Orioles Win A Series!!!
The Orioles opened their series against the White Sox on Friday with a rare stellar pitching performance from Jeremy Guthrie (7 IP allowing 1 ER) as the O's won 5-1. Brian Roberts hit 2 home runs in the game while driving in 3 runs. Nick Markakis and Ty Wigginton drove in the other runs for the O's.
On Saturday, the O's bats were silenced by John Danks as the White Sox won 4-1. Danks wasn't spectacular as he walked 6 batters, but he pitched out of several jams and allowed only 1 run in 6 1/3 innings. David Hernandez lasted only 4 innings, giving up 3 runs on 3 hits and 3 walks.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Adam Jones!
Jones has cooled off recently since his impressive first half. In this game he went 0/4, leaving 5 men on base.
Today the O's earned the series win as they beat the Sox 5-4. Jason Berken pitched well enough (2 earned runs in 5 2/3 innings) to earn is 3rd win of the season. Nolan Reimold and Felix Pie each homered and drove in 2 runs to lead the O's offense.
Tomorrow the O's open a 3 game series against the Minnesota Twins. Go Brett Favre!
