Toronto's rookie pitcher scatters 4 hits against O's

BY foxsports • July 11, 2009

His work done, Brett Cecil joined friends and family to watch the postgame fireworks display at Camden Yards.

Cecil outpitched Jason Berken in a duel between struggling rookies, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles 2-0 Friday night to snap a three-game skid.

Cecil (3-1) allowed four hits over six innings to earn his first win in five starts since May 15. It was a delightful homecoming for Cecil, who grew up in Dunkirk, Md., and played for the University of Maryland before being drafted by Toronto in the first round of the 2007 draft.

"I only left 15 tickets but ... there's a ton more people that came," the left-hander said. "I saw guys up there that I haven't seen in a while that came down to congratulate me. I love coming home to play."
