Orioles 0 Blue Jays 5 (8 innings)
So the Jays had a no-hitter going until just after I mentioned it. Such is life. I do generally reject the idea that the world revolves around me, but sometimes the world says ‘no tom, I really do revolve around you’. The price I pay.
Robbie Ray was terrific again. 4 no-hit innings. He gave up a couple of walks in his last inning when he looked to me to be tiring. He still wasn’t missing by much. He threw 52 pitches and has a couple more weeks to build up to a full start. He hit 97 a couple of times.
Francisco Liriano gave up 2 walks (had had 2 wild pitches, though I thought Kirk should've blocked one of them. But he also had 2 strikeouts.
Rafael Dolis had a quick inning (and I think he didn’t take as long between pitches), getting 2 strikeouts.
Jordan Romano allowed our one hit but had 3 strikeouts. He topped out at 97.5.
Ryan Borucki had a quick inning too, with 3 strikeouts. He got to 97.7.
The offensive star was Cavan Biggio. He went 2 for 2, double and home run, with 3 RBI and a walk. He’s hitting .250 with a 1.116 OPS.

Tomorrow the Yankees invade Dunedin. It is on MLB Audio with the Yankees’ feed. That and the fixed camera and we almost have something approaching a real broadcast.
