Player Notes
Nelson Cruz had two homers, including a grand slam, to lead the Orioles to a 10-8 victory over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Advice: Apparently, it's not just the Red Sox he's useful against. Cruz had a solo shot off Dustin McGowan in the third and then the slam off Todd Redmond in the fifth. He has three homers and eight RBI against the Blue Jays the last two days. He's now driven in 21 runs in 19 games on the season.

Nelson Cruz went 2-for-5 with a three run home run, but the Orioles fell to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Advice: Cruz's fourth home run of the season came in the sixth inning, a three-run shot off of R.A. Dickey to break a scoreless tie. Cruz, who was teamless throughout the off-season, has rewarded the Orioles for their gamble with a productive start to the season. He is slashing .290/.372/.522 with 16 RBI in 78 trips to the plate.

Wed, Apr 23 Rotoworld
