BALTIMORE — Tommy Hunter allowed three hits over six innings, Matt Wieters homered off the glove of left fielder Eric Thames, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Hunter (2-1) allowed one run, walked three and struck out three. The only runner to get past first base against the right-hander was Thames, who hit a long home run in the third inning.
Pedro Strop, the fourth Orioles reliever, pitched the ninth for his first career save. Baltimore's usual closer, Jim Johnson, spent Monday night in a hospital with flulike symptoms and was unavailable, manager Buck Showalter said before the game.
Henderson Alvarez (0-2) took the loss despite allowing only two runs and five hits over seven innings.
