3 ways the Orioles blew Tuesday's game vs. Blue Jays

  3 ways the Orioles blew Tuesday's game vs. Blue Jays First things first: Toronto Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez cruised through seven hitless innings against the Baltimore Orioles, issuing only four walks and a hit-by-pitch before taking the mound again in the eighth with a 1-0 lead. The Orioles threatened, tied the game, and then failed to keep their feet on the gas, eventually losing 2-1. But it wasn't simply one thing that sunk this team; at least three key moments played a role in the Orioles losing a game they probably should have won, despite Sanchez's outstanding pitching performance.

The Marlins will take a run any way they can get it this season and the Pirates gifted them three Friday.

Lynn walked Freese to start the inning, and after getting Josh Bell to fly out , allowed a single to McCutchen that put Freese on third. Pirates chase Lynn from game, score three runs in sixth. After watching the Pirates take the lead in the top of the first inning, Matt Carpenter tied the game in.

The Marlins just managed to get three runs to score on a sacrifice fly.

Confused? So are we. But it happened and it came at the expense of Pirates starter Chad Kuhl.

With one out and the bases loaded for Starlin Castro in the fifth inning, Kuhl got Castro to fly out to right fielder Gregory Polanco.

The 26-year-old then fired a throw home, but it was too late to catch pitcher Dillon Peters who tagged up from third base.

This is where things got crazy. Miguel Rojas then tried to advance on the throw home to second base and Pirates catcher Elias Diaz threw down trying to catch him.

Richard Griffin: Blue Jays open Cleveland series with a bang

  Richard Griffin: Blue Jays open Cleveland series with a bang It was an unlikely 8-4 win for the Blue Jays in the opener of their weekend series against the Indians at Cleveland’s Progressive Field on Friday night, the kind of comeback victory they did not enjoy all of last April. A sort-of Ohio two-step that set up the Jays’ winning run in the top of the seventh inning. With Steve Pearce on second base and a 1-and-2 count, Cleveland reliever Andrew Miller threw a nasty slider to Teoscar Hernandez that seemed to catch the corner. Miller took two steps toward his dugout, and Hernandez took two steps toward his, but the umpire called it ball two.

The Miami Marlins just managed to get three runs to score on a sacrifice fly against the Pittsburgh Pirates in MLB action on Friday. Confused? So are we. But it happened and it came at the expense of Pirates starter Chad Kuhl. With one out and the bases loaded for Starlin Castro in the fifth inning

But when you score three runs on a sac fly that'll get the crowd going. Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Chad Kuhl, left, covers the plate as the Miami Marlins' JB Shuck scores on a wild pitch in the second inning at Marlins Park in Miami on Friday, April 13, 2018.

Problem was the throw sailed and Starling Marte was nowhere to be found to back up the play. That allowed Derek Dietrich to score from second and Rojas followed him all the way around to score from first.

It goes down as a sac fly and a two-base error. Only one of the runs was earned but the Pirates deserve all the ridicule for this play.
