Orioles again score three in the first

Last night, J.J. Hardy hit a three-run homer in the first inning to give the Orioles a quick 3-0 lead over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Less than 24 hours later, they scored three runs in the first inning against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey to take a 3-0 lead.

Chris Davis drove in a run on a ground-rule double, giving him 15 extra-base hits in his last 15 games and 46 RBIs on the season. Hardy followed with a two-run single, giving him five RBIs in the last two games.

Hardy has hit safely in 18 of the last 20 games.

Davis has nine hits, three homers and five RBIs in the last four games. He has 23 hits in his last 15 games.

The Orioles sent eight batters to the plate. Nate McLouth singled, and Nick Markakis and Danny Valencia walked.

The Blue Jays scored a run off Orioles starter Freddy Garcia in the bottom of the first, with Adam Lind delivering a two-out single that plated Melky Cabrera.
