O’s Lose For First Time Under Showalter 4-2

W – Gavin Floyd (8-8)     L – Jason Berken (3-3)     SV – JJ Putz (3)

Kevin Millwood finally came through with a good start after getting roughed up each time out for the last three months. He only allowed one run over 6 innings on 4 hits and 2 walks while striking out 2 batters. The most surprising part of the performance was that he was able to make it out of the 1st inning without allowing a run. His pitch count caught up with him and Jason Berken started the 7th inning. Berken has been struggling lately and that trend continued last night. He gave up a run in the 7th before getting out of the inning and then left with one out in the 8th with a runner on base. Matt Albers came in and allowed that run to score which gave the White Sox a 3-2 lead before getting out of the inning. He gave up another run in the 9th but it was unearned due to a Josh Bell error. The offense was held to six hits in the game. Two of those came from Adam Jones with a single and a solo homerun which gave us an early 1-0 lead. The lead became two when Ty Wiggington singled in Nick Markakis who had doubled high off the scoreboard. Luke Scott and Felix Pie each singled and Markakis and Matt Wieters walked. We just didn’t have many chances as Gavin Floyd and the Chicago bullpen shut us down and unfortunately our bullpen came apart late.

Player of the game: Adam Jones – 2-4, solo HR (16) (.278 AVG)

We’ll try to come out today and take back the series lead as our second half ace Jeremy Guthrie (4-11, 4.23) pitches against Mark Buehrle (10-8, 4.05).
