The O’s just had a chance to get on the board vs. Toronto, but three straight hitters were retired with runners on first and second and none out in the last of the fourth.
After a Nick Markakis walk and Miguel Tejada infield single, Garrett Atkins flied to short right. Then Matt Wieters hit a fly out to deep center and the runners moved up one base. But with two outs and second and third, Nolan Reimold was called out on strikes on a close pitch down and in.
On the year, the Orioles are now 8 for 44 as a team batting with runners in scoring position. That’s a .182 average.
Tejada is 3 for 4 on the year in those spots and Atkins is 2 for 5.
