The Baltimore Orioles closed out a 3-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays, beating them 3-2, to take 2 out of 3 games against the Jays at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.  The O’s rode a strong 7-inning pitching performance by righthander Miguel Gonzalez, who gave up 1 run on just 2 hits.  He was relieved in the 8th inning by Tommy Hunter, who allowed 1 run on 3 hits.  Oriole closer Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless 9th inning to record his league-leading 48th save of the season.  Offensively, the Orioles were aided by a 2nd inning  solo  home run by catcher Matt Wieters, his 22nd of the season.  The next inning was highlighted by an RBI double by right fielder Nick Markakis, and a sacrifice fly by Wieters.  That turned out to be all the runs the Orioles would need to secure their 83rd victory against 76 losses.oriolescelebrate_3318-430x298
