O’s Lose Rubber Game 8-6

W – Shawn Camp (2-3)     L – Willie Eyre (1-1)     SV – Frank Francisco (12)

– Tommy Hunter started and didn’t fare too well. He gave up six runs (five earned) on nine hits and a walk over six innings with three strikeouts. After the game he was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons. He was released later and it appears to have been severe dehydration. The game was tied going into the 8th inning until Willie Eyre gave up a two run homer to Brett Lawrie. He came out of the game with one out, Zach Phillips got the second out, and freshly brought up with rosters expanding Rick VandenHurk got the final out and pitch a scoreless 9th.
– Only three players had hits for the Orioles but we still scored six runs somehow. Vladimir Guerrero and Matt Wieters hit back to back homeruns in the 4th inning. Wieters also had an RBI double and a walk. Guerrero had three RBIs on two doubles. Robert Andino singled and doubled, Nick Markakis walked twice, and Adam Jones was hit by a pitch and walked. Wieters has been hitting very well since August. I’m sure many have lost interest and not noticed but hes trying to give us reason to be excited for next season.

Player of the game: Vladimir Guerrero – 3-4, 2 R, 4 RBI, 2 doubles (23), HR (11) (.280 AVG)

The Orioles head down to Tampa Bay to face David Price (12-11, 3.40) and the Rays tonight. Zach Britton (8-9, 4.28) will try to build off his last start.
