Hammel homers hurting Orioles (O's lose 4-1)

Jason Hammel doesn't give up home runs.

Until tonight.

Now he's passing them out like ballpark peanuts.

Hammel has served up four home runs in five innings, all of them solo shots to give Toronto a 4-1 lead.

The roll call consists of Edwin Encarnacion, Rajai Davis, Brett Lowrie and Colby Rasmus. I'm waiting for Pat Borders and Garth Iorg to grab a bat.

Once again, starting pitching is hurting the Orioles.

So is their lack of offense.

Maybe they need to get angry again. Where's Doug Eddings tonight?

Hammel allowed three home runs all season before tonight. He's exceeded that total in five innings.

Didn't see that coming.

Update: The Orioles have lost five in a row, and they've been swept by Toronto for the first time since Sept. 2010.
