Alright, let's do this.
Jeremy Guthrie's woes continued on Monday as he gave up 5 runs on 11 hits in 4 2/3 innings. This poor performance, coupled with a lackluster offensive showing from the O's, led to a rout as they lost 9-1.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Jeremy Guthrie!
He sure isn't pitching like a staff ace.
On Tuesday, David Hernandez pitched well (2 earned runs in 6 2/3 innings) and the O's scored just enough runs to earn him the 3-2 victory. The 3 O's runs were driven in by Brian Roberts, Adam Jones, and Melvin Mora.
On Wednesday, Jason Berken pitched better than normal (3 earned runs in 5 innings) but the O's still fell to the A's 6-3, as Cla Meredith and Mark Hendrickson each gave up a run late to put the game out of reach.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Ty Wigginton!
Wigginton went 0/4 while leaving 4 men on base.
The O's opened up a weekend series against the Angels yesterday with a little Felix Pie magic that I will talk about tomorrow. Until then, enjoy the losing O's fans.
