José Berríos takes no-hitter into 7th, Blue Jays beat Orioles 3-1

BALTIMORE (AP) — José Berríos took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, George Springer homered and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Baltimore 3-1 Wednesday night to end the Orioles’ five-game winning streak.

Berríos allowed only two runners to reach through six innings — on a walk and a hit batter — before Adley Rutschman led off the seventh with a soft liner that dropped well in front of center fielder Kevin Kiermaier.

That ended Berríos’ bid to become only the second Blue Jay to throw a no-hitter, a feat performed by Dave Stieb on Sept. 2, 1990.

Baltimore added a pair of singles off Berríos in the eighth before Tim Mayza retired Gunnar Henderson on a grounder to keep the score 3-0.

Berríos (7-4) went 7 2/3 innings, allowing three hits, striking out five and walking one. The 29-year-old righty improved to 10-0 lifetime against the Orioles.

Jordan Romano gave up three straight two-out singles in ninth, the last an RBI hit by Aaron Hicks, before striking out Adam Frazier to earn his 19th save.

Berríos outpitched Orioles starter Kyle Bradish (2-3), who had a shutout going until Springer hit a solo shot in the sixth.

Toronto padded the lead against the Baltimore bullpen in the eighth with RBI doubles from Whit Merrifield and Bo Bichette.

Berríos retired the first 13 batters he faced before issuing a walk to Austin Hays in the fifth. In the sixth, Berríos struck out the side around hitting Ramón Urías with a pitch.

Toronto improved to 1-4 against the Orioles this season.

Baltimore’s five-game winning streak included an 11-6 rout of the Blue Jays on Tuesday night. The Orioles had a season-high 17 hits in that game.


The Orioles recalled INF Joey Ortiz from Triple-A Norfolk and designated C Mark Kolozsvary for assignment.


Orioles: Placed RH Austin Voth on the 15-day injured list with right elbow discomfort. Manager Brandon Hyde said Voth felt some pain in spring training and “tried to manage it,” but it ultimately impacted his performance. “Last couple of outings have been difficult for him,” Hyde said. “It’s been bothering him, so the right thing to do is let it rest for a little while.” Voth (1-2, 4.94 ERA in 23 games) gave up two runs and retired only one batter Tuesday night. The Orioles selected the contract of RH Reed Garrett to fill the roster void. … RH Mychal Givens (shoulder inflammation) began his rehabilitation assignment Wednesday, throwing 1 1/3 innings for Double-A Bowie against Richmond. He allowed two hits and a run.


Blue Jays: LH Yusei Kikuchi (6-2, 4.34 ERA) starts in the series finale Thursday. Kikuchi took the loss in a May 19 matchup against Baltimore and owns a lifetime 6.29 ERA in nine career games versus the Orioles.

Orioles: RH Tyler Wells (5-2, 3.24) seeks to win his third straight start after beating San Francisco and Kansas City.
