WP – S. Feldman (1-1) LP – J. Johnson (1-5)

S – J. Johnson (33)

The Baltimore Orioles continue to win behind the big bat of Chris Davis, who hit his 37th homerun going into the All Star break, putting him on pace to hit 62 homeruns on the season.  Davis went 2-for-4 on the day, with a double and the homerun, driving in four RBIs.  Adam Jones also added a homerun and drove in two to help the Orioles to the win.

Scott Feldman went seven and a third for the win in only his second start for the Orioles since coming over in a trade from the Cubs.  He gave up three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven.

Josh Johnson went six innings, giving up all seven runs to take the loss for the Toronto Blue Jays. Johnson continues to struggle this season since coming over in the trade from the Miami Marlins last year falling to 1-5 over twelve starts.

Tommy Hunter pitched two thirds of inning, giving up three hits, allowing an inherited runner to score in the eighth and another run in the top of the ninth before being relieved by Jim Johnson, who picked up his 33rd save by pitching a scoreless ninth inning.

The Orioles improved to 53-43 on the season going into the All Star break.
