Quick Hits: O's Beat the Jays 5-2 Last Night; The Rundown

The Orioles got a much needed win last night at the Yard as Steve Trachsel once again had another quality outing, giving up 3 runs in 6 innings pitched. Sam Perlozzo last night shifted around the batting order to get better results last night, and maybe it worked.

Perhaps the result last night gave the embattled manager a break from the gloom and doom of the past few weeks.

Red-hot Brian Roberts went 3 for 3, and got his average above .300.

The bullpen held the lead, and the team was able to finally win by a score of 5-2.

The O’s won by small ball, and speed as Corey Patterson stole home.

I’m not going to do an extended recap just because I have been so busy today. For those of you interested, I'll have my photos of Kevin Millar and a quick report on the event at the ESPN Zone later on this afternoon when I have more time to myself.

It was a cool hour to have been a part of at the ESPN Zone in the Inner Harbor. For everything going on with the team right now, Kevin Millar is one positive guy, no doubt a team player, and his attitude is very much well needed in the clubhouse.


The Baltimore Sun has a recap of the game last night, as does the Baltimore Examiner and Washington Post. The O, By the Way blog has a recap of last night’s game and erstwhile blogger, Rock Kubatko gives his two cents as well.

Columnist David Steele of the Baltimore Sun has a piece a tad critical of Miguel Tejada, as he is suffering through a power outage and really not helping drive in runs. Miguel’s average may still be above .300, but he’s being paid an exorbitant salary to produce and he’s not doing so. He’s been taking extended batting practice, as well as working with a pitching machine, so it’s not like he’s not putting forth an effort to improve.

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post has an article as well about his lack of power, and as we all know, Miguel Tejada is ever so vital to the O’s offense, and his bat needs to produce.

Spencer Fordin also has a piece on Miguel Tejada.

The Toronto Blue Jays were not happy with Daniel Cabrera on Tuesday, as he hit Troy Glaus during a pivotal really for the team, and on Wednesday night he was called into Sam Perlozzo’s office. Cabrera says he didn’t do it on purpose, and just missed his location.

The Baltimore Sun has a Q&A, this time with Jeremy Guthrie and the topic is about Sam Perlozzo.

In light of the bad news in Oriole-land of late, a group of Orioles that included Brian Roberts, Jay Gibbons, Adam Loewen, Melvin Mora and Corey Patterson participated in the "Buses for Baseball" event and entertained a group of children with cancer from various local hospitals at the Yard last night. They watched batting practice and spent time with their heroes; therefore, afterwards, they took in a great night of baseball.
