Let's be honest. This blog is dead. I doubt we will continue to write for it much more in the future. But I feel like I owe it to myself to finish off this O's season.
Here's the deal. I'm going to do the rest of the recaps in this post and then I'm going to make another post with a full season recap. I hope you enjoy. I am depressed about the Ravens so it will actually be nice to write about the O's one last time before next year (I can't believe I just said that).
Anyways, lets rewind back to the end of September.
9/28: The O's got a decent starting pitching effort from Mark Hendrickson, as he surrendered 3 runs in 6 innings. Melvin Mora and Brian Roberts each drove in 2 runs for the O's, but the bullpen sucked yet again, as the O's were handed a 7-6 loss at the hands of the Tampa Bay Rays.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Douchey Matt Albers!
Douchey! It's been awhile. A stint in the minors wasn't enough to straighten out his below average abilities. He gave up 3 earned runs in 2/3 of an inning.
9/29: Jeremy Guthrie was handed his 17th loss of the season as the O's lost 3-1. Not much to say about this one. The O's bats were silenced by Wade Davis and the Rays squeaked out enough runs to get the win.
The BWP Clipped Wing Award winner for this game is... Peter Angelos!
God I hate this guy so much. Thanks for making baseball depressing.
9/30: David Hernandez continued his spectacular season, surrendering 5 runs in 4 1/3 innings as the O's lost 5-3. Ty Wigginton drove in 2 runs with a pinch hit home run.

10/1: The O's avoided the sweep as they won 3-1. Jeff Fiorentino, Melvin Mora, and Nick Markakis drove in the O's runs and Chris Waters threw 5 solid innings, surrendering 1 earned run. Jim Johnson earned his 9th save of the season.
10/2: Jason Berken pitched horribly, but the O's pounded David Purcey for 7 runs as the O's won 13-7. Michael Aubrey had 2 homers and Matt Wieters had a HR as well for the O's.
10/3: Mark Hendrickson turned in another decent outing, giving up 3 runs in 6 1/3 innings to earn a 6-3 win for the O's. Jeff Fiorentino drove in 2 runs for the O's.
10/4: The O's earned the series sweep and ended the season on a positive note with a 5-4 victory. Jeremy Guthrie threw 7 2/3 solid innings and the Blue Jays committed 2 errors, allowing the O's to score the game winner in the bottom of the 11th inning.
And with that, the O's season mercifully came to a close. Stay tuned for a season recap. Yikes, Baltimore sports are depressing right now.
