O’s Blow Five Run Lead, Lose 6-5

W – Max Scherzer (12-7)     L – Jeremy Guthrie (5-16)     SV – Jose Valverde (35)

– Things were looking good heading into the 6th inning. The offense had jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the 2nd inning. Adam Jones led off the inning with a single then Vladimir Guerrero hit a two run homer. Matt Wieters followed with a single, Chris Davis reached on an error, and then Blake Davis hit his first major league homerun. Guerrero and Blake Davis each singled in the game also. Chris Davis had two singles as well.
– Unfortunately the 5-0 lead wasn’t enough because Jeremy Guthrie gave up a run in the 4th inning and then five more in the 6th to blow the game. He gave up eight hits and two walks over 5.2 innings with a strikeout. Chris Jakubauskas finished the 6th and pitched two more scoreless innings. Mike Gonzalez pitched a scoreless 9th but the offense was never able to get the lead back.

Player of the game: Blake Davis – 2-4, 3 Run HR (1) (.268 AVG)
