About Yesterday: Orioles Lose to White Sox, 6-1

The Baltimore Orioles are still in first place in the American League East, tied with the Rays (who would have thought about this scenario in Spring Training); however, their visit to the Windy City has not gone as expected.

Our Orioles lost their second game in a row, as Paul Konerko went 2-for-2 with a pair of solo home runs as the Other Sox beat us, 6-1 on Sunday.

Jose Contreras (2-2) threw 6 2/3 innings, in his second start of the year against Baltimore, gave up on run on five hits, striking out and walking three.

Out leadoff hitter, Brian Roberts, looks to be out of his slump as he went 2-for-3 and drove in Baltimore’s only run.

Melvin Mora & Nick Markakis both had hits; meanwhile, Jeremy Guthrie (0-3), was the hard luck loser – again – as he gave up three runs on five hits in five innings of work.

Now, only if Guthrie had run support…

Daniel Cabrera, coming off two great outings, will serve as the stopper today as he squares off against Javier Vazquez as Baltimore goes for the split in the series.

After today’s game, which will be played at 2:05 today, they fly back home for a brief three game set against the Rays.
