The O's Still Have A Little Fight Left In Them!?
The O's went into Yankee Stadium this past weekend and actually put together a decent series. This is how it went down:
On Friday, the Orioles pounded out 10 runs on 16 hits as they earned a 10-4 victory. Chris Tillman struck out 8 Yankees in 5 innings, earning his 2nd victory of the year. Brian Roberts led the Orioles with 3 RBIs. On a weird side note, Mark Hendrickson pitched 3 innings for his first career save.
On Saturday, Brian Roberts tore apart Yankees pitching for the second straight game as he went 3/4 with a HR and 4 RBIs. Nolan Reimold also added a HR for the O's as they won 7-3. Brian Matusz had as strong outing, allowing 1 run in 7 innings.
On Sunday, the O's lost 13-3. It was 5-3 going into the bottom of the 8th inning until Chris Waters and Bob McCrory surrendered 8 runs (O's bullpen! woooo). Justin Turner, Chad Moeller, and Jeff Fiorentino (3 future Hall of Famers) each drove in a run for the O's.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Bob McCrory!
McCrory surrendered 4 runs in the bottom of the 8th without recording an out.
