O’s Play Spoilers, Take Three From Boston

Game One: Orioles 6, Red Sox 5

– Jeremy Guthrie gave up four runs over six innings but the bullpen held the Red Sox to one run after that and the offense did the rest. Robert Andino and Nolan Reimold each hit homeruns. Matt Angle and Matt Wieters each doubled, Wieters also walked twice. JJ Hardy had two singles and an RBI.

Player of the game: Nolan Reimold – 2-4, 2 R, RBI, HR (12) (.240 AVG)

Game Two: Orioles 9, Red Sox 18

– The offense was able to knock John Lackey out of the game early in game two of the double header. Matt Angle, Nick Markakis, Vladimir Guerrero, and Chris Davis all had multiple hits. Unfortunately Brian Matusz started and gave up six runs over 1.2 innings. I’ve never seen someone go from potential staff ace to abysmal so fast. He know holds the major league record for highest ERA with at least 40 IP at 10.68. Chris Jakubauskas gave up five runs over an inning and Jeremy Accardo four.

Player of the game: Nick Markakis – 2-3, 2 R, 2 RBI, BB, triple (1), SB (12) (.278 AVG)

Game Three: Orioles 7, Red Sox 5

– Rick VandenHurk dug the O’s an early hole, giving up five runs over three innings. The bullpen held Boston scoreless over the next six innings and allowed the offense to claw their way back. Robert Andino hit the game winning, bases clearing double in the 8th inning. Nick Markakis and Adam Jones each had three hits and Mark Reynolds had two.

Player of the game: Robert Andino – 3-5, R, 3 RBI, double (22), SB (11) (.269 AVG)

Game Four: Orioles 6, Red Sox 4

– Tommy Hunter gave us a very Tommy Hunter like performance, giving up four runs over 6.2 innings. He throws strikes and gets deep into games but most times out seems to give up three or four runs. He keeps us in the game at least. Mark Reynolds was happy he did because he hit a pair of homeruns, the second one giving us the lead late in the game. Nick Markakis doubled and walked and JJ Hardy singled twice in the game.

Player of the game: Mark Reynolds – 2-4, 2 R, 3 RBI, 2 HR (36) (.223 AVG)
