O’s Bats Come Alive; Win 10-2

Jeremy Guthrie wins his 7th game of the season.

Guthrie pitched a great game. Looks like hes completely recovered from the flu he was suffering from. The only runs he gave up were on two solo homeruns. He went 8 innings and only gave up 3 hits and a walk, with 5 strikeouts. It would be nice if Guthrie could bounce back to form for the 2nd half of the season. Jim Johnson tossed a scoreless 9th to close the game.

The offense let loose with 10 runs on 11 hits. Every player in the lineup had at least one hit except for Nick Markakis, who got on base twice via walks. In the first inning Brian Roberts singled, stole second base, went to third on an overthrow, and scored on a wild pitch. The Orioles scored their second run on another wild pitch, this time with the bases loaded. That was followed by Melvin Mora getting hit by a pitch to re-load the bases, then back to back bases loaded walks made it 4-0. Gregg Zaun singled in the 5th run, then Cesar Izturis grounded into a double play but the 6th run was able to score before the force out ended the inning. The rest of our runs came in the 9th when Luke Scott doubled in a run, then Zaun hit a 3 run homer.

Player of the game: Gregg Zaun (3-4, R, 4 RBI, BB, HR (4) (.253 AVG))

The O’s are headed to New York to face the Yankees tonight. David Hernandez (2-2, 3.94) goes against Andy Pettite (8-5, 4.85).
