The Good Daniel Returns

We can officially say that Daniel Cabrera is an engima. He had a great April-May; however, the tall righty went winless in June, but last night -- he was masterful. Who knows if he will ever be consistent, but when he's good -- he's real good and has the goods to be a top flight starter in the game.

He went nine innings, gave up two runs on seven hits en route to his sixth victory of the season as the Orioles defeated the Royals, 5-2 last night at Camden Yards.

Despite giving up an early home run to David DeJesus and an RBI in the third to Mike Alives, Cabrera shut down the Royals thereafter, including retiring 13 batters in succession until the eighth inning. The game was played in a brisk 2:16, and Daniel had a little help from Aubrey Huff and 15th home run, as well RBI's from Brian Roberts, Nick Markakis and Ramon Hernandez (who also had three hits).

Guys, what do you think of D-Cab's performance last night and what does it bode for Baltimore?
