Let's Play Two; Baltimore Beats the Chi-Sox, 5-1; Burres Goes Eight Shut-Out Frames...

Well, the Orioles keep on rolling. Brian Burres threw eight shut-out innings as Baltimore beat up on the White Sox, 5-1.

White Sox starter John Danks, who was locked in a duel with Burres for the first part of the game and was perfect for five innings, gave up an Adam Jones' sixth-inning single. Thereafter, Guillermo Quiroz broke open the game with a two-run home run.

Baltimore added three runs in ninth and it was capped off by Brian Roberts' two-run double. Chicago had a chance to come back as they loaded the bases in the ninth, as Matt Albers was extremely shaky. Trembley summoned George Sherrill into the game, and he allowed a run to score by hitting a batter with the bases loaded; however, he got the hot Joe Crede to pop up to right and the game was over.

More on the game from the Washington Post & Baltimore Examiner.

The Orioles play again at 7:05 ET. Good ol' Steve Trachsel takes on Mark Buehrle.

James Baker of Oriole Magic gives a preview of the series.

As we know, Adam Loewen is on the DL, and Peter Schmuck believes that the youngster should rest up and heal before even returning.

Despite the O's success in April, they have a lot of holes to cover on the pitching front.

However, Matt Albers is happy in his current role.

If any of you saw the Seattle game on Thursday and the fan incident in the latter half of the game, you've got to see the quotes that Roch Kubatko has in his latest post on his blog from Dave Trembley. I guess Trembley is hardcore after all, though what he said sounds like something circa 1979.

Spencer Fordin from the Orioles MLB site has more on Trembley's words.

Bill Ripken and an envoy from Ripken Baseball will be headed to China again to spread the word of baseball with the Olympics coming up.

I'll be gone for perhaps much of the weekend, so posts may be few and far between. I'll be headed out to cover ultimate fighting tonight, and then time with the boss on Sunday along with the Cubs game on Sunday in Washington.

Talk to you all later.
