After a deflating loss to Tampa on Tuesday afternoon that saw Koji Uehara lose despite a strong effort, the Orioles rebounded last night and won in a rain-shortened game defeating the Minnesota Twins, 4-1, in six innings. It was sloppy, wet, and miserable, but the Orioles pulled it out.
Since the Twins are only in town once it looks like Major League Baseball did their best to try to get the game in. Both Baltimore and Minnesota fought through four -- yes, four rain delays -- but the home team came through in the first inning as Nick Markakis hit a two run homer and then Luke Scott drove in a run with an RBI-single. They added another run in the 4th inning as Luke Scott hit a solo home run to put Baltimore up 4-1.
