TOUGH ON ROLEN

Orioles pitchers Jason Berken and Matt Albers spoiled the night for Toronto third baseman Scott Rolen, who entered with a 25-game hitting streak, the longest active streak in the majors and a career high for the veteran. Rolen was hitless in four at-bats.

DUELING ACTING MANAGERS

Dave Jauss, the Orioles' bench coach, who was filling in for the suspended Dave Trembley, wasn't the only acting manager at Camden Yards Friday. Toronto's bench coach, Brian Butterfield, was filling in for Cito Gaston, who left the team because of the death of his sister. He is expected back Sunday.

ON DECK

Rich Hill (3-2, 7.43) makes his 11th start of the season and second against the Blue Jays tonight at 7:05. The other time Hill faced Toronto was May 27, when he allowed six earned runs over 3 1/3 innings in a no-decision. The Orioles have faced Toronto's impressive rookie Ricky Romero (7-3, 2.96) once before, beating him, 7-2, on May 26.
