Last week things just felt like they weren’t clicking for the Orioles, this week it’s the complete opposite.
The O’s sent down relief pitcher Chris Ray so David Hernandez could make his major league debut. Hernandez became the fourth new Oriole to win his first start in the majors. He pitched 5.2 innings and gave up only one earned run.
Matt Albers, Jim Johnson, and George Sherrill kept it together and pitched 3.1 scoreless innings.
Luke Scott is off the DL and hit 2 more homeruns. You’ll remember that Scott hit a bomb off Roy Halladay on Wednesday. He now has 3 homers in 2 days since his return.
Luke isn’t the only one with a hot bat. Nolan Reimold hit another homerun, that’s 3 days in a row. Reimold is now hitting .264 with 5 homers in just 53 at bats this season.
The O’s won their 4th straight and have won 6 of their last 7.
Oh by the way, Happy Matt Wieters’ Day!
