Tongue My Wieters.

That sexy piece of ass above is Adam Jones in bobblehead form. The first 25,000 fans to attend yesterday's O's game were proud recipients of that beauty (including "dedicated" BWP writers John, Greg, and I). But the free give away was not all the fans were treated to on Wednesday night; Matt Wieters hit his first major league home run and drove in his first 2 MLB RBIs, as the O's won 6-4.

Koji Uehara had a decent outing, giving up 2 runs in 5 innings and Aubrey Huff added a 2 run homer to tie the series at 1 apiece.

UPDATE: While writing yesterday's game recap, today's O's game just finished up so I will now do that recap.

Matt Wieters struck again today. With the O's down 4-3 in the bottom of the 9th, Wieters led off the inning with a double and K-Rod subsequently fell apart. The O's pinch ran Felix Pie for Wieters and K-Rod walked Nolan Reimold. Roberts then laid down a sacrifice bunt. The catcher tried to throw Pie out at third but his speedy legs were too fast for Omir Santos.

K-Rod then walked Adam Jones, bringing in a run and tying the game at 4. Then, Markakis struck out, setting the stage for BWP Clipped Wing Award leader Aubrey Huff to be the hero. He delivered with a single to right field, driving in Reimold to win the game 5-4.

The O's have now won all 3 of their series against NL opponents this season. Tomorrow they open a series against the Phillies so that streak should end.
