In his second start since returning from elbow ligament replacement surgery, Shawn Hill (0-2) gave up three runs, two earned, and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings.

“Curveball is nonexistent, which I certainly have to work on before my next start,” he said. “Overall, velocity was there. There were certain things that were there. I’m still a ways from being where I want to be.”

Baltimore went up 1-0 in the fourth when Luke Scott hit a leadoff double and scored on a single by Felix Pie.

In the fifth, after Markakis hit his 10th homer, Ty Wigginton singled and took second on a throwing error by catcher John Buck. Pie then bounced an RBI single up the middle.

Much of the damage in the Baltimore’s big seventh inning came against right-hander Josh Roenicke, who yielded four runs, three hits and a walk without getting an out. He also made an error.

Roenicke’s father, Gary, played for the Orioles from 1978-85 and now is a scout for the team.

NOTES: Toronto’s Edwin Encarnacion and Baltimore’s Josh Bell both struck out three times. … Orioles LHP Brian Matusz, who left Monday’s game with a bruised left triceps, did not throw Tuesday. Showalter said that at worst, Matusz would miss one start. … Baltimore 2B Brian Roberts, who was hit by a pitch above his right knee Monday night, did not play.
