Jason Hammel became the first O's pitcher to hit three wins this season after a strong seven inning performance in a 3-0 win over the Blue Jays Wednesday night.
Hammel (3-0) allowed just four hits and fanned seven over seven scoreless innings, walking one and lowering his ERA to 1.73. Jeremy who?
Wilson Betemit committed two errors at third base but made up for it with his second homer of the season, a solo shot in the second inning. Chris Davis connected for his second homer, a solo blast in the fourth. The O's added a third run in the eighth, when Adam Jones doubled home Nick Markakis.
Pedro Strop allowed the first two batters he faced to reach in the ninth before inducing a pop-fly and a double play to end the game, and recorded his second save in as many days. Jim Johnson is still in the hospital, and doctors are unsure of his ailment at this time...
The O's have a chance at the three-game sweep of Toronto and send Brian Matusz (0-3) to the mound on Thursday night.
