Baltimore Orioles fall to Toronto

The Baltimore Orioles entered last night’s final series of the season against Toronto with nothing more than pride on the line. They can’t make the postseason, but they have nothing for which to be ashamed in this season. NOTHING. Dean Kremer made his final start of 2022, and pitched okay against one of the best lineups in the league. Kremer’s line: 6.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 4 K.

Kremer gave up an RBI-single to Merrifield in the top of the second, giving Toronto a 1-0 lead. One inning later that extended to a 3-0 lead when Guerrero smacked a two-run homer. The Birds netted their lone run in the last of that same third inning when Anthony Santander sent a deep shot to right, which was caught by Hernandez. However with a runner on third, it went as a sac fly-RBI.

Kremer would uncork a wild pitch in the fifth with a runner on third, running the lead to 4-1. The teams sat through a rain delay late in the game of just under an hour, and Toronto added one more run on Chapman’s eighth inning RBI-single once play resumed. And the O’s fell, 5-1.

The series continues tonight at Camden Yards. Mike Baumann gets the start for the O’s, and he’ll be opposed by Toronto’s Mitch White. Game time is set for just after 7 PM.
