BALTIMORE -- In a matchup between the two top teams in the AL East, a rookie right-hander got the best of a 35-year-old looking for his major-league leading 11th win. Nike Air Vapormax Plus Rea . Kevin Gausman gave up one run over six innings and Delmon Young homered as the Baltimore Orioles beat Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 on Thursday night. Nick Markakis had two hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who moved within 3 1-2 games of first-place Toronto. Gausman (2-1) allowed five hits, walked three and struck out three in his second consecutive solid outing. The 2012 first-round draft pick stymied Oakland on June 7 after being recalled from Triple-A Norfolk and now appears to be a fixture in the starting rotation. Well, maybe. "Hes done what it takes to be considered," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "Hes taking care of his end of it." Gausman, 23, has given up only two runs in 13 innings during his latest stint with Baltimore. "I feel good about what Ive done. I feel comfortable right now," Gausman said. "Whatever happens is going to be for the clubs best interest." Zach Britton worked the ninth for his sixth save. The victory wasnt secured, however, until a replay review confirmed the final out on a double-play grounder. Buehrle (10-3) yielded four runs and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings to lose his second straight start following a six-game winning streak. The left-hander allowed three runs or fewer in 12 of his previous 13 starts. "I feel like there were times I made a lot of mistakes and they made me pay for them" Buehrle said. "And I made a few good pitches and they put the ball in play and got some base hits." Toronto has lost three straight and five of six, scoring only four runs in those five defeats. "As hot as we were, we were going to cool off sooner or later," manager John Gibbons said. "Well get it going. Were too good of an offence. Well be OK." Baltimore needed just two at-bats to take a 2-0 lead. Markakis led off with a single and the seldom-used Young sent a changeup into the seats in left field, his first home run since April 8, and only the fourth against Buehrle this season. It was the eighth straight game in which Toronto allowed the opposition to score first. In those games, the Blue Jays have been outscored 16-4 in the first three innings. "It seems like weve gone out as starting pitchers and given up runs in the first inning," Buehrle said. "When your offence is struggling to score runs ... it kind of seems its taking the wind right out of our sails. We got to do a better job going out there and throwing up zeroes." The Orioles made it 3-0 in the third. Manny Machado led off with a double to end an 0-for-18 skid and Caleb Joseph delivered an RBI single. Toronto got a run in the fifth when Juan Francisco doubled and came home on a single by Melky Cabrera. The double ended Baltimores string of 23 innings without allowing an extra-base hit, and the run snapped the Orioles streak of 19 consecutive scoreless innings. That would be the only flaw in an otherwise solid performance by Gausman, who was 0-1 with a 6.14 ERA in his previous four appearances against Toronto. "Gausman was good tonight," Gibbons said. "Hes got that overpowering fastball. He was keeping it in the zone. I think in the past hes had some control issues, but its all coming together for him." Doubles by Jonathan Schoop and Markakis put Baltimore up 4-1 in the seventh, and Toronto got a run off Ryan Webb in the eighth when Jose Bautista doubled, stole third and scored on a groundout by Adam Lind. NOTES: Toronto OF Colby Rasmus (right hamstring) went 1 for 3 in his first rehab start Thursday, serving as DH for Triple-A Buffalo. ... Baltimore will send Ubaldo Jimenez (2-7) to the mound Friday night in the second game of the series. Jimenez is 0-5 with a 7.04 ERA in six home starts. Drew Hutchison (4-4) will start for Toronto. ... Baltimore pitchers have gone 42 straight innings without allowing a home run. ... Torontos Jose Reyes opened the game with a single to extend his hitting streak to 13 games. ... Markakis passed Brian Roberts and moved into sole possession of seventh place on the Orioles career list with 1,453 hits. Air Max Tn Dam . The 2010 batting champ showed what he can do when hes mostly healthy. Gonzalez homered, doubled and singled in his return to the lineup, and the Colorado Rockies snapped a five-game losing streak with a 13-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night. Nike Vapormax Rea . 5 Trade Deadline isnt that far away and teams will be making decisions on whether to buy, sell and decide which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value. http://www.airvapormaxsverige.com/ . The Canadians led for much of the game before Argentina forced overtime in the dying seconds of the fourth quarter. Canada weathered the storm after squandering a lead with a series of made shots. "Its a fantastic win for our country with 11 first-time Canadian national team members," said head coach Roy Rana.DENVER -- Johnny Cueto took off his hat, tucked his glove inside it and cradled them both like a football in his left arm as he sauntered ever-so-slowly off the mound after each inning. This was his little routine and it was working effectively for him. Of course, so were his almost unhittable cutter and four-seam fastball. Cueto threw eight stellar innings to become the first 15-game winner in the majors and Kris Negron had a career-high four hits, including a tiebreaking single in the ninth, as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2 on Friday night. Cincinnatis ace came through in a big way. Cueto (15-6) allowed two runs and six hits to help the Reds snap a three-game skid. He is 7-0 since a loss at San Diego on July 2. "As a manager, its very comfortable being able to put your stock into one guy," Reds skipper Bryan Price said. "You go all in with Johnny and you dont fear losing the game late." Nolan Arenado was about the only Rockies hitter who was making good contact against Cueto. Arenado homered and had two deep flyouts. After watching Billy Hamilton catch his drive to centre in the eighth, Arenado passed by Cueto and grinned at something the pitcher said. "He was saying, You just missed that," Arenado recounted. "Hes one of the best in the league. Hes an animal. As the situation and innings got tighter, he got better." Negron lined a two-out single up the middle off Adam Ottavino (0-4) to bring in Ramon Santiago with the go-ahead run. Aroldis Chapman closed for his 26th save in 28 chances. Charlie Culberson drew a one-out walk and pinch-hitter Mike McKenry sent a shot down the line that first baseman Brayan Pena -- who started the game at catcher -- snared as he toppled over. Pena then touched first base with his glove to double up Culberson. Cueto worked his way out of a jam in the sixth after giving up a tying RBI double to Corey Dickerson. With one out and the bases loaded, Cueeto struck out Culberson with a 95 mph fastball and then fanned D. Nike Vapormax Herr Rea. J. LeMahieu with the same pitch. The hard-throwing righty splintered quite a few bats with his heavy pitches running in on the hands of hitters. "His cutter is just filthy," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "Theres a reason why hes been as successful as he has been." The Rockies turned reliever Matt Belisle into an emergency starter when Franklin Morales was a late scratch after his wife went into labour. Belisle and five other relievers kept the game close until the ninth. Belisle allowed one run and tossed a season-high 49 pitches in three innings. It was his first start since May 25, 2008, with the Reds. "When you sign the contract, it doesnt tell you when youre going to pitch," Belisle said. "I looked at it as a great opportunity." FAMILY AFFAIR Negron picked quite a game to have his parents and grandmother fly in from California. He jokingly said hes going to have them take him to the same restaurant and then sit in the same seats Saturday. TRAINERS ROOM Reds: 3B Todd Frazier was out of the starting lineup with a balky back, which he hurt the night after hitting a ball off the end of his bat. "Pain shot up the right side of my back," Frazier said. He said he thinks its a muscle strain in his lower back. Hes day to day. Rockies: Weiss said it "sounds like things went well" with SS Troy Tulowitzkis hip surgery Friday in Vail. OF Carlos Gonzalez will have surgery on his left knee Monday.

It will be Axelrods first major league start since last September. Rockies: RHP Jordan Lyles (6-1, 3.70 ERA) will make his third start since returning from the DL. He missed two months with a broken left hand. ' ' '
