Two games in our nation’s capital and two nail biting pitcher’s duels.
Koji Uehara exited the game early, he appeared to be gassed after just 3 innings of work, it was reportedly a hamstring issue. I know it’s getting a little hot, but it’s only going to get more humid here in Charm City. Hopefully Uehara can handle the heat, literally.
The Orioles only had 3 base hits in the game. Nick Markakis put the O’s on the board in the 3rd with a bases loaded infield RBI single. After Guzman tied the game at 1 with a solo homerun, Aubrey Huff came up for a pinch hit RBI triple in the 7th. 2-1 Birds.
George Sherrill came in to save his second straight game, 9th on the year. Sherrill secured a series win when he sat down the National’s 6, 7, and 8 batters, Flat Breezy struck out the side folks.
