Blue Jays 5, Orioles 0: 0-12

Jeremy Guthrie lost this game despite not allowing an earned run. That is what this team has come to. Thanks to an error by Corey Patterson, Guts gave up an unearned run in the bottom of the second inning, and that's all he gave up. He pitched 7 innings with 6 hits, 3 strikeouts, 1 intentional walk, and 1 unearned run. And he took the loss. It's a shame. 

Koji and The O Man stank it up after Guts left the game for the other four runs, thus ensuring that Eat More Esskay's sad goal of making it a save situation didn't come true (although Kevin Gregg did make an appearance. He was probably getting rusty, what with the Blue Jays having played the Orioles in two recent series). 

Brian Roberts led off the game with a single and that would be the last hit the Orioles would get until the top of the 7th, when Jake Fox singled. Ty Wigginton added a double in the 9th, and those three hits plus three walks (one by Wiggy, two by Nick Markakis) would be the only base runners for the O's. 

So who shut them down, you ask? What ridiculously talented pitcher could hold the Orioles to just two hits and three walks over seven innings? That would be Brad Mills. Never heard of him? This was his first appearance with the Blue Jays in 2010. Last year he made two starts for the Jays, lasting a combined total of 7.2 innings while giving up 14 hits, 6 walks, 4 home runs and 12 earned runs. He's been in AAA this entire year, making 16 mediocre starts before the Jays called him up for this cake walk. 

Tonight's Most Birdland Player is Jeremy Guthrie. Do you disagree?
