BALTIMORE - The good news is that the Blue Jays snapped out of their home run drought.

The bad news is that the Orioles have yet to hit one.

In lamenting the Jays need home runs to win, manager John Gibbons didn’t mention the fact that his pitchers have to stop giving them up.

Gibbons noted the potency of the Baltimore Orioles lineup before the game and they certainly lived up to their billing as the O’s crashed three homers against Mark Buehrle en route to an 8-5 beating of the sinking Jays.
