Austin Hays and Adley Rutschman had RBI singles in the second inning of today’s game against Baltimore who downed the Blue Jays 6-1 to win three of four in Toronto. The Blue Jays are now 2-8 against the Orioles and 8-23 versus all AL East opponents this year

This was Jack Flaherty’s debut with the Orioles and he delivered. Notwithstanding the inflated ERA, he’s apparently a solid pitcher. To quote Ben McDonald, “This was better than good.”

Flaherty put on a real show in Toronto. Skating through five scoreless innings, his fastball averaged 94 mph.

Overall, Flaherty’s pitching line was three hits, two walks and a run in six innings. The guy obviously knows how to underpromise and overdeliver.

Ryan Mountcastle went 4 for 4 and scored twice while Hays was 4 for 5 with two RBIs as Baltimore took three of four from Toronto. The Orioles are 8-2 against the Blue Jays this season.
