Orioles Win Behind Kremer and Santander’s Two Home Runs

The Baltimore Orioles defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 7-0 on Wednesday night, thanks to a stellar performance by Dean Kremer and two home runs from Anthony Santander.

Santander, who had missed the past three games due to a back issue, made an immediate impact by hitting two home runs. Kremer, on the other hand, pitched six innings and only allowed five hits. The Orioles’ victory extended their streak of avoiding series sweeps to 80 and kept them ahead in the AL East.

Ryan Mountcastle also contributed to the win by extending his major league-leading on-base streak to 28 games. Despite being moved up a day in the rotation, Kremer delivered an impressive performance and secured his 12th win of the season.

The Orioles’ bullpen, consisting of Jacob Webb, Yennier Cano, and Shintaro Fujinami, combined to complete a five-hitter. On the Blue Jays’ side, Kevin Gausman had a solid outing, allowing two runs and recording nine strikeouts over six innings.

In the third inning, Gunnar Henderson doubled and scored on a single by Mountcastle, giving the Orioles a 1-0 lead. Despite a single from George Springer, Kremer retired nine consecutive batters before Santander hit his first home run in the fifth inning to make it 2-0.

The Orioles added four more runs in the eighth inning, with Mountcastle scoring on a wild pitch by Trevor Richards and a throwing error by Danny Jansen. Cedric Mullins contributed a sacrifice fly, and Adley Rutschman had a two-run single.

In a surprising turn of events, Orioles manager Brandon Hyde took batting practice before the game. It was the first time he had swung a bat in the cage since 2006.

Looking ahead, the Blue Jays will send José Berríos to the mound for the final game of the series. The Orioles, however, have not yet named a starter for Thursday’s game due to the rotation shakeup caused by Jack Flaherty’s absence.

In conclusion, the Orioles put on an impressive display of power hitting and solid pitching to secure a convincing win against the Blue Jays. Santander’s return to the lineup proved to be crucial, and Kremer delivered an outstanding performance on short notice. The Orioles continue to defy series sweeps and maintain their lead in the division.
