Quick Hits - The O's Lose Another Close One: A's Top the O's, 3-2...

A’s and Orioles -- May 25th, 2006

Once again, the Orioles lost another one run game, in a low scoring affair, as the A’s beat us 3-2. The losing spell continues, as we have lost 9 out of 12 games, and the bats are once again very, very cold.

Oakland stud Dan Haren won his fifth straight game, as a he only allowed two hits and a run over seven innings. He was amazing last night and showed why he’s one of the best young guns in the American League.

Erik Bedard had another great outing as he gave up three runs over seven innings, and now he’s got the AL lead in strikeouts.

Nick Swisher once again hit yet another homer off the Orioles, as he hit a two-run homer in the third inning. The A’s other run was driven in by Hiram Bocachica via a sac fly.

The O’s offense came via a Miguel Tejada single that scored Brian Roberts in the first inning, and Kevin Millar homered in the 8th inning.

The two teams match-up again tonight.


Jeff Zrebiec has a recap of the action from last night for the Baltimore Sun.

The Washington Post has also has a recap of the game.

Melvin Mora did not play last night, and apparently he found out through a member of the Baltimore media, rather than the manager – not a good move on Sam’s part. Understandably, Mora was upset with the move last night due to the lack of communication and I’m going to take his side on the issue. Roch Kubatko has more thoughts on the issue in his blog.

There’s more from David Ginsburg about Melvin Mora from the Baltimore Examiner, Washington Post and Spencer Fordin of the

In light of the struggles with former setup man, Danys Baez, the Orioles will now have a bullpen-by-committee according to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post.

Erik Bedard left last night from the stadium before he could be interviewed by the media. Personally, I don’t care, but honestly, he comes off sometimes as a complete jerk and he should be lucky he’s in the position he has. If it is too much to stick around and give an interview (keep in mind, he’s being paid handsomely), then he should get a desk job.

Matt Palmer of the Baltimore Examiner has a great piece on the event with Kevin Millar at the ESPN Zone on Thursday.

If you’re going to the game this weekend, the traffic might be tough to deal with
