The O's Lose to the Twinkies, Er, I Mean the Twins; Quick Hits...

There was not much to say about the Orioles game on Sunday, as the Minnesota Twins soundly defeated the Baltimore Orioles, 2-0. Amazingly, Minnesota had a no hitter going until the ninth inning when our golden boy -- Matt Wieters -- broke it with with a single. Folks, Matt is batting well over .400 and seemingly is locked in at the plate; furthermore, I don't see anyone fooling him so far at the plate. Aside from Wieters' hit, the Orioles were quieted at the plate.

The other story on Sunday involves Danys Baez -- who is on the comeback trail after injury and missing the 2008 season -- actually looked very good. Baez pitched four innings and definitely left a great impression as he's trying to make it as a starter. He struck out two and walked four.

His counterpart on the mound, Francisco Liriano -- who himself has made a incredible comeback from injury -- put on a pitching clinic as he threw four no-hit innings and struck out five batter.

I still think Baez winds up in the bullpen; however, he may have just have been trying to get some work in during his past few starts, and now may be feeling very comfortable on the mound.
