Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - With just under a month remaining in the
season, the inexperienced Baltimore Orioles have not shown any signs of fear
of a September playoff race.
On Tuesday, the Orioles shut out the Toronto Blue Jays for the second straight
day in a 12-0 win and picked up their fifth victory in their last six games.
Zach Britton (5-1) tossed another stellar outing for the O's. He scattered
four hits and a pair of walks with eight strikeouts in seven innings to win
his fourth straight start.
Over that span, Britton has pitched to a 0.96 earned run average with 29
strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings.
Mark Reynolds blasted a three-run home run, his fifth in his last five games,
and knocked in four runs in the second installment of this three-game set.
Carlos Villanueva (7-5) received the loss for the fifth time in his last six
decisions. He gave up a season-high six runs on seven hits.
