A day after being blanked by Toronto, the Birds whacked seven homers in a 12-2 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday night at Camden Yards.
Five Orioles went deep, as the club tied a franchise record with the seven dingers. Nate McLouth started things off with a solo homer in the first...Jim Thome, Manny Machado and Chris Davis all went deep in the fifth...Mark Reynolds went yard in the sixth, Davis struck again in the seventh and Machado added another bomb in the eighth.
Miguel Gonzalez held Toronto to just two runs on five hits and a walk over seven innings, striking out one. Brian Matusz and Tommy Hunter each pitched a scoreless inning.
