Baltimore still hasn’t given Jon Lester his first “L” against the O’s, but I’m confident that this is the team that finally will.
Friday, Wei-Yin Chen kept the Orioles in the game with a five inning performance in which he surrendered three earned runs. Then the Orioles bullpen shut down the Sox. Matt Lindstrom, Pedro Strop, Luis Ayala, Troy Patton and Jim Johnson combined for eight shutout innings in relief.
As Brittany Ghiroli reports, the Orioles bullpen lowered their league leading ERA to 1.56 with last night’s effort.
