained.
David Hess gets a soft liner to Chris Davis to end the sixth after picking up his career-high eighth strikeout, and he is through six with only a walk blemishing his line. The Orioles lead 5-0, and he has 74 pitches.
Cedric Mullins working a 12-pitch at-bat from the right side to likely chase a pitcher who has given the Orioles fits is the kind of at-bat that will stick out as they continue to wait for him to start hitting this spring.
David Hess has seven strikeouts, a walk, and nothing else on his line through five innings. At 61 pitches and with a 5-0 lead, he has a rock-solid chance to be the first Orioles pitcher to retire a batter the third time through this season.
Three strikeouts after a leadoff walk for David Hess in the fourth inning. He's at 50 pitches, and with four tonight and five on Thursday in relief, he already has more pitches over 95 mph than all of 2018. 5-0 Orioles.
Cedric Mullins got hit by a pitch to open the second, went to second on a Dwight Smith Jr. chopper, stopped at third after a Jonathan Villar single to center field, and scored on a Trey Mancini sacrifice fly. The Orioles lead 5-0.

Somebody stop the Orioles. After a one-out single from Dwight Smith Jr., Jonathan Villar hit his first home run of the season to put them up 2-0. Then, Trey Mancini picked up his FIFTH infield single of the year.
Brandon Hyde said: Nate Karns will start Weds as the Orioles bullpen it again; he’s glad Dwight Smith Jr. is taking his chance to perform early; Renato Núñez can play defense if they need him to; he’s glad what was the quietest team he’s ever seen came out of its shell. #Orioles
These are the Orioles looking to make it three wins in a row as they start a series with the Toronto Blue Jays. Trey Mancini back in right and Cedric Mullins back in the mix. pic.twitter.com/wV1jumwcB8
