Modest Win Streak Ends In 4-1 Loss

W – John Danks (11-8, 3.85) L – David Hernandez (4-6, 4.35) SV – Bobby Jenks (27)

Hernandez struggled with his control a little bit and he threw too many pitches in each at bat to be able to stretch into the later innings. He threw 96 pitches over 4 innings, allowing 3 runs on 3 hits and 3 walks while striking out 4. Brian Bass replaced him for the 5th and gave up another run, but settled down and ended up pitching through the 6th. Cla Meredith pitched a scoreless 7th despite allowing 2 hits and a walk. Mark Hendrickson threw a perfect frame in the 8th.

The offense struggled against a solid lefty in John Danks. We could only manage 4 hits for the entire game, although we did draw 8 walks. Nolan Reimold tripled and Nick Markakis, Ty Wiggington, and Michael Aubrey each had singles. Brian Roberts walked twice and stole a base, Melvin Mora walked twice, and Cesar Izturis, Adam Jones, Luke Scott, and Wiggington each had a walk.

Player of the game: Nolan Reimold (1-4, triple (2) (.273 AVG))

Its an afternoon game today and we’re facing another tough lefty, Mark Buehrle (11-6, 3.78). Jason Berken (2-11, 6.72) goes for the O’s.
