The Orioles, short on healthy starters, employed the bull-pening craze to face the visiting Toronto Blue Jays in the first of a series of three. The results were not satisfactory.

Evan Phillips, a reliever who started one game last season in the minors. took the first attempt to silence the Canadian bats. He lasted two innings allowing three runs. Similar to some other starts the Orioles have received from actual starters this season.

Jon Villar, John Andreoli, and Renato Núñez each singled.

Sean Gilmartin is left handed. Sean Gilmartin throws a variety of fairly slow pitches. He baffled the Blue Jays for four and two third innings allowing a solo home run. Cody Carroll finished the game with a two and a third innings scoreless stint.

Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
