First baseman Trey Mancini hit two home runs for the Orioles, the first off Ryan Tepera and another in the eighth off left-handed rookie Matt Dermody. They're an alarming 2-9.
"There's no doubt guys are pressing", said Gibbons. "It's been a long skid". Hopefully that's the start of something.
"We've been in absolutely every game", he told Postmedia.
Kim Hyun-soo of the Baltimore Orioles has hit his first double of the season following a four-game absence from the lineup.
With seven home runs total between this season and a September call-up last season, Mancini has joined Trevor Story and Dino Restelli for the most home runs hit in the first 12 games of a player's career.
"My first two or three or four (curve balls) in a game are really good and once you continue to do that now it starts to affect my sinker, now it starts to affect other pitches", he said. One of the best finesse pitchers in the game, Estrada allowed runners to get on base in five of the seven innings he pitched, but was able to shut the door on the hard-hitting Orioles.
The second baseman says he will give tickets or memorabilia to anyone who can send him the model shin guard he wore.
"I didn't execute a pitch up in the zone and he kind of jumped me from the first pitch", Wilson said.
Toronto Blue Jays Kendrys Morales gestures as he rounds the bases after hitting a walk off home run to defeat the Baltimore Orioles in a baseball game in Toronto on Saturday, April 15, 2017.
"It's very aggravating, very frustrating", Donaldson told ESPN. "I just stayed with it and it worked today". He took the loss. Bautista, Morales, Russell Martin and Troy Tulowitzki are a combined 0-for-14 versus Bundy, who was 1-0 with 3 2/3 innings of scoreless relief against Toronto a year ago. Craig Gentry hit a sac fly to deep centre to score Hardy. Bautista beat the throw from Adam Jones with a good slide at home.
"It's not a time you get external help", said Shapiro. Following a brief conversation, Happ walked off the mound and into the clubhouse. Barney charged to field it but lost the ball as he pulled it out of his glove.
It was the second sterling performance from Bundy against Toronto this year. Ahead of Welington Castillo 1-2, he was unable to finish him off with a slider that was tapped back off Osuna, for a leadoff infield single. Baltimore All-Star Manny Machado has yet to find his swing in April, batting.171 overall and going 2-for-21 over his last six games.
"It was pretty fun and pretty cool that they both hit home runs", Mancini said.
The game was delayed more than 10 minutes.
"I'm not going to set a timeline right now", Donaldson said.
"Obviously these guys have got so many weapons, but you've got to kind of just do not forget to get back to square one".
