Walker Texas Ranger Ain't Got Shit On The Orioles.
The Orioles did good against the Texas Rangers this past weekend. Let me tell you about it.
On Friday, Chris Tillman (5 ER in 6 IP) pitched poorly and the Orioles lost 5-1 as a result of this poor performance. Brian Roberts drove in the only run for the O's.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Chris Tillman!
See stats above.
On Saturday, Brian Matusz settled down after giving up 4 early runs and he pitched 7 strong innings as the O's won 5-4. Nolan Reimold homered and Melvin Mora homered and drove in 3 runs for the O's.
On Sunday, the O's earned the series win 7-0 behind the right arm of Jeremy Guthrie (7 IP 6 Ks). Brian Roberts, Chad Moeller, and Jeff Fiorentino (who?) each drove in 2 runs for the O's.
