Recap: Baltimore vs. Toronto

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Tommy Hunter tossed six strong innings of one-run ball and Matt Wieters' solo blast in the fourth proved to be the difference as the Orioles took a 2-1 victory over the Blue Jays in the opener of a three-game series at Camden Yards on Tuesday.

Hunter (2-1) surrendered just three hits and three walks while striking out three and Pedro Strop worked around a one-out walk in the ninth to record his first career save.

"He seemed to attack the strike zone a little more," said Orioles manager Buck Showalter about Hunter's outing. "I was really proud that he got to the sixth inning with the pitch count he had. He's going to keep firing bullets."

Endy Chavez added a hit and a run scored for the O's, who improved to 3-1 against Toronto after taking two of three from the Jays earlier this season.

Hector Alvarez (0-2) was charged with both runs on five hits and two walks over seven innings for Toronto. Eric Thames had two hits, including a solo homer for the Blue Jays, who were coming off a four-game sweep of Kansas City.

The O's quickly loaded the bases in the first as Chavez hit a leadoff single, J.J. Hardy followed with a double off the left-field wall and Nick Markakis drew a walk.

Baltimore, though, would only get one run as Adam Jones' double-play groundout scored Chavez before Wieters grounded out to first to end the threat.

Thames got the run back for Toronto in the third, launching a leadoff homer to right field.

But Baltimore broke the tie in the fourth as Wieters lifted a towering flyball the other way to left field. Thames seemed to have a beat on it and made a leaping attempt at the wall, but the ball deflected off his glove and into the seats for a 2-1 O's lead.

"It was going to hit the top of the wall, I reached up to catch it and it hit off my glove and went into the seats," Thames said about Wieters' homer. "It's as simple as that."
