Jason Hammel couldn't stop the bleeding and the O's fell to Toronto 4-1 on Wednesday night.
Hammel gave up four solo homers in 6 2/3 innings after allowing just three in his previous nine starts and fell to 6-2 on the season.
The O's scored on an infield hit in the second inning but were kept off the board the rest of the game, managing just four hits all night and striking out 10 times.
The Birds have now lost three straight series and have won just two of their last 10 games, yet are still tied for first with the Rays.
After an off-day Thursday, things get interesting as the O's take on Tampa Bay for a three-game set starting Friday night. Wei-Yin Chen looks to lead the Birds to victory and sole possession of first...
