Blue Jays Lose One-Hitter to Orioles

BALTIMORE, Maryland -- Harold Baines' second-inning homer was the only hit off Toronto rookie Paul Menhart, but it was enough to give Mike Mussina his career-high eighth straight win as the Orioles beat the Blue Jays 1-0.


Menhart (1-2), making his third major league start, pitched his first complete game while striking out three and walking four Wednesday.


Baines' 15th homer was enough offense for Mussina, who did not allow a runner past second base. The ball traveled well over the center-field wall.


Reds 6, Mets 2. In Cincinnati, David Wells got a dugout pep talk from his new boss, then pitched seven-plus innings to win his Reds debut and beat the Mets.


Wells (1-0), acquired Monday night in a trade with Detroit, allowed nine hits and struck out six over 7 1/3 innings to remain unbeaten since May 18. The left-hander had won his last nine decisions with the Tigers.


Padres 11, Giants 3. In San Diego, the Padres scored all 11 of their runs in the eighth inning, including Melvin Nieves' grand slam, to beat the Giants.


The Padres began with back-to-back RBI singles by Jody Reed and Tony Gwynn. Reed scored the tying run on a Kirt Manwaring passed ball. Shawn Barton (2-1) walked Archi Cianfrocco with the bases loaded to make it 4-3.


Ron Villone (1-0), obtained Monday from Seattle for Andy Benes, pitched two shutout innings for his first win.
