An unfortunate start to the series in Toronto. But encouraging news regarding Manny!

Blue Jays 9, Orioles 3: Relief pitching brings no relief

Orioles recall T.J. McFarland, designate Steve Pearce for assignment

Get to know your Orioles: Nick Markakis

After splitting the series in Boston the O's travel to the Great White North to take on the upstart Blue Jays
18/162nds or 1/9th of the season is not complete for the Birds. And, all things considered, a .500 record ain't too shabby. Now let's see if the O's can do to Toronto what Toronto did to the O's a week and a half ago: take two out of three from them one their home field. Af...
