O’s Let Game 2 Slip Away; 4-3

Brad Bergesen loses his 4th game of the season.

Bergesen had one bad inning and that was the game. In the bottom of the 5th inning he got the lead off batter to ground out. The next batter hit a ball to short, but Ty Wiggington couldn’t handle the throw and the runner ended up on 2nd base. The next batter hit a homerun to give the White Sox the lead. They would go on to score 2 more runs despite Nolan Reimold and Nick Markakis throwing out runners at home on back to back plays to end the inning. Bergesen would end up going 6 innings giving up those 4 runs on 10 hits and 2 walks. Mark Hendrickson and George Sherrill each pitched a scoreless inning.

The Orioles got their first run in the 2nd when Ty Wiggington led off with a double, then Riemold doubled him in later in the inning. That would be it until the 9th inning, despite 12 hits in the game. The O’s tried to make another late inning comeback. Melvin Mora led off with a double. Reimold singled him in to cut it to 2. After two strikeouts, Brian Roberts singled in Reimold after he took 2nd base on defensive indifference. Unfortunately Markakis grounded out to end the game. Roberts had 3 hits in the game, Markakis had 2.

Player of the game: Nolan Reimold (2-4, R, 2 RBI, double (7) (.268 AVG))

The Orioles will try to avoid the series sweep tomorrow. At least we won’t have to face a lefty. Instead, we’ll go against Jose Contreras (4-7, 4.54). Jeremy Guthrie (6-8, 5.35) goes for the Orioles.
