Orioles wasn’t much different than the 106 that preceded it.Baltimore managed only three hits in falling to Toronto 5-0 on Monday night and tied an Orioles record for losses in a season.“It’s frustrating Hank Aaron Jersey , to say the least,” first baseman Chris Davis said. “Once we hit 100, it was kind of like, I don’t know, I honestly didn’t have any words for it. It was embarrassing.”Rookie Ryan Borucki pitched eight sharp innings for the Blue Jays, who have won 13 of 17 games between the two bottom teams in the AL East.Toronto stands 25 games better than the Orioles, whose 43-107 record is worst in the majors. Since the franchise came to Baltimore in 1954, the only other Orioles team with 107 defeats was the 1988 club http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , which started 0-21 on its way to a 54-107 finish.The franchise record for losses is 111, by the 1939 St. Louis Browns — a mark well within reach of this team.“It’s one of those things you never want to be associated with,” Davis said.Baltimore has been blanked 15 times and owns a major league-worst 26-49 record at home. Only 8,198 fans showed up at soggy Camden Yards to watch yet another defeat.The major league record is 120 losses, set by the expansion New York Mets in 1962. With a victory over the White Sox on Sunday, the Orioles can’t lose more than 119.Not that it’s any consolation in a lost season.“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little down right now because of the loss and the way things are going,” said Davis, who’s batting .172 as the highest-paid player on the team.Borucki (4-4) gave up three singles Julio Teheran Jersey , struck out seven and walked one in his 15th career start. The left-hander allowed two runners to reach third base, one of whom got there during a near triple play.“Defense made a lot of nice plays for me and I was getting a lot of ground balls,” Borucki said.With runners on first and second and no outs in the Baltimore third, Austin Wynns hit a low liner to shortstop Lourdes Gurriel Jr., who gloved the ball and then let it drop to the ground. The ploy caught the Orioles flat-footed, and Toronto turned a 6-4-3 double play before Baltimore’s Renato Nunez barely beat the relay to third base.“A lower throw we get three,” Toronto manager John Gibbons said. “With first and second and no out, that’s big. They get a knock there you have a different score.”The Blue Jays got all the offense they needed in the third inning against Evan Phillips http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , who was obtained from Atlanta in the July 31 trade that sent Kevin Gausman and Darren O’Day to the Braves.Making his first major league start, Phillips (0-1) retired the first five batters he faced before Kevin Pillar doubled, Rowdy Tellez hit an RBI single and Danny Jansen homered to left. Pillar homered in the seventh, and Aledmys Diaz went deep in the ninth.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: 3B Brandon Drury had the brace removed from his fractured left hand and is beginning a strengthening regiment, to be followed by hitting. Obtained in the trade that sent J.A. Happ to the Yankees, Drury is likely done for the season. … RHP Justin Shafer had an MRI, which revealed a flexor strain in his right elbow. He will be shut down until the team returns to Toronto, then re-evaluated.Orioles: C Chance Sisco remained in concussion protocol after being struck in the chin by a foul ball in Sunday’s game against the White Sox.UP NEXTBlue Jays: Aaron Sanchez (4-6 David Justice Jersey , 4.90 ERA) makes his 20th start, the fifth since returning from the 60-day DL with a finger injury. He pitched seven innings of three-hit ball against Boston last week.Orioles: Dylan Bundy (8-14, 5.48 ERA) seeks to win a second straight start. He was winless since July 29 before defeating Oakland last Thursday. A look at what’s happening around the majors today:DEPLETED RIVALRYThe Yankees and Red Sox open a four-game series at Fenway Park with the two best records in the majors, but minus key players.Chris Sale, who tops the big leagues in strikeouts and leads the AL in ERA, had been scheduled to start for Boston. He went on the disabled list this week because of left shoulder inflammation, so Brian Johnson will pitch in his place. Johnson will face a lineup that’s missing Aaron Judge – the New York slugger has a broken wrist after being hit by a pitch last week.The Red Sox lead the Yankees by 5 1/2 games in the AL East.HIS TURN-ERDodgers sparkplug Justin Turner could come off the disabled list for the series finale at home against Milwaukee. He’s been out with a groin injury, and is batting .259 with five home runs and 20 RBIs in an injury-interrupted season.With Turner at third base http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , recently acquired Manny Machado would move over to shortstop and settle in with newcomer Brian Dozier at second base.WANT HIM?Reliever Shawn Kelley is looking for a job after his tantrum cost him a spot in Washington’s bullpen. Kelley was cut Wednesday – a day earlier, he threw his glove to the ground and glared into the dugout after giving up a home run in the ninth inning of a 25-4 romp over the Mets. The 34-year-old righty was 1-0 with a 3.34 ERA in 35 games this season.”It was a disrespectful act. … I thought it warranted him leaving the team,” Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said.BACK TO WORKAstros star Carlos Correa will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Corpus Christi after missing more than a month with a back injury. He says he expects to play shortstop for the Hooks and hopes the rehab assignment will last only about a week.Correa has been out since late June with lower back soreness. He is hitting .268 with 13 home runs and 49 RBIs in 73 games for the AL West leaders.IN PLAYSmooth-fielding shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria is available after being cut by Tampa Bay. The Rays designated him for assignment to open a roster spot for newly acquired outfielder Tommy Pham. The 29-year-old infielder was hitting .258 with three homers and 26 RBIs, and he had lost his starting role to rookie Willy Adames.
