Adam Jones likes playing in Toronto. The Orioles center fielder launched a moonshot that hit off the bottom railing of the third deck of the Rogers Centre in the seventh inning of the Orioles' 6-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon. Jones, who now has nine homers this season, has homered in each of the first three games of the series here in Toronto. Saturday's blast was his eighth homer at the Rogers Centre since the beginning of the 2012 season, most of any opposing player in that span.

TORONTO - The starting lineup the Orioles fielded in Friday night's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre was missing 98 homers and 304 RBIs. Without Nelson Cruz, Adam Jones, Steve Pearce and J.J. Hardy, the Orioles were minus a significant amount of offensive punch. In Saturday's 4 p.m. game, expect to see Nick Markakis and Alejandro De Aza taking their day of rest. And expect Orioles manager Buck Showalter to begin using the bullpen en masse behind left-hander Wei-Yin Chen.

The Orioles have been able to catch up on their sleep after completing two games over a 20-hour span in Boston. Their stretch of 15 consecutive games against American League East opponents -- there were 16 scheduled games but one home game against the Tampa Bay Rays was rained out -- ends with three games against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. After winning Monday's Patriots' Day game in Boston, the Orioles are now 16-8 in their last 24 games at Fenway Park. They haven't had that kind of recent success in Toronto.

Over the first three games of this weekend's series in Toronto, the Orioles and Blue Jays have combined for 76 hits and 45 runs here at the Rogers Centre. With 21 more combined hits in this afternoon's series finale, the teams will match the record for hits in a four-game Orioles-Jays series at the Rogers Centre. The record of 97 hits was set on June 23-26, 2003. I asked Orioles manager Buck Showalter before the game why the Rogers Centre has become such a hitter-friendly park. He just put his hands over his head and said he would say if he knew.

If Toronto wants to climb out of the American League East cellar, this is a golden opportunity to do it, with the fourth-place Orioles in town for three games. The Blue Jays just went 2-4 on a road trip through Seattle and Anaheim. They've lost four of their past five. Returning to Rogers Centre is a comfort, as they've lost 13 of their past 17 away from home. They batted .233 on the road trip, including .208 with runners in scoring position. Roy Halladay is their lone All-Star representative.

After getting swept by the New York Yankees this week to end Baltimore's season-opening, six-game homestand, the Orioles need to get away, right? Maybe not. The Orioles will open their first road trip of the season - a three-city, 10-game swing - in the House of Horrors that's otherwise known as the Rogers Centre. Maybe the ghost of Cito Gaston still haunts the O's. Maybe it's years of lingering hangover from the end of the 1989 “Why Not?” season. Whatever it is, the Orioles have been horrible north of the border.

The Orioles will try to avoid being swept for just the second time this season this afternoon at the Rogers Centre. The Blue Jays have won 10 straight, tied for the longest winning streak in the majors this season. Just a side note, the Orioles did not file a protest for Friday's game after a reversed call led to manager Buck Showalter's ejection, according to a club official. From what I heard, the club considered it, but decided against it since the call really didn't impact the game.

TORONTO - First things first. When discussing his performance Wednesday night against the Blue Jays, Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel blamed himself and his inability to keep his fastball down against a fastball-feasting Toronto lineup. “Balls were up in the zone, open roof tonight, ball was flying a little bit,” Hammel said after the Orioles' 4-1 loss to Toronto at the Rogers Centre. “You put two and two together.” In his next breath, Hammel proposed a theory well beyond basic math.

Bud Norris, who was scheduled to pitch Friday in Toronto, has been scratched for the series with right elbow soreness. He will skip a full turn and hopes to pitch again in Boston. Jason Hammel will take his place Friday at Rogers Centre. Norris said the discomfort is more of a "fatigue and tightness kind of thing," and with a little rest should be fine. “I've been battling it for a couple starts. It's this time of year," Norris said. "I definitely didn't want to miss any time but I figure it'll just be this one and go from there.

Don't compare the intensity of the meetings between the Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays to the heated rivalry games between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox quite yet, but make no doubt that there was no love lost between the teams following the Orioles' 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon at the Rogers Centre. The first two games of this series between the Orioles and Blue Jays have been heated, from Orioles manager Buck Showalter's ejection Friday to the continuing war of words between Orioles reliever Darren O'Day and Toronto slugger Jose Bautista that reached its peak Saturday.

The last time Orioles closer Jim Johnson had walked off the mound, it was after his fourth blown save in five opportunities Sunday, when was unable to preserve a three-run ninth-inning lead in a 6-5 walk-off loss to Toronto at Rogers Centre . But when Johnson took the mound in the ninth inning Wednesday night, he was greeted by a chorus of cheers and a loud ovation from the Camden Yards crowd. Minutes later, the right-hander shut the door on a 9-6 victory over the Washington Nationals with a quick, 11-pitch inning that ended with a three-pitch strikeout of second baseman Danny Espinosa for his 16th save of the season.

Orioles closer Jim Johnson entered the ninth inning of Sunday afternoon's game against the Toronto Blue Jays coming off two clean outings, including saving a one-run win the day before. But Johnson walked off the field -- with Blue Jays players running around the field in jubilation -- with an all too familiar feeling of frustration. Johnson couldn't preserve a three-run, ninth-inning lead, blowing his fourth save in his past five opportunities in the Orioles' 6-5 walkoff loss at the Rogers Centre.

TORONTO - Given the way the Orioles and Blue Jays have been scoring runs over the past three days here at the hitter-friendly Rogers Centre, both teams realize winning is just a matter of outlasting their opponent offensively. The teams have combined for 45 runs in the first three games of the series, with the Orioles' 6-5 win over the Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon being the lowest offensive total of the series but still a slugfest. “That's how it's been,” said Orioles center fielder Adam Jones, whose eight homers at the Rogers Centre since the beginning of last season are the most by any opposing player in that span.
