So maybe I was wrong in yesterday's post about the O's winning this game. I was right about Luke Hochevar pitching horribly (he lasted only 3 1/3 innings). But, what I didn't foresee was the Orioles somehow still losing even though the Royals committed 4 errors.
The O's took a quick 3-0 lead in the 3rd inning and it was all downhill from there. Starting pitcher Koji Uehara gave up 3 earned runs in the 5th and the O's were unable to retake the lead, eventually losing 7-4.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner today is... Jim Johnson!
With the O's tied up with the Royals 4-4 in the 8th inning, Johnson entered the game and upheld the Orioles bullpen time honored tradition of sucking. He gave up 3 earned runs in just 1/3 of an inning. Johnson is now tied with Mark Hendrickson for the CWA lead. It's your move Mark.
