Another Lopsided Loss 10-4

W – Kevin Slowey (9-5)     L – Jake Arrieta (3-3)

It was just another miserable day for Orioles pitchers yesterday. The Twins racked up 10 runs on 19 hits in the game. Jake Arrieta started off pretty good throwing two scoreless innings to open the game but then it all came apart. He gave up a grand slam in the 3rd inning and another run in the 4th and just like that his day was done. Mark Hendrickson came in for the 5th but he was no better. He gave up a run in the 5th inning and then three more in the 6th before pitching a scoreless 7th inning. Koji Uehara pitched a scoreless 8th although he gave up two hits and David Hernandez gave up a solo homerun in the 9th. We had 10 hits on offense but were 2-9 with runners in scoring position. Luke Scott had another good game with a pair of doubles and a walk. Corey Patterson had a single and a double, Felix Pie had a pair of singles, and Cesar Izturis hit a two RBI single. Matt Wieters, Ty Wiggington, and Miguel Tejada also singled. Despite getting most of our injured players back this has been the hardest stretch of baseball to watch all season for me. The trade deadline and managerial search should spice it up at the end of the week.

Player of the game: Luke Scott – 2-3, R, BB, 2 doubles (20) (.296 AVG)

The Orioles flew into Toronto today to play the Blue Jays. Brad Bergesen (3-8, 6.51) pitches against Brandon Morrow (6-6, 4.71) who pitched well against the O’s last week.
