O's Fall To Jays in Finale

Toronto scored twice in the eighth inning and went on to beat the Birds 8-6 on Thursday afternoon at Camden Yards.

Tommy Hunter surrendered six runs in six innings and was taken to the hospital after he started vomiting after leaving the game. Hunter began feeling ill in the third inning, and gave up five earned runs on nine hits and a walk while fanning three.

Vladimir Guerrero had a big day at the plate, driving in a season-best four runs. Guerrero went 3-for-4 with a single, a double and a solo homer. But it just wasn't enough...

Willie Eyre pitched a 1-2-3 seventh before running into trouble in the eighth. Eyre (1-1) walked the first batter he faced before serving-up a two-run bomb to Brett Lawrie, snapping a tie ballgame and giving Toronto an 8-6 lead they would not relinquish.

The Orioles (54-81) now travel to Florida to take on the Rays. Zach Britton takes the mound for the Birds on Friday night.
