Blue Jays' Donaldson put on 10-day DL

Blue Jays' Donaldson put on 10-day DL

Happily, Morales obviated that prospect by destroying a first pitch curveball from Tyler Wilson to right-centre to give the Jays their first win in over a week, and first one run win of the year.

The Orioles improved to 7-2, tops in the American League East, while the Jays have now lost seven in a row to fall to 1-9, the worst record in the majors.

Home plate umpire Dale Scott is taken off the field by stretcher and emergency vehicle.

Seeking to spark his offense, Toronto manager John Gibbons moved outfielder Ezequiel Carrera into the leadoff spot and dropped Devon Travis, who came in hitless in 23 at bats, to ninth.

The Toronto Blue Jays have put slugging third baseman Josh Donaldson on the 10-day disabled list with a sore right calf. "He's got really good numbers off of me".

Toronto brought the winning run to the plate in the ninth before closer Zach Britton struck out Steve Pearce to lock down his fifth save.

Home plate umpire Dale Scott sustained a concussion in the eighth inning when he was struck in the facemask by a foul tip.

A one-out single by Schoop spelled the end for Sanchez (0-1).

Donaldson was playing pretty well, even though the Blue Jays had got off to their worst start in franchise history at 1-8.

Wade Miley (1-0) threw six innings for the victory.

The Orioles won for the first time this season while scoring fewer than three runs. "He can shut down a good hitting team".

On a broken-bat hit by Toronto's Kendrys Morales in the second, the jagged barrel sailed directly back toward the stands.

More good news? For the first time on this stand, at any stage of any game, the home team held a lead.

Davis tacked on a run in the sixth inning with a solo shot to deep centre field.

The Orioles love to slaughter the Jays with the long ball, as we saw with their two wins to start the season back in Baltimore.

"I think it's just a reminder of the challenges physically and the risk taken every night by catchers, umpires and that one, I know Dale had some concussions previous year", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after the game, via the Baltimore Sun. Chris Coghlan will come up from Triple-A Buffalo to take Donaldson's place on the roster.

Backup infielder Darwin Barney started at third base on Friday night. The Orioles selected the contract of RHP Stefan Crichton from Triple-A Norfolk and designated RHP Oliver Drake for assignment. It's just a matter of time before things turn around, and against a pitcher who has pitched just 56.2 career innings under his belt, it might as well start here.

They felt just as home under the dome on Friday, however, as three homers in a two-inning stretch turned a 3-1 Jays lead into a 5-3 Orioles. lead.
