Yankees Complete Sweep, Beat O’s 6-4

Jason Berken loses again to make his record 1-8.

It could’ve been worse for Berken. He gave up 4 runs in the first inning, but settled down and only gave up one more run the rest of his time in the game on a Jorge Posada homerun. He ended up going 6 innings giving up 5 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks. At this point I would keep him in the rotation a little longer and remove Rich Hill to make room for Chris Tillman. Cla Meredith made his Oriole debut today, hitting a batter and giving up a single, but he got out of the inning without giving up a run because he struck out Derek Jeter and got Mark Texeira to hit into a double play. George Sherrill struck out the side in the 8th, but not before giving up a run on 3 hits and a walk.

The Orioles scored 4 runs, but it was too little too late. In the 7th inning we got 2 runs on a Nick Markakis sacrifice fly and a wild pitch. In the 9th Adam Jones and Markakis hit back to back homeruns but that would be it. Jones had a great game, his first 4 hit game of the season, with 2 singles, a double, and that homerun. Gregg Zaun continued to bring a hot bat off the bench, going 2 for 3 with a walk. Luke Scott and Robert Andino each had a single and a walk.

Player of the game: Adam Jones (4-5, 2 R, RBI, double (18), HR (14) (.307 AVG))

The O’s have a much needed day off tomorrow before heading into Boston on Friday. Brad Bergesen (6-4, 3.51) goes against Brad Penny (6-4, 5.02).
