MINNEAPOLIS – Three Blue Jays relievers combined to set a dubious franchise record in one of the ugliest and strangest late-game meltdowns youll see on a baseball field. Terrell Owens Youth Jersey . Steve Delabar, Sergio Santos and J.A. Happ walked eight Twins in a six-run bottom of the eighth which saw Minnesota turn a 5-3 deficit into a 9-5 lead, the score by which the home side would win to sweep Thursdays doubleheader. In scoring their six runs in the eighth, the Twins needed only one hit. Santos, tagged with the blown save and the loss, walked the only three hitters he faced and threw three wild pitches, each of which resulted in runs. Manager John Gibbons, stunned after the game, had never seen anything like it. "No, I sure cant remember," said Gibbons. "We just couldnt throw strikes. We didnt pitch good all series. Its cold, okay, but you know what, its cold for both sides. If youre ever going to get to September, October in the playoffs, its going to be cold. We didnt pitch very well. We were in position to win that one and we coughed it up. Its a crappy ending to a crappy day, Ill tell you that." Asked to clarify whether hed heard any of his pitchers or position players griping about the frigid conditions at Target Field, Gibbons wasnt spilling. "No, no complaints about that," he said. The previous franchise record for walks in an inning was seven, set in the first inning of a 13-1 loss to the Red Sox on June 21, 1994. Somebody named Brad Cornett started that game and walked three. Scott Brow picked him up in relief and was responsible for the next four bases on balls. Truly historic and truly vexing for a bullpen that hadnt blown a lead all season; a bullpen that hadnt allowed an inherited run to score, for goodness sakes, until Todd Redmond allowed two of R.A. Dickeys runners to cross in the opening game of the twin bill, a 7-0 defeat. Youll watch the next 38 years of Blue Jays baseball and youll probably never see six runs scored on eight walks, three wild pitches and just one hit, again. "Im obviously one of the main guys to blame there," said Delabar, who walked the first two hitters and then was lifted for Santos after a sacrifice bunt advanced the runners. "I put them in a bad situation there behind me. The hitters didnt deserve what we did that inning. That was brutal." Gibbons went to Santos looking for the strikeout but the closer was wild, bouncing slider after slider, giving catcher Dioner Navarro a workout. Three of those spiked breaking pitches got by his catcher, each resulted in a run and suddenly the Twins were ahead. His three walks compounded the issue. "Coming into that situation, I had to be perfect," said Santos. "Looking back now I was trying to be too perfect there. Tough, obviously, when you see your guys, the position players, they go out and play in this cold weather and so many innings. You know, its just a long day and those are just games that youd like." The inning was bizarre enough and long enough to facilitate each of the five stages of grief. First there was denial; could this be happening? Based on the reaction on Twitter, rarely an appropriate gauge of rationality but itll do for the moment, fans were angry. Bargaining followed, with pleas for Santos to throw a strike or to induce an inning-ending double play. Fans sunk into depression once the Twins had taken the lead and by the time it was 9-5 and all hope was lost, they came to accept the result. An ugly night at the office, to be sure, but context is important. This is still a top notch bullpen. It had, to borrow an appropriate adjective from Gibbons, a crappy evening. Its blown only one lead all season and it happened to do so in historic and spectacular fashion. The Blue Jays cant get it back. Its off to Cleveland, 3-3 on the road trip and 8-8 on the season. The relievers likely will have to contribute significantly if the Jays are to knock off the Indians, a playoff wild card team last season. Such is the beauty of baseball. With games almost everyday, theres no time to dwell on the ugly performances. Bob Lilly Jersey .

Jonathan Schoop and Adam Jones connected in a four-run eighth inning, and Baltimore completed a two-game sweep of the rain-shortened series with a 5-3 win Wednesday night. The Orioles lead the majors with 152 home runs, are 35-10 when hitting more than one and 58-25 when going deep at least once. After Schoop tied it with a drive off Dellin Betances, Shawn Kelley (2-4) gave up a single and a walk before Jones hit a shot into the bullpen area beyond the centre-field wall. "When were down by one we always feel were just one pitch away," Jones said. "So that happened, and once we tie the game all the marbles are up. First one to score one wins." Jones made it happen. As the ball dropped over the fence for his 23rd home run, he raised his right arm in triumph as he rounded first base. "Big spot, big home run," Jones said. "Nothing wrong with showing a little emotion here and there." Darren ODay (4-1) worked the eighth and Zach Britton gave up a run in the ninth en route to his 25th save. It was the eighth straight series win for the AL East-leading Orioles, who increased their margin over the fading third-place Yankees to eight games. Baltimore is 8-3 against New York this season, outscoring the Yankees 60-31. "Its tough right now because they are hitting very good," New Yorks Francisco Cervelli said. "Theyve got a couple of hitters who are really hot right now." Yankees manager Joe Girardi missed the finish after being ejected in the seventh inning by home plate umpire Gerry Davis. Girardi was furious after Davis called New Yorks Stephen Drew out for running in the baseline on his way to first base. "Yeah, well, Gerry was wrong," Girardi said. Girardis second ejection of the year came with New York ahead 2-1 on the strength of Cervellis second home run of the year, a two-run drive in the third inning off Chris&nbbsp;Tillman. Tony Romo Youth Jersey. The lead didnt stand up, and now the Yankees are stuck in a four-game skid and scrambling to stay in the playoff hunt. "Weve got to start winning series again," Girardi said. "We have not won the last two series and we put ourselves in a little bit of a hole." Making his first appearance in the big leagues since April 23, New York starter Michael Pineda retired the first 12 batters he faced before Nelson Cruz doubled to open the fifth. Pineda allowed one run and two hits over five innings. After being suspended for 10 games for using a foreign substance on the mound in April, the right-hander went on the disabled list with a shoulder muscle injury. He left after throwing 67 pitches. "We thought he started getting the ball up a little bit," Girardi said. Baltimore played without its two starters on the left side of the infield. Third baseman Manny Machado was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right knee ligament and shortstop J.J. Hardy missed a third straight game with a sprained left thumb. Tillman gave up two runs and five hits in seven innings. TRAINERS ROOM Yankees: After throwing fastballs off flat ground, RHP Masahiro Tanaka (elbow inflammation) said through an interpreter, "I feel good because everything is progressing in the way that I want it to." Girardi said, "Our hope is hell pitch in September." Orioles: Machado said his injury is "not as bad as we thought." Hardy hopes to return for the weekend series in Cleveland. UP NEXT Yankees: After taking Thursday off, the Yankees open a three-game series in Tampa Bay. Girardi has opted to start Hiroki Kuroda on Sunday instead of Chris Capuano. Orioles: Baltimore gets a day off before facing the Indians to launch a nine-game road trip that includes a weeks stay in Chicago, where it will face the White Sox and Cubs. BEAST IN THE EAST The Orioles are 30-19 against AL East foes, the best in-division record in the AL. New York is 21-25 in the division, which goes a long way toward explaining its deficit in the East. ' ' '
