4th Loss In A Row, 8-2

W – Ricky Romero (8-7)     L – Kevin Millwood (2-10)

The losing woes continue as the Orioles lost their fourth game in a row and 11th straight this season against the Blue Jays. Kevin Millwood got beat around again. His first inning struggles didn’t get any better last night as he gave up three runs right away. Overall he gave up 6 runs on 10 hits and 4 walks over 5.1 innings with 5 strikeouts. Some good news from Michael Gonzalez, he pitched 1.2 scoreless innings with a strikeout. It would be great if he could come back and be the guy we signed him to be. Alfredo Simon struggled in the 8th inning giving up two runs on a homerun by Jose Bautista, his second of the game. The Orioles only runs came in the top of the 8th inning when Nick Markakis doubled in Julio Lugo who singled and Luke Scott hit a sacrifice fly to score Miguel Tejada, who also singled. Markakis and Tejada also had singles earlier in the game, as did Matt Wieters. Adam Jones had a pair of singles as well as his 14th double of the season and Felix Pie walked. Its not getting any better.

Player of the game: Adam Jones – 3-4, double (14) (.276 AVG)

One more in Toronto tonight as Brad Mills (0-0, -.–) makes his first start of the season against Jeremy Guthrie (4-10, 4.46), the only Oriole starter thats pitched well lately.
