BALTIMORE -- How appropriate the Baltimore Orioles were eliminated from the playoff hunt by a one-run defeat in extra innings. [ Antworten

BALTIMORE -- How appropriate the Baltimore Orioles were eliminated from the playoff hunt by a one-run defeat in extra innings. Juan Cuadrado Juventus Jersey . The Orioles dropped out of the post-season race Tuesday night, losing to the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 in 10 innings in a game that had an all too familiar feel for Baltimore. Baltimores sixth straight loss, combined with Clevelands comeback win over the Chicago White Sox, left the Orioles six games behind the Indians for the final wild-card slot with five games left. A year ago, the Orioles made the playoffs because they were outstanding in close games. Baltimore was 29-9 in one-run affairs and 16-2 in games that went extra innings. This year, those numbers are 17-31 and 8-7. What went wrong? "I dont know who youd have to talk to to get the answer to that one," shortstop J.J. Hardy said. "I dont know. Its just the way things worked out. We still believe were a good team, and were going to get better." The Orioles knew it was going to be nearly impossible to reach the post-season after they were swept in a four-game series in Tampa Bay before returning home. This defeat finalized the inevitable. "We play all the way from February 15th or whenever we started to get to the playoffs," Hardy said. "Its hard to think that after how many games weve played since then, were not going, so yeah, its tough." Torontos Mark DeRosa singled in the tying run in the eighth inning and put the Blue Jays ahead in the 10th. Sergio Santos (1-1) worked a perfect ninth and Casey Janssen got three outs for his 34th save. Jose Reyes drew a one-out walk in the Toronto 10th off Francisco Rodriguez (2-1) and Munenori Kawasaki singled. Reyes appeared to be picked off second but was called safe, drawing Orioles manager Buck Showalter out to argue the call. "The throw beat me but he dont touch me," Reyes said. "He dont tag me. It wasnt even close. That was the right call by the umpire." Brett Lawrie then hit into a fielders choice and DeRosa singled to right. Brian Roberts and Nate McLouth homered for the Orioles, whose six-game skid ties their longest of the season. Down the stretch, Baltimore lost its hitting touch and ability to win the tight ones. The scores of those six losses: 3-1, 5-4, 5-1, 3-1, 5-4 and 3-2. "For some reason, our consistency offensively wasnt there, as it should have been at the end," McLouth said Baltimore starter Chris Tillman gave up one run, five hits and a walk in seven innings. He tied a career high with nine strikeouts and left with a 2-1 lead, but the bullpen immediately gave up the advantage in the eighth. Reyes greeted Kevin Gausman with a single and reached third with one out before Lawrie struck out on a 3-2 pitch. DeRosa pinch hit for Adam Lind and delivered an opposite-field bloop single off Brian Matusz to knot the score at 2. Vying for his fourth straight win for the Blue Jays, starter Todd Redmond had a decent outing -- except for two pitches, the ones Roberts and McLouth sent over the scoreboard in right field in the third inning. Redmond allowed two runs and eight hits over 5 2-3 innings. "I didnt have my best stuff compared to my last couple of outings but I tried to give the guys a chance to win," the right-hander said. "The offence came through and we did." Toronto got a second-inning run when Ryan Goins hit a two-out RBI single. In the bottom half, the Orioles loaded the bases with one out but failed to score. In the third, however, Roberts and McLouth connected within a span of three pitches to put Baltimore up 2-1. It was the fifth time this season the Orioles hit back-to-back homers, the second time against the Blue Jays. But the lead ultimately wouldnt hold up -- as has been the case so often this season. "Its a lot of close games," Showalter said. "Theres some things we did well and some things we didnt. But theres a lot of good baseball ahead for this team and this organization." NOTES: An MRI on the left knee of Orioles 3B Manny Machado revealed no major ligament tears, and he could be running within two months. Machado was carted off the field after the injury occurred Monday against Tampa Bay. He was in the dugout and received an ovation when shown on the scoreboard. ...

With Englands Jermain Defoe possibly headed to the World Cup and reserve forward Bright Dike a long-term casualty due to an Achilles injury, Toronto needed help for Brazils Gilberto with Mondays MLS transfer deadline looming. Toronto also has forwards Andrew Wiedeman and teenager Jordan Hamilton, currently on loan to the Wilmington Hammerheads. Attacking midfielders Dwayne De Rosario, Issey Nakajima-Farran and Brazils Jackson are also an attacking option. Toronto (3-4-0) has just seven goals in seven games, with Defoe accounting for three of them. Thats tied with Los Angeles and Montreal as the lowest scoring output in the league. Agbossoumonde, 22, had fallen down the defensive pecking order with Steven Caldwell, Doneil Henry, Bradley Orr and rookie Nick Hagglund preferred ahead of him. "With our current depth in defence we felt that the opportunity to acquire an attacking player like Luke Moore was the right deccision to make at this time for the club as we approach the World Cup break," Toronto FC general manager Tim Bezbatchenko said in a statement. Leonardo Bonucci Jersey. "With Lukes experience, he will be a welcomed addition to our squad and provide more options for us up front. Wed like to thank Gale for all of his contributions both on and off the pitch and wish him well in Colorado." Moore was acquired earlier this season by Colorado from Chivas USA. The 28-year-old made six appearances, with two starts and no goals, for Chivas. He arrived in the MLS during the off-season from Turkeys Sanica Boru Elazigspor. Moore began his career in England with Aston Villa in 2003, and later was part of Swanseas rise to the Premier League in 2011. Agbossoumonde, 22, was originally acquired on Dec. 20, 2012 through a weighted lottery at MLS headquarters. In two seasons, the American defender made 13 appearances, including 12 starts. Paul Bravo, Colorados vice-president of soccer operations, called Agbossoumonde "a talented young player who can add depth to our backline." ' ' '
