What started off as a lovely Memorial Day with the sun out and warm ended as a grey, damp, soggy afternoon; however, the Orioles overcame the poor conditions out and defeated the Blue Jays, 4-1, to kick off the three game set at Camden Yards. Honestly, I thought the game was going to sent into a rain delay, but for some reason, the umpires decided to make a go of it, and both teams did complete the game.
Jeremy Guthrie had to endure some horrific conditions on the mound -- specifically towards the end of the game -- to earn his fourth win of the season. He performed like a trooper as he went seven innings and only yielded a single run -- via a RBI single by Vernon Wells in the first inning. Meanwhile, Guthrie's opponent on the mound -- Brian Tallet -- went six innings and gave up two runs in a solid performance, but took the loss. George Sherill got the save -- his 10th.
