Bats Still Asleep; Another Loss 3-1

W – Jason Vargas (2-1)     L – David Hernandez (0-3)     SV – David Aardsma (6)

Dave Trembley can’t keep his job through all this. Its literally the same old story every game. The casual fans have already completely lost interest in the team for this year, having given up and chalking it up to another miserable, typical Orioles season. Even the more serious fans might to that point. On top of that, there was a point in last nights game for Trembley to make a statement. Julio Lugo grounded out in the 2nd inning and didn’t run it out at all. He was really dogging it. Jim Palmer commented that it was unacceptable in the announcers booth, yet Lugo played the rest of the game like nothing had happened. Trembley should’ve removed him from the game immediately to show that its not ok to be lazy in the first month of the season when the game was very much still to be decided. When asked about it after the game Dave said he didn’t remember the play in question. Give me a break. 2-13. Thats a terrible stretch no matter where in the schedule it takes place. We face once of the best pitchers in the game tonight then fly to Boston for three games. We’re in serious trouble and we’re staring 2-17 or 3-16 in the face. I think on the April 26th off day the Orioles will make a change at manager. They have to. And if not then, then sometime not to long after that.

In last nights game David Hernandez gave up a quality start, pitching good enough to win for most teams. He went 6.1 innings allowing 3 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks while striking out a pair. Will Ohman came in to get the last two outs of the 7th inning, including his first strikeout of the season. Matt Albers pitched a scoreless 8th. On offense the only run came in the first inning. Ty Wiggington walked and was doubled in by Nolan Reimold. Wiggington also singled in the game, continuing his great start to the season. Matt Wieters had a pair of hits in the game including his first double of the season. Its nice to see him finally get another extra base hit. Its not nice to see Adam Jones (.215), Nick Markakis (.222), Reimold (.171), Luke Scott (.186), and Garrett Atkins (.220) playing the way they are.

Player of the game: Matt Wieters (2-4, double (1) (.302 AVG))

Like I said earlier the O’s get to face on of the best pitchers in the game and AL Cy Young runner up from 2009 Felix Hernandez (1-0, 3.10) tonight. We’ll counter with Kevin Millwood (0-2, 2.89) who will probably get his third loss despite pitching as good as he has in years.
