Adam Eaton has not instilled much confidence in me as a pitcher, and he continued that trend on Saturday night. He only lasted four innings, and gave up six runs as Baltimore lost to Boston again, 6-4. This is their third straight loss, in which the starting pitching has suffered and there doesn't seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel. The Orioles have lost five in row overall against the Red Sox.
Boston scored once in the second, and then four times in third thanks in large part to a Kevin Youkilis three-run homer along with a Mike Lowell RBI. Eaton allowed all of Baltimore's runs, and the bullpen pitched three scoreless innings in the loss. Baltimore had a four run fifth inning highlighted by an Aubrey Huff two-run double along with a Nick Markakis bases loaded walk; however, the Boston offense was too strong again on the evening.
