Those extra two minutes are because they play both anthems.
Yesterday, the Birds won the battle. Jason Berken settled down admirably after giving up a couple of dingers early, while Cito (Sucks) left in Ricky Romero an inning too long and Baltimore's bats finally caught up with him.
Today, Chris Tillman will try to improve on what has so far been an inconsistent career in the Show: he's taken his lumps, but has also shown flashes of what we're all hoping he'll become.
He'll be going up against the Jays' Brett Cecil. Cecil has been up since the beginning of May, and had some pretty great outings, including four games where he gave up no runs at all (one of them being his outing at OPACY on July 10). He has pitched deep into several of his games as well. The Jays have good reason to be optimistic about this kid.
Baltimore will be looking to win back-to-back road games for the first time since July 7-8 against Seattle.
