TORONTO -- He threw strikes, spotting his fastball and his curveball with pinpoint precision. He was frequently dominant yet never wild. And yes, Daniel Cabrera could have even been described as economical.

His first appearance after a 3 1/2 -week demotion to the minor leagues, Cabrera was the pitcher that the Orioles hoped that he would grow into this season, perhaps even better, last night. He contained the Toronto Blue Jays over seven strong innings, long enough for the Orioles' offense to awake from its recent slumber.
