Friday was supposed to be a rare good-news day in the land of the Blue Jays.

They welcomed back Jose Bautista and Brandon Morrow — two of their best and most important players — through the revolving doors of a clubhouse, which this year has been home to more than 52 different players.

The season, upended by injuries and the unravelling of ace Ricky Romero, may be lost, but for this one day fans should have been granted some respite from the relentless disappointment.

Instead, Chris Davis and the Baltimore Orioles had to go and spoil everything.

Davis hit three home runs Friday, becoming the 16th player ever to accomplish the feat against the Jays, as Baltimore defeated Toronto 6-4 in front of a loud, Camden Yards' crowd of 25,754.
