Orioles Turn Back Blue Jays, 7-5
Baltimore rode a decent outing from starter Dylan Baker to victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. The final score was 7-5. Danny Morales recorded his 3rd save for Baltimore. The Orioles raised their record to 8-1.

It could have been a different outcome for Baltimore, had it not been for Heston Kjerstad, the 2023 Rookie of the Year Award winner . Kjerstad contributed a 2-run home run in the top of the first inning to put Baltimore up, 2-0.

"I made some pitches when I had to," said Baker.
