It was another impressive showing by Koji Uehara as the the Baltimore Orioles beat a formidable Dominican Republic team tuning up for the World Baseball Classic, 6-1.
Once again, Koji Uehara was golden on the mound as he threw three consecutive innings to lead the Orioles to victory. His only real mistake came about as he hit Willy Taveras with a pitch; however, he was efficient -- only needing 36 pitches to go through his afternoon.
So far, I more I reead about Uehara -- the more like him. He may not throw hard, but his control seems to be impeccable, and at this point as long as he throws strikes, has movement on his pitches, and gets guys out, he'll go a long way in being a small part in making the Orioles respectable again.
