Sorry for neglecting to post about yesterday's O's game. If you found yourself furiously refreshing BWP to see how the O's did, I apologize and I want to let you know that there is a site called ESPN.com that updates this data much faster than I do.
I spent most of yesterday drinking the Nectar of the Gods (BEER!!!), while playing wiffle ball and watching the NFL Draft. It was much too nice outside to sit around updating this website. Nonetheless, I promise I will not fall into the negligent and non-posting habits of the BWP Founding Fathers. So without further ado, here is your O's Update times 2.
Saturday: Rangers 6 - Orioles 5
Ian Kinsler loves playing the Orioles. 3 of his 7 HRs have now come off of the O's shitty pitching and he has nearly half of his season RBIs against Baltimore's finest.
The O's did their best to make the game interesting, scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th, but it was too little too late (Copyright hit pop sensation JoJo).
With another O's loss comes another Clipped Wing Award receipient. Today's BWP Clipped Wing Award Winner is Mark Hendrickson. Despite his impressive state line (5 ER in 4 1/3 IP), Hendrickson was unable to avoid receiving BWP's highest honor.
Sunday: Orioles 8 - Rangers 5
The Orioles are a resiliant team. After falling down 5-1, a lesser team might have given up and conceded defeat. But, with the help of HRs by B-Rob and Pac-Man, the O's scored 3 runs in both the 5th and 6th inning. They added a Geico State Farm Liberty Mutual Insurance Run on a Nick Markakis single in the 8th and George Sherrill pitched a scoreless 9th to earn the save.
After the game, reporters tried to meet up with O's starting pitcher Brad Burgeson to get his thoughts on his rough outing (5 ER in 4 IP). But they were told he stormed out of the clubhouse early after the O's took the lead, presumably upset that he was unable to receive the prestigious BWP Clipped Wing Award. Don't get down on yourself Brad, its a long season and you aren't very good. Your time will come.
The O's go for the series win tomorrow as they send out Jeremy Guthrie to face Matt Harrison at the Yard. As always, expect lots of hits and lots of runs [insert Donte Stallworth joke here].
