The game isn't quite over yet but I need to be up early tomorrow so I'm doing a quick recap before bed.
As of the beginning of the 9th inning, the score is 8-1 Mariners, and judging by the O's hitting lately, it is safe to assume this game is over. Rookie David Hernandez got roughed up today, giving up 5 runs on 10 hits, and the O's offense was subdued by Erik Bedard as the Mariners led the game the whole way.
The bullpen returned to their shaky ways, giving up 3 runs in 2 1/3 innings effectively ending the O's chance of a comeback before it even started.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for tonight's game is... David Hernandez!
It is never good when your starting pitcher gives up as many runs as the innings he has pitched and that is what Hernandez did in this game (5 runs in 5 1/3 innings).
Later today, the O's send Brad Bergesen to the hill in the rubber match of the 3 game series. The Mariners counter with Jason Vargas (who I am not really familiar with). So it is anyone's guess as to how tomorrow's game will turn out. Hopefully the O's bats wake up and Wieters starts to look a little better. Tune in at 10 to find out.
Update: As I was typing this, the O's added a sacrifice fly in the 9th and the game is now over, 8-2.
