The O's opened up a 3 game weekend series against the Red Sox and they picked up right where they left off in the Yankees series losing 2 of 3 games against the Sox.
On Friday, Brad Bergesen pitched well, giving up 3 runs in 6 innings, but the offense was pitched into submission by Brad Penny (he isn't good, but neither are the O's) as they lost 3-1. It is getting really old watching Bergesen pitch his heart out as his offense continually lets him down. We suck.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Luke Scott!
Scott went 0/4 with a strike out, while leaving 6 runners on base.
On Saturday, Jeremy Guthrie pitched like a little punk, giving up 5 runs in 6 2/3 innings as the O's lost 7-2. Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester mowed down the O's hitters, striking out 9 in 7 1/3 innings.

On Sunday, the O's won! I was starting to forget what it felt like. David Hernandez pitched a gem, allowing only 1 earned run in 7 innings as the O's won 6-2. Nick Markakis led the O's offense going 2/4 with a home run and 3 RBIs.
The O's opened a 4 game series against the Royals tonight. They are currently losing 5-3 and it looks like Rich Hill is poised to take the lead in the CWA standings. I'll have another update when I get a chance. Orioles Magic!
