Lawrie Stars In Debut As Blue Jays Beat Orioles 5-4

BALTIMORE (AP)– Brett Lawrie got two hits and an RBI in his major league debut, Aaron Hill drove in two runs, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-4 on Friday night.

Lawrie hit a run-scoring single in his first at-bat and singled in the eighth inning, missing a chance for a second RBI when Colby Rasmus was thrown out at the plate.

Obtained last winter in a trade with Milwaukee, Lawrie, 21, is the 17th Canadian to play for the Blue Jays. He made an error at third base in the second inning, but it was inconsequential.

Brad Mills (1-1) allowed three runs and four hits in 5 1/3 innings to earn his second big league win. The first was on June 28, 2010, against Baltimore.
