So the streak is over at two games. Who’s to blame?
Was it David Hernandez for allowing the White Sox to score three runs in just four innings pitched?
Or was it the Orioles‘ offense that stranded 11 and went 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position, including leaving the bases loaded with one out in the top of the third?
I say both.
John Danks silenced the Oriole bats tonight over his 6.1 inning start. Despite walking six he gave up just three hits and one earned run and set up the White Sox for the win.
Baltimore finally got on the board in the seventh inning when Matt Thornton threw one past the catcher A.J. Pierzynski and Luke Scott crossed the plate.
Nolan Reimold played damage control in the seventh inning when he gunned out A.J. Pierzynski at third base. It was a play that saved the Orioles a run and Reimold played it beautifully off the left field wall, but the birds’ offense fell in the loss.
The series is tied at a game a piece. Baltimore hopes to win it’s first series since the All Star break in the rubber game tomorrow at 2 PM. It’s going to be tough, Jason Berken starts against Mark Buehrle.
