Before I get all excited that the O's have actually put together a winning streak, I have to remember we are playing the Nationals. We haven't even really played that well the last few days. We have just sucked a little bit less than the Nats.
Last night, the O's were only able to muster 3 hits but they still won 2-1 as their bullpen pitched very well after Koji Uehara left in the 4th inning with a leg injury (as if the pitching rotation didn't have enough injury/sucking problems already). Aubrey Huff had the game winning hit with a pinch-hit triple in the 7th inning that scored Cesar Izturis. George Sherrill pitched a perfect 9th inning, striking out the side to earn his 9th save of the season.
With the win, the O's assured themselves of a series victory and today they go for the sweep. The O's are 1-5 on Sunday's this year and 0-3 when going for the 3 game sweep. Hopefully they can go against the season trends and pull this one out.
