Umpire injured in Orioles-Jays game released from hospital

Once his neck was immobilized, Scott was lifted onto a cart and driven off the field, exiting through a gate in the left field corner.

We'll let you know if there's any additional information on Scott's condition.

Umpire Dale Scott is taken from the field after being hit in the facemask by a foul tip.

"(Gausman) had his pitch count under control (97 for the game) until they made him work the last couple of innings", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Coghlan was 0 for 2 in his Toronto debut.

Edwards Jr. had yet to allow a run in 4 1/3 innings this season, allowing just one hit while striking out four. The Blue Jays' 28 runs are the fewest in the majors.

Kim then scored his first run of the season, as J.J. Hardy launched a home run to left-center field.

Veteran umpire Dale Scott was diagnosed with a concussion after taking a vicious foul tip off the lower portion of his mask during Friday's Orioles-Blue Jays game in Toronto.

"The one thing that's encouraging about tonight is we got some hits", said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. But the Orioles perhaps pushed their luck a little too far, as Asher hit Bautista leading off the 7th, advancing to second when Tulo poked a ball through the middle with one out.

Sanchez worked easily through the first four innings, but for a span of 10 batters, from the start of the fifth until he was replaced with two out in the sixth, the 24-year-old gave up six hits - including three homers and two doubles.

Toronto brought the winning run to the plate in the ninth before closer Zach Britton struck out Steve Pearce to lock down his fifth save. There was a rare early rally, a rare multi-run inning and a rare lead after playing 28 consecutive innings at the Rogers Centre either tied or behind.

More good news? For the first time on this stand, at any stage of any game, the home team held a lead. A potentially unsafe collision was avoided when the bat hit the final panel of safety screen in front of the on-field seats behind home plate. The Orioles selected the contract of RHP Stefan Crichton from Triple-A Norfolk and designated RHP Oliver Drake for assignment. The Orioles obtained LHP Paul Fry from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for an worldwide bonus slot. When Baltimore righty Alec Asher takes the ball Saturday, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Coghlan in the starting lineup given his career.268/.341/.424 batting line against right-handers.

The Orioles threatened in the seventh inning when Schoop hit a one-out double and moved to third on a wild pitch.

The Blue Jays have started off their season with an abysmal 1-8 record and they already sit 5.5 games back of the division leader, the Baltimore Orioles.
