O’s Lose Again To Blue Jays 9-5

W – Brandon Morrow (7-6)     L – Brad Bergesen (3-9)     SV – David Purcey (1)

We can’t beat the Blue Jays this year. We’re 0-10 on the season against Toronto and they gave us another beating last night. Brad Bergesen looked like he was throwing batting practice out there. He gave up 10 hits (including 4 doubles and 3 homeruns) and a walk over 5 innings. Hes been struggling so much lately that I doubt he makes his next turn in the rotation. He needs to go back down to AAA Norfolk until September. Bring Zach Britton up and let him pitch until his innings limit is reached. Matt Albers pitched the last 3 innings allowing a run on 3 hits with 4 strikeouts. The offense did well last night, but not until we were already losing 8-0. Matt Wieters hit two homeruns and also walked twice. The Orioles would love if he could start being the switch hitting Jesus that everyone thought he would be. Luke Scott also hit a homerun, his 17th. Brian Roberts and Jake Fox each singled and doubled. Adam Jones doubled, Nick Markakis singled and walked, and Cesar Izturis singled. Our struggles with runners in scoring position continued as we went 0-6 in that regard.

Player of the game: Matt Wieters – 2-2, 2 R, 3 RBI, 2 BB, 2 HR (8) (.251 AVG)

We’ll give it another shot tonight, sending Kevin Millwood (2-9, 5.84) to the mound against Ricky Romero (7-7, 3.52).
