The Orioles on Saturday night won thanks the impressive pitching of Jeremy Guthrie and a late single by Aubrey Huff; meanwhile, on Sunday -- things were not good -- in fact, they looked awful in the latter half of the game. Yesterday's starter Daniel Cabrera perhaps blew the game in the seventh thanks to his inability to field his position, and the Seattle put up a three spot in the inning.
That broke a tie, and vaulted Seattle to a 8-4 win. Once again, Cabrera was shaky as he went 6 inning and gave up seven runs -- all earned -- thus, once has to think will this guy ever get himself under control or figure it out? It becomes frustrating when you look at this guy's potential and wonder if he could ever -- and I mean ever -- figure it out.
It would have been nice to see the Orioles earn the sweep, but once again, the lack of strong starting pitching cost them. Despite the loss, Brian Roberts, Kevin Millar and Luke Scott had two hits each -- one of the hits being Roberts' 8th homer.
And who would have thought Aubrey Huff would be hitting .304 in August after the year he had in 2007?
Let's hope Adam Jones isn't injured -- please; as well, we are still looking for a starter on Tuesday -- could it Penn (of course it doesn't help he got hit by a bat this weekend and got hurt)? Bergesen, the promising youngster from Bowie? Cormier? Or let be anyone from the system; however, just don't go out on the market and get someone...
And yes, Bedard spoke. He spoke well of his time in Baltimore; alas, what a lot of people have seen and read out of Seattle, he's been nothing but a surly jerk -- however, it was nice to hear him be complementary of the city and organization.
